Harbourfront’s new Backstage Pass Series offers a unique format with the entire show, audience included, happening on the stage. Seating will be cabaret style in a cozy and interactive setting with a panoramic view of the theatre in the background. Featuring a number of musical genres, expect to see some new faces to Harbourfront as well as some past artists returning for this series.
With his compelling, sprawling vocal range, a striking mix of familiar yet sophisticated musical lines and adept guitar skills, Dylan Menzie is quickly becoming one of Prince Edward Island’s prime exports. Hailing from Belle River, PEI, Menzie has been compared to Joel Plaskett and was highly praised by Canadian singer-songwriter, Ron Sexmith, when he opened for Sexsmith at the PEI Jazz n’ Blues Festival, 2014.
His recently released sophomore album, Adolescent Nature (2016), recorded with Juno nominated and ECMA award-winning producer Daniel Ledwell, was released on the heels of Menzie’s top 4 placement in the CBC Searchlight Competition. The lead single, “Kenya,” secured Menzie’s high standing in this national, juried competition.
Dylan Menzie appears at the Harbourfront Theatre on Wednesday, July 20, at 7:30 PM.
