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, Menzie has been likened to Tom Petty My Morning Jacket and was highly praised by Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexmith.
His recently released sophomore album, Adolescent Nature (2016), followed his top-four placement in CBC’s 2016 Searchlight Competition. The lead single, “Kenya” secured Menzie’s high standing in this National competition. The single
also spent eight weeks on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20 countdown including two weeks 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)
