The Tens
The Tens
Old-Soul Rock'n'Roll from Los Angeles, CA

Following the tradition of great acts before them, The Tens cut their musical teeth on the streets. Beginning as a busking band, the group spent its formative years refining their raw, funky, soul sound on the corners of L.A.’s most iconic intersections. Since then, they have moved the show indoors, becoming one of the city’s most prolific gigging bands, attracting devout fans along the way.

In 2016, The Tens embarked on a national tour that culminated in the recording of their eponymous debut album, cut live and direct to vinyl at Welcome to 1979 studios in Nashville, TN.

Currently, The Tens can be found playing bars, breweries and venues up and down the West Coast including, San Diego, Santa Barbara, San Jose and San Francisco. In addition, the group hosts weekly and monthly residencies throughout Los Angeles.

Dylan Lancaster writes songs.

His songs remind you that rock is, at its most pure and basic, just a person and a guitar, a story and some questions. He cut his teeth in Kalamazoo, where he played in country-rock bands alongside local punk outfits, listened to Springsteen records on repeat, and lived across the street from a graveyard. Now he's in Nashville, singing in dive-y karaoke bars and penning songs that sound like elegies for a past self, scribbled somewhere between the dusty tales of Outlaw Country and the searing uplift of a Neil Young guitar solo.

His debut EP, due out in 2017, is a kind of patchwork of 60s American poetry, faded record store finds, and sharp guitar playing. It's the sound of a songwriter wading through his wide influences, taking what he needs, fashioning what he can't find.

But what's important in all this—what's pure and basic—is that Dylan Lancaster writes songs.
