New Single from Dylan LeBlanc Plus EP Announce
Dylan LeBlanc is paying homage to the artists who inspired his unique sound with the upcoming Pastimes EP, due out June 18, a self-produced collection of six covers that LeBlanc says inspired him musically and spiritually.
Pastimes was recorded at Fame Recording Studios in Muscle Shoals, live and with as few takes as possible in order to capture a sense of authenticity. Says LeBlanc, “I feel like music is nothing more than a spiritual endeavor to widen the horizons and heighten the senses of the things inside of everyone that sometimes feel unreachable.”
The release is will also be available on orange vinyl, shipping in early November which you can pre-order here.
“I come from a heavy country music background,” says LeBlanc. “My father made his living as a writer for the Nashville Machine growing up. My grandfather in the early 70’s in his early thirties was convinced to make payments on a Gibson guitar on consignment at the local music store along with a song book with the scales and chords and hit songs of the era inside with directions on how to play them. He loved this song and it was heavily played around the house and passed and sang at gatherings and parties where everyone was drinking and laughing and feeling no pain as they say. I love the story of this song about a drifter roaming from place untethered to anyone or anything therefore making the moment of missing his muse more pure. I can relate as I have naturally always wanted to roam from place to place and be free. I love this song so much and it holds a nostalgic and wonderful place in my heart.”
