BIO
What most need a band to achieve, Dylan Menzie’s got you covered with his compelling, sprawling vocal range, a striking mix of familiar yet sophisticated musical lines and adept guitar skills. Hailing from Belle River, PEI, Dylan Menzie has been compared to Joel Plaskett, U2 and Fleet Foxes. Menzie was highly praised by one of Canada’s foremost singer-songwriters, Ron Sexmith, when he opened for Sexsmith at the PEI Jazz n’ Blues Festival, 2014. Menzie’s debut album, Heather Avenue (2013), earned multiple Music PEI award nominations and numerous showcase opportunities, including Folk Music Ontario and East Coast Music Week, where CBC pegged Menzie as one of five artists to watch as the “next big voice in Canadian music.” Menzie recently released a video for “I Wanna Know,” an unrelenting pop smash which poses unabashedly large questions about life and love; we dare you to listen to it only once. He is currently recording his follow up album with Juno nominated and ECMA award-winning producer Daniel Ledwell.
 

MEDIA QUOTES
“The next big voice in Canadian Music.”- CBC

"His voice grabbed me immediately, I can't wait to hear what else he has to offer... No bells and whistles, just talent." - Dallas Smith

"Dylan is one of the most promising – and one of my favourite - artists to come out of the Maritimes in years, and that’s saying a lot, considering the wealth of talent that’s out here. His songwriting and voice are generational, and whether it’s from the stage or through the stereo, I always find myself just totally captivated and immersed in the experience." — Andrew King, Editor, Canadian Musician

"Dylan Menzie is one of my favourite musicians coming out of the Maritimes today; with lyrical tricks up his sleeve and instrumental creativity to boot, it’s not hard to see why music communities are already getting behind his music. With songs like ‘Kenya’ and ‘I Wanna Know,’ it’s easy to compare him to some of Canada’s best songwriters, I can’t imagine it will be long until we’re comparing others to him." — Kerry Martin, CBC
