How lucky am I to have previewed Dylan LeBlanc's upcoming album, Pauper's Field?! I was falling in love with the album when I was only halfway through! It is amazing!!! No wonder this young musician from Louisiana is quickly garnering a lot of media attention well before the album release!
The first time I came across his music and mentioned it on this blog, my initial reaction was...
It was clear to me when I first heard "If Time Was for Wasting" that I wanted to hear more from him. Check it out here:
As I listen to the collective songs on Pauper's Field, the reasons why I want more, are obvious.
It's a masterful blend of melodic guitar, coupled with his original storytelling lyrics and a voice that cuts to the chase and touches something inside you. There's a sense of intimacy when you get lost in the beauty of these songs. This album is penetrating. It will move you.
I don't even know how I can choose 3 best tracks on here. It's ALL incredible and I can't get enough of it. So, this will have to be my FIRST album review without a top tracks listing. Yeah...it's that good!
The album releases in just 3 days, but you can go HERE... preview of all twelve songs... and then GET THIS ALBUM!
