“Dylan Menzie is one of Atlantic Canada’s most dazzling stars in the music scene.” -The East Mag
With a sprawling vocal range and compelling approach to composition, Dylan Menzie made an indelible mark in the talent-rich Atlantic Canadian music market with his debut EP, Heather Avenue, in 2013. Its success spurred high-profile performances throughout the Maritimes, including opening slots for City & Colour and Ron Sexsmith.
In 2016, Menzie was a finalist in CBC’s annual Searchlight competition on the back of his breakout single, “Kenya,” which then spent two weeks at number one on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20 leading up to the release of his 2016 EP Adolescent Nature.
His 2018 release As the Clock Rewinds – a collection of stripped-down and reimagined cuts from Adolescent Nature – garnered him a nomination for Album of the Year at the 2019 East Coast Music Awards, and a nomination for Contemporary Vocalist of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards that same year. The record further showcased his artistry and cemented his status as an undeniable talent.
In May of 2020, Menzie released his most eclectic and ambitious effort to date. His first full length album titled “Lost in Dreams”, a creative journey down that leads down many paths. Some of forthright, earnest folk music anchored by organic instrumentation and his unmistakable vocal stylings. And others, into more abstract and ethereal territory – lush soundscapes defined by digital flourishes and off-kilter production. This wide-ranging album landed Menzie multiple award nominations, and he was awarded Songwriter of the Year, Solo Recording of the Year and Entertainer of the Year at the 2021 Music PEI Awards.
