Dylan Walshe (from the album All Manner of Ways available as a self-release)
The bitterness of Guiness Stout that gives the liquid thickness, the words of Dylan Walshe bear a heartiness of tone, providing a deep soul-search for both author and listener. The ale and the songman share a point of origin, both starting out in Dublin, Ireland, each leaving home to take on the world, Dylan Walshe landing in Tennessee, recording his recent release All Manner of Ways in his new base of East Nashville. Dylan finds himself ‘close to blind faith’ as he grips the story with the same determination as the steadily rising sonics of “Cut It Down” while he views both sides of the coin in “Luck is the Beggar, Luck is a King”. All Manner of Ways lives darker days in “Same Old Prayer” joined by James Fearnley of The Pogues, the accordion player returning when Dylan Walshe nostalgically hints at home with a wistful Irish lilt to the melody that glides through “Where Dublin Meets Wicklow”.
A brotherhood of Irish music gathers around Dylan Walshe. He played his first gig in his new home of Nashville with Spider Stacy of The Pogues on St. Patrick’s Day at Music City’s Nashville Palace, meeting Flogging Molly and joining the band on the Irish Punk band’s music cruise through the Bahamas as well their 2017 tour alongside The White Buffalo. Lush strings and heavy drumbeats lap at the thick bass rhythm that flows underneath “At Sea” as All Manner of Ways moodily points a finger in “Blind is Blind”, sinking deeper into somber confessions for “Ruined” as Dylan Walshe twirls strings and beats around “Death Dance”.
