Southern born, Northern raised , Dylan Doyle has been steeped in everything from Bob Dylan, Wes Montgomery, and Bill Withers to John Prine, Jimi Hendrix, and The Band. From this comes a unique musical interpretation that lies somewhere within the delta of Roots, Rock, and Jazz, giving him a style that defies classification.
Touring nationally since age 15, Dylan became a seasoned professional at a very young age. He has played with such notable musicians Rob Stoner (Bob Dylan, Don Mclean), John Platania (Van Morrison, Natalie Merchant), Ben Cauley (Otis Redding) and Bill Payne (Little Feat). Stoner called Dylan one of the most prodigious players he has known with abundant natural talent. John Platania has referred to Dylan as “The Future.” Ben Cauley, after playing with Dylan in Memphis said, “Dylan Doyle sounds like a young Jimi Hendrix.” In the words of Bill Payne upon sharing the stage, “Music is a conversation. Dylan spoke beautifully and was listening to the musicians around him. His play was imaginative and original.”
Attesting to Dylan’s versatility, Dylan has played the King Biscuit Blues Festival three consecutive years as well headlining the Grateful Garcia Gathering, the largest Grateful Dead festival in the Midwest.
Dylan consistently packs houses around Europe and the United States.
“As we say in the the south, 'this boy has the real goods'.”
Butch Dener - Manager of 'The Band'
"It is with great pleasure I put the spotlight on a wonderful musician, Dylan Doyle. Dylan is only eighteen, but his abilities as a guitarist go well beyond those years.There truly must be something in the water in Upstate New York. Dylan joined the group Minstrel (Connor Kennedy, Lee Falco, Will Bryant, and Brandon Moss) and me last September at The Falcon in Marlboro, NY. He sat in on Little Feat’s “Dixie Chicken” that evening. His playing was flawless and inventive. Live performance is not about only playing a song but being aware of the conversation and flow of those you’re playing with. He spoke beautifully and was listening to what was going on around him. His musicianship was impressive. I wish him the very best on the journey he’s undertaking as a songwriter and leader of his own band. I look forward to our next conversation."
