Rae Porter caught up with Dylan Stone to talk about his upcoming release Everything I’ve Known.

Saturday sees the return of Dylan Stone and his heartfelt Canadian rock ‘n’ roll to the Lucky Bar stage. Celebrating the release of his new EP Everything I’ve Known, his first major release, and joined by west coast indie rockers Morning Show, the night is guaranteed to be one of connectivity and carousing..

For many Dylan Stone needs no real introduction. This hometown favourite must be one of the hardest working musicians in the city. From the folky bluegrass twangs of The Unfaithful Servants, to the honest rock of The Dylan Stone Band, via passion project The Great Divide: Canada’s Tribute to The Band (seriously folks, not to be missed) and numerous solo appearances, chances are you’ve tapped a toe or two at one of his gigs.

Everything I’ve Known features famed producer Colin Stewart (New Pornographers, Yukon Blonde) behind the mixing desk and his sleight of hand is clear in the depth of sound and psychedelic overtones. Stone has toured relentlessly across Canada and the west coast and in this record you can hear the call of the road. He sings of broken hearts and restless spirits, of star crossed lovers tearing across deserted black top. Influences are clear, think Tom Petty, early Ryan Adams and Wilco, yet Stone has his own take on the heartland rock of his heroes, rightfully earning a spot in any dog eared record collection. Lead track ‘Everything I’ve Known’ is the rousing call of a modern day troubadour, whereas the fuzzy fades and garage rock resonance of ‘I’ll Never Walk Away’ show a darker, headier side.

If you like your rock authentic and your beer cold, then join the band and friends for $10 on the door. In the words of Stone himself “let the good times roll”.
