“His voice is so strong and expressive, at once so holy and damned, it could shake heaven and hell simultaneously. This suggests the old soul of a true roots artist” – No Depression
Dylan Walshe is an Irish musician from the southeastern coast of Dublin. He is known for his lyrical songwriting, robust guitar-playing and warm, unique vocal style.
“Dylan Walshe has taken up the reins from the likes of Bob Dylan & Townes Van Zandt, with poignant, poetic lyrics & memorable tunes” – The Irish Edition
Typically touring internationally as a solo acoustic performer, Dylan’s music is steeped in the traditions of Folk, Irish/Celtic, Blues, Singer-songwriter, One-man band & Roots Music, but never bound by those traditions. Dylan has a recent history of pushing boundaries as a solo acoustic performer, appearing on bills & touring with a wide range of bands & genres, such as Punk, Hardcore Ska & even Heavy Metal.
Armed with his own soulful originals, Dylan also sings traditional songs of the working classes & reinterprets a wide spectrum of songs in his own inimitable style.
After spending his 20s splitting his time between London & Ireland, Dylan now resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
Most recently, as well as headlining tours throughout much of Europe & the U.S., Dylan toured with Flogging Molly & The White Buffalo in 2017. In 2018, Dylan opened for Billy Bob Thornton & The Boxmasters on their Maine dates. Dylan also recorded with James Fearnley of The Pogues in 2018. In 2019, Dylan toured with the Swedish Heavy Metal band Avatar & the Canadian Celtic Punk band The Mahones.
“Dylan gets nods from the likes of Christy Moore, gifted & talented, he’s the real deal” – RTE Radio 1
