SIMPLY PUT, Dylan LeBlanc is an American musician and artist.
Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, LeBlanc caught the music bug early. He was performing in clubs by the time he was fifteen years old.
Growing up, LeBlanc lived with his mother in Blanchard, LA; a small town in the northeast corner of Shreveport. Working full-time cleaning houses, LeBlanc's mother raised Dylan and his two siblings. At ten, LeBlanc relocated to Muscle Shoals, AL so his father could pursue his career as a professional songwriter. In Muscle Shoals, LeBlanc acquired a unique musical education. He spent late nights watching musicians record at the studios where his father played on sessions for songs he wrote.
After the lead singer of Sons of Roswell resigned, LeBlanc joined the Muscle Shoals band and toured the southeastern US. A few years later, LeBlanc became a co-founder of Abraham. He made his first recordings with Abraham at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL. After the dissolution of Abraham, LeBlanc began to work on his own material with a friend he met at FAME, Ben Tanner. That relationship continues to this day.
In early 2010, LeBlanc released his first album Paupers Field (Rough Trade). In support of the album, LeBlanc toured with and opened for acts such as Lucinda Williams, The Civil Wars, Laura Marling, and Calexico.
LeBlanc's second album, Cast the Same Old Shadow (Rough Trade), was released in August 2012. Following its release, LeBlanc played with Bruce Springsteen, First Aid Kit, The Drive-By Truckers and the Alabama Shakes. The Guardian review of Cast the Same Old Shadow called its songs "as beautiful as they are bleak" and the album "eerie rather than unsettling".
In 2015, LeBlanc signed to Single Lock Records, where he has been working with Tanner and John Paul White (The Civil Wars) on Cautionary Tale, his third studio album.
