"He's funny. He's also as serious as an ax handle." - Peter Mulvey
Dylan Patrick Ward is a folk misfit from Vermont's dirty south. Equal parts compassionate and irreverent, his songs delve into the minds and lives of oddballs, outcasts, misfits and people on the brink.
He has a sharp sense of humor and an instinctive sympathy for the underdog, and has been compared to great musical humorists like John Prine and Randy Newman, as well as indie-rock/antifolk legends like the Mountain Goats and Paul Baribeau.
Since arriving on the scene in 2021, he's become increasingly respected as a writer and performer, and has shared the stage with beloved acts like Bill Callahan, Peter Mulvey, Jeffrey Lewis, Guy Davis, Michael Schneewais and others.
In 2023 he teamed up with multi-instrumentalists Nate Goyette and Johnny Gifford to form Dylan Patrick Ward and the Loveable Losers. The Losers’ first album, The Porch Collapses, is set to be released in the Summer of 2024.
