Canadian blues musician Dylan Farrell hits the historic King Eddy stage Friday, June 2 for the release of his debut album Mississippi Circle, a collection of live-off-the-floor tracks recorded in Memphis. He’ll be joined by Calgary blues rock virtuoso Marcus Trummer.
About Dylan Farrell
Dylan Farrell is a born musician whose experience has led him to gain an artistic depth that most artists only aspire to. As a singer-songwriter he has the ability to tell vivid weighted stories with a few simple words, not to be rivalled by his guitar playing which displays a level emotional maturity and a technical depth and dexterity that is truly remarkable for someone of his age.
Originally from New Brunswick, Dylan began his professional career playing in his father’s band in Saint John at the age of 15. Upon moving to Edmonton in 2012, he almost instantly became a fixture in the city’s thriving roots and blues scene, lending his consummate skill as a sideman to several acts, and hosting weekly blues jams at local venues. Having solidified a sterling reputation through these side projects, Dylan is now placing his focus on his own musical voice. With his band, the Dylan Farrell Band, he is a two-time winner of the Memphis Bound Blues Challenge, and a semi finalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee. While in Memphis in 2018 Dylan set out to record an album at Ardent Studios, which has been graced by the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top, and BB King.
In June of 2023, Dylan will release his debut full length record Mississippi Circle which is a collection of ten tracks from the live-off-the-floor recording done in Memphis in 2018 along side producer Brian Moncarz. The project captures the soul of Memphis and is a throwback to how records were made in the 60’s and 70’s.
About Marcus Trummer
Marcus Trummer weaves southern soul, blues, and roots rock into a modern sound steeped in tradition that Trummer calls “rock and soul”. Dubbed “a precocious guitarist whose vocals possess a wise-beyond-his-years weariness” by the Calgary Herald, Trummer has built a reputation as a compelling live performer on the back of playing numerous shows. Trummer’s songwriting ability has also earned him recognition with his latest release, Running on My Own, receiving Blues Recording of the Year at the 2022 YYC Music Awards. With a full-length album on the way for 2023, Trummer continues to establish his place as a notable emerging Canadian artist.
