Never miss another 'Dylan LeBlanc' show
Singer-songwriter from Louisiana. With reflective, mournful songs that belied his age, critics hailed the young singer; The Guardian noted that LeBlanc was “favourably compared with Harvest-era Neil Young and country-folk breakouts Fleet Foxes.”
After the success of his first two albums, LeBlanc slipped into a blur of booze and self-doubt. At just 23-years-old, Dylan came home to Muscle Shoals, Alabama to write a new life for himself. In between the moments of clarity and a few familiar falls, he wrote 'Cautionary Tale': a collection of shimmering, arresting songs with the same haunting vocals that caught the attention of Lucinda Williams and Bruce Springsteen, now with a sharpened edge honed by hastened maturity.

Karima has toured the UK and Europe extensively with her captivating performances – She has graced the major stages supporting such artists as Paul Simon/ The Stereophonics / Jack Savoretti / Patti Smith and Amy Winehouse
Having begun playing drums at 13, Karima Francis self-taught guitar and songwriting at the age of 18. Not long after, her legendary debut The Author was released on independent record label Kitchenware Records, produced by the gifted Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Paulo Nutini). She was named as a number one act to watch in 2009 by the Observer. The Author effortlessly found common ground with Francis’s audiences. It’s a song-driven album, entwined with melodic textures and innovative musical progressions. This emotionally rich album was met with critical acclaim for both her vocals and songwriting. Francis’s performance on BBC’s iconic music show ‘Later with Jools Holland’ in 2010, was the icing on the cake for the Author’s success.
In 2012 Francis returned with her second album ‘The Remedy’ produced by Flood (U2, PJ Harvey, Smashing Pumpkins). Prior to the release, Francis spent some time in LA where she wrote her most crowd-pleasing single ‘Wherever I go’ with the likes of Linda Perry. Released on Vertigo records, the Remedy’s betterment proved just how prolific Francis is as an artist.
Karima Francis self-released her third album ‘Black’ in 2015 produced by Dan Austin [Doves / Cherry Ghost / Kid Wave]. Black’s ambient sounds went hand in hand with Francis’s astonishing vocals.
Francis is now experimenting with new sonics and wider musical arrangements, whilst in focus on production and writing her fourth album, making us all eager of what's yet to come…
‘Songs will always be the passion and expression in my work but I’m exploring the sounds and sonic further now and it feels like I am working with a new canvas, some of the more traditional framings have been expanded’ - Karima Francis '17
