  • Recording information: Flame Studios, Muscle Shoals, AL; Red Barn; The Nutt House, Sheffield, AL.
  • Photographer: Amanda Chapman.
  • Dylan LeBlanc's Rough Trade debut aches with the kind world-weary angst and faux-wisdom that serves as the foundation for countless other confessional singer/songwriters. That the Louisiana native is only 20 years old will have some crying foul, but this son of a Muscle Shoals session player has grown up watching his mentors exorcize their demons through music, so why shouldn't he? Paupers Field, a 12-track collection of slow, soulful country-folk, falls somewhere between Nick Drake, Jason Molina, Kelly Joe Phelps and Fleet Foxes. LeBlanc's smoky, emotive voice carries with it the reluctant ardor of his southern homeland, and his tales of love, life, loss and death feel real enough, if not duly informed by a lot of late nights nursing a pilfered bottle of bourbon over a stack of Neil Young and Townes Van Zandt records. It's hard to deny the thick fog of finger-picked, '70s soft rock that hangs over Paupers Field, but standout cuts -- like the weepy "Emma Hartley," "Low," "Death of Outlaw Billy John," and "If the Creek Don't Rise," the latter of which features effortless harmony vocals from none other than Emmylou Harris -- show a great deal of promise, especially when this old soul, saddled with the weight of a young man's preconceptions, finds those ideals both met and shattered. ~ James Christopher Monger
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - 3 stars out of 5 -- "He's got the doomed romanticism of Townes Van Zandt, and his slurry voice shines with backup from Emmylou Harris and dad James."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he likes of 'If The Creek Don't Rise,' 'Changing Of The Seasons' and 'Coyote Creek' evoke an irresistible air of American romanticism."

Clash (magazine) - "Dylan LeBlanc does excel in songcraft, belying his years to produce something remarkably mature and confident."

Uncut (magazine) (p.90) - "[Dylan is] blessed with a beautiful, smoky voice, which melts wistfully into the pedal steel of sometime Burrito Brother Wayne Bridge. It's quite lovely..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.35) - Ranked #34 in Uncut's "The 50 Best Albums of 2010" -- "[A] measured, rueful take on outlaw folk.."
