Acclaimed PEI singer-songwriter prepares “DYLAN MENZIE OF CHRISTMAS YET TO COME”– an intimate & festive evening of music with special guests, surprises & more.
His voice grabbed me immediately, I can’t wait to hear what else he has to offer... No bells and whistles, just talent.
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.
“Dylan Menzie is a Canadian treasure - a combination of Springsteen, Fleet Foxes and Jim James (My Morning Jacket)”.
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.
Super high energy performance by Dylan Menzie at Contact East in Saint John last weekend. From really rocking out tunes to well written smoother ballads this young man is going places fast.
Dylan Menzie makes a definite impression with his music. This young fellow has a sound that is simultaneously unique and familiar. These songs feature intelligent lyrics and nice winding melodies. And Menzie has a voice that really makes his songs hit home. This guy is obviously headed on a quick path to success. Adolescent Nature features six originals and, surprisingly, ends with a cool cover of Robert Plant and Jimmy Page’s ‘That’s The Way’.
