Dylan Patrick Ward

Don't let his roughish good-looks fool you. Dylan Patrick Ward is a sensitive boy. Hailing from Vermont's Dirty South, he started self-recording and releasing lofi Indie-Folk albums from his childhood bedroom at his parent's house in 2020. Now he plays anywhere he can and continues to write darkly comical, melodic songs about down-on-their-luck loveable losers that owe a debt to the Mountain Goats, John Prine, George Saunders and The Simpsons. He's opened for acclaimed folk singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey who said "...he's funny. He's also as serious as an axe-handle."
