With his compelling, sprawling vocal range, a striking mix of familiar yet sophisticated musical lines, and adept guitar skills, Dylan Menzie is quickly becoming one of Prince Edward Island's prime exports. Hailing from Belle River, PEI, the singer-songwriter has been heralded as "the next big voice in Canadian music" (CBC).
Produced and recorded by award-winning producer Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant,Fortunate Ones, Oh Pep!), Adolescent Nature showcases Dylan Menzie's fervor towards big sounds, charismastic turns of phrases, and persitent pop leanings. From the cacophonous crashing album opener "Talk To Me," to the rolling "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," to the Byrds-meets-Zeppelin twelve-string finale, "That's The Way," Menzie tackles unabashedly large questions about life and love on this, his sophomore record.
Praise for Dylan Menzie:
"...with lyrical tricks up his sleeve and instrumental creativity to boot...it's easy to compare him to some of Canada's best songwriters, I can't imagine it will be long until we're comparingothers to him." - CBC Music
"...the P.E.I native uses an impressive vocal range to ask the big questions about loveand the universe." - Dusty Organ
"His sound is a melodic roller coaster of pure tones, deliberately designed guitar-driven undercurrents, and lyrics that draw listeners to their glory days – the days of true love, good times, and the even mixture of innocence and grit that is the frivolity of youth." - The East
Dylan is a regional finalist in the 2016 CBC Searchlight contest.
