The Angel Voice from Louisiana

[wide][/wide] Dylan LeBlanc was born in 1990 in Shreveport (Louisiana). He grew up hanging out among the session musicians at Fame Studios. By age 7, LeBlanc was already learning how to play a picking style on the guitar and began writing his own songs when his father bought him a guitar for his 11th birthday. When he turned 15 he began to hone his songwriting by playing live whenever he could, often traveling hundreds of miles on his own to play to just a handful of people. His musical influences include Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young and Spooner Oldham.
As soon as he was of legal age, LeBlanc was signed to Fame Music by Rodney Hall. Part of the deal was that LeBlanc got access to the studio, where he recorded his debut album. In early 2009, Rough Trade Records founder Geoff Travis was introduced to LeBlanc’s music and signed him to Rough Trade.
Dylan LeBlanc plays an acoustic rendition of ‘Emma Hartley’ the single taken from his album ‘Paupers Field’, released in August 2010.
