Since 2013, Prince Edward Island’s Dylan Menzie has been steadily building a catalog of acclaimed, award winning music. Drawing inspiration from acts like Wilco, Fleet Foxes, and Vampire Weekend; Dylan Menzie is a combination of folk, rock, and pop elements best described as Indie Pop Americana. His dynamic vocals and compelling songwriting have given him the opportunity to showcase & tour across Canada and other countries around the world. Including performances at Edmonton Folk Festival, Australia Music Week, Breakout West, M for Montreal, Americanafest UK and many more.

In his upcoming release - North American Dream Kid - Menzie weaves together a collection of vulnerable, catchy, and sometimes ironic songs - with themes surrounding love, depression, the housing crisis, and the abuse of power - to create a narrative about a naive dreamer. Someone trying to make their way in North America, who becomes enraged by the corruption, profiteering and trickery they’re surrounded by - and ultimately seeks an escape to a quiet life.

Extremely excited to be back on the West Coast again, Menzie will be joined by his band of powerhouse East Coast musicians - Hannah Melanson (Keys), Joey Esker (Drums) and Maya Marquez (Bass)!
