      On Dylan LeBlanc's debut album, ..Paupers Field.., a lost world is brought to life - both in the carefully sculpted songs and rich well of country soul from which those songs
      emerge. Rough Trade is excited to release Dylan’s album on August 24th, 2010.....Although the Golden era of Alabama's fabled Muscle Shoals sound had passed by the
      time Dylan was born in 1990, his ancestral roots and family background connected him
      to one of the most significant sources in the rich tapestry of American music. His father's
      position as a Muscle Shoals session player and songwriter meant that early in life Dylan
      was privy to the sights and sounds of an unvarnished, vanishing epoch and such
      legends as Spooner Oldham. "I grew up around a lot of the session players…when I was
      11 or 12, I would watch and ask a lot of questions, so for me it was like going to music
      college," is how the tall, gentle voiced, lank haired Shreveport, Louisiana native
      remembers it. "It seemed like a much simpler world - it was romantic to me the way
      everyone sat in a circle and “took it from the top”. They just played and hit the record
      button. That’s the path I followed when I made this album."....Dylan expands…"for me music is about getting together with a group of people who
      feel like family - you create a bond, feeding off each other. Just a look or a hand
      gesture and they know what you’re talking about." Dylan's progress was natural,
      organic - learning the ropes as a young sideman helped define his own worldview and
      artistry through his teens....."My first hand influences are all interesting, but I've always been a loner when it comes
      to music. I had the opportunity to, and did my own thing and whoever wanted to join in
      was welcome to. I started picking on my 7th birthday when my dad bought me a
      guitar, and I started writing when I was 11 or 12." Although he dismisses his early songs as
      "not very good", Dylan's early learning served him well. The songs on this debut are
      beautifully nurtured, gently astonishing, stop you in your tracks reveries - gilded with
      strings, smokey organ lines, and keening pedal steel.....Despite his age, Dylan's worn yearning voice already has the mark of aged experience.
      Neither the feel nor sound of the album, nor the haunted ghost summoning songs he
      has written, can be faked. “If Time Was For Wasting” seems to be wrenched from the
      heart of ever-present currents in Deep South life - where the pull of the past is
      unavoidable. "Admittedly I was drinking a good bit myself, and when I wrote the song I
      was thinking about an arrogant ignorant man and the woman he was with. It has a lot
      to do with the culture around here. I pictured a man walking into a room where he lives
      with an angry wife.”....Heritage springs up everywhere on ..Paupers Field... Ghosts and demons emerge from the
      mist in compositions featuring archetypal characters such as “Emma Hartley” and “The
      Outlaw Billy John”.....Like much great art, Dylan's work is often rooted in pain and anxiety. "Eccentricity runs in
      my family, and all the men seem to die very young and all the women live to be very
      old." His great great-great Grandfather shot a notorious local bandit, and was in turn
      slain in an ambush. This killing took place in Palestine, Texas in the early 1900s - a time
      and place which fits right in with the album's sepia mood. "There were concerns when I
      was growing up about how things might turn out, says Dylan carefully. "I wrote music
      because it made me feel better. I used to get these feelings that would come over me
      so strong; I felt I was sinking into darkness, like staring out of a large hole in the ground. It
      scared me and I struggled daily trying to be content in life. In a lot of ways I still do.”....His songs - ominously dark yet tenderly appraising emotions to find light and balm -
      don't just open up a world and his personal feelings and experience, they provide their
      creator with a valuable lifeline. "It helps me…I'd be a lot darker if I didn't write and it’s
      almost like playing God writing a song." It’s a telling comment from the usually modest
      and soft-spoken LeBlanc. He is not the sort of performer to shout about his arrival or
      proclaim his talent from the rooftops. Nonetheless, the seamlessly organic and selfproduced
      ..Paupers Field.. presents a fully formed total artist and this record speaks for
      itself. LeBlanc's is a voice from the present connected to the past, one sure to outlast
      passing trends and fads. Soul deep....."Its funny I never thought anyone would take an interest in what I do, so I had the
      freedom to sound natural with folks I know and love and trust. Everything was basically
      recorded live, so when we play it live, it’s about trying to give people a little of that
      same feeling. We mean what we say and do what we feel. I think we did that very well
      on this record."....Ain't that the truth.
