Prince Edward Island singer-songwriter Dylan Menzie is currently touring Western Canada. Menzie has been compared to Joel Plaskett, and praised by Ron Sexsmith when he opened for Sexsmith in 2014. His breakout single “Kenya” —released in 2015 from his then upcoming sophomore album Adolescent Nature —spent eight weeks on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20, with two of those weeks being at number one. In 2016, he placed in the top-four of CBC’s Searchlight Competition.
Dylan Menzie has already played Edmonton Folk Festival supporting City and Colour this past weekend, as well as Kamloops’ Music in the Park yesterday. See the rest of the dates for his Western tour below or on his website, as well as his upcoming Eastern Canada dates in the fall.

I’m Shayla, and I was born in Saskatoon but moved to Halifax in 2013 for University, and since decided to stay here for a while. I recently received a Bachelor of Design, after studying photography for a year or two as well. I love everything about music and how it has the ability to bring so many people together from across the country and even the world. My passion for music is one of the reasons I moved East to pursue a photography and design career, as I would love to do graphic design and photography within the Canadian music industry.
