With his unmistakable and compelling vocal range, a striking mix of familiar yet sophisticated musical lines and adept guitar skills, Dylan Menzie is quickly becoming one of Atlantic Canada’s prime musical exports. Hailing from Belle River, PEI, Menzie has been likened to Tom Petty and was highly praised by Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexmith. His latest EP, Adolescent Nature, followed his top-four placement in CBC’s 2016 Searchlight Competition. The lead singles “Kenya” and “Talk to Me” each spent eight weeks on CBC Radio 2 Top 20 countdown, including two at number one.
“Dylan Menzie is a Canadian treasure - a combination of Springsteen, Fleet Foxes and Jim James (My Morning Jacket)”. -Meg Shorette; All Roads Music Festival (Belfast, ME)
