Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist,Steve Dedman, is the leader of the band Plywood Cowboy. His music is “a compelling balance between smart lyrics and dynamically tasty sound” (Grammy-nominated producer, Ira Sakolsky).
Bottle-fed on roots and Americana music, Steve’s songwriting portrays images of love, heartache, humor and life’s hurdles. Plywood Cowboy’s debut album was released in 2016 to welcoming ears and great reviews.
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. Doyle’s musical interpretations lie somewhere within the delta of Roots, Rock, and Jazz – a style that defies classification.
Touring nationally since age 15, Dylan is a seasoned professional, playing with notable musicians Rob Stoner (Bob Dylan, Don Mclean), John Platania (Van Morrison, Natalie Merchant), Ben Cauley (Otis Redding) and Bill Payne (Little Feat).
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.”
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.
He consistently packs houses around the country as is looking forward to the band’s European Debut in 2017.
After performing with Dylan in Memphis, sole surviving band member of the Otis Redding plane crash Ben Cauley said, “Dylan Doyle is like a young, white Jimi Hendrix.”
