Following an initial North American headline tour and extensive European run, LeBlanc begins the new dates in Charleston SC at Music Farm on October 31. Major markets include Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Cleveland and more. In December, LeBlanc will dazzle fans in intimate settings on a short solo acoustic tour. A full list of dates is below and at dylanleblanc.com.
Renegade was released in June to great critical-acclaim. Produced by Grammy Award winner Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton), the album was recorded at Nashville’s famous RCA Studio A and is Dylan’s fourth studio album.
Recent Praise includes:
“Welcome to LeBlanc’s finest hour…a full-fledged Tom Petty styled strum rocker, complete with enhanced reverb and a driving insistently propulsive rhythm.” American Songwriter – 4/5 Stars
“With Renegade, LeBlanc is fully out of his shell, discovering the range that was there all along, waiting to be found.” No Depression
“One of the best records, from any genre, of 2019” – Folk Alley
“A minor-key rocker, ‘Renegade’ would’ve dominated the FM radio in 1982, back when Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers filled the airwaves with darkly-driven anthems. Producer Dave Cobb captures LeBlanc and his road band, the Pollies, in their natural habitat: playing together live, guitars blaring, with LeBlanc’s voice piercing its way through the reverb.” Rolling Stone
“One of modern country’s most interesting voices, in both senses of the term” UNCUT – 8/10 Stars
“…the singer-songwriter has turned down the rock edge and cranked up the swelling orchestra to better emphasize an increasingly important point.” Flood
Leading up to Renegade’s release Leblanc released a number of live videos, filmed at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL where Dylan used to work and first began recording music. Watch the title track here and a beautiful performance of stand-out album closer Honor Among Thieves.
Born in Shreveport, LA with time spent in Muscle Shoals, AL, LeBlanc has released three full-length albums including his most recent, 2016’s Cautionary Tale, which featured Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes) and was produced by John Paul White (The Civil Wars) and Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes). NPR Music praised, “The third album from the Muscle Shoals singer-songwriter unfolds with the wariness of a social and spiritual outsider who broods his way to graceful defiance,” while No Depression declared, “There’s not a single song that deserves to be skipped on Tale—it’s a near flawless record, cohesive and self-assured.” Since his debut in 2010, LeBlanc has toured extensively worldwide including shows with Bruce Springsteen, First Aid Kit, Drive-By Truckers, Lucinda Williams, Alabama Shakes, Anderson East, The Wood Brothers and many more.
