Doors 7pm. Show 8pm. $7 ADV $10 DOS. Born and raised in Wilmington, NC, Dylan is a fifth generation musician whose musical heritage includes traditional Appalachian and Celtic roots. Dylan spent some of her childhood traveling around North Carolina with her parents, who performed old-time music and folk songs written by her mother, Karen. Dylan began studying classical piano at age seven with Mary Paterson who inspired her to pursue her musical dreams from an early age. Dylan continued her studies through late high school and college with one of North Carolina's finest classical piano performers, Domonique Launey. Dylan also credits her favorite composers Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, and Chopin (to name a few) as some of her greatest teachers and inspirations. Dylan's first album, "Pericardium," was released March 13th, 2013. It is a selection of songs written from the heart over the previous five years. She currently studies voice with the incomparable Marina De Ratmiroff. Dylan's music is an original blend of rock-opera-pop, or rock popera, with a strong base of classical elements. She has scored several short films and just finished scoring her first feature film, "Don't Know Yet," written, produced, and directed by her father, Terry. Dylan was excited to perform her original song, "Carry On," with world-renowned composer and performer, DBR (Daniel Bernard Roumain) at Kenan Auditorium September 15th, 2012. She thanks the brilliant DBR for guiding her through a new version of this song, which he accompanied on the violin. Dylan's music has been reviewed by Karmic Fury Records as a "blend of theatrical, rock opera, classical, a sprinkling of pop, and a whole lot of "wow" thrown inLinehan's voice can go from a subtle whisper to operatic bellowing within a single phrase, all while her hands deftly navigate the keyboard. Her piano playing is exceptional, and it's wonderful to see a singer this good not sacrificing her musicianship for the sake of vocals. Linehan's music is pure jaw-dropping magic."

"Linehan was incredible, truly captivating the audience from her first song to her last. She launched into a style of music that could only be described as a blend of theatrical, rock opera, classical, a sprinkling of pop, and a whole lot of “wow” thrown in. These were original songs that didn’t sound like anything we’ve heard before, and that excites us to no end because it just doesn’t happen very often. Linehan’s voice can go from a subtle whisper to operatic bellowing within a single phrase, all while her hands deftly navigate the keyboard. Her piano playing is exceptional, and it’s wonderful to see a singer this good not sacrificing her musicianship for the sake of vocals. Linehan’s music is pure jaw-dropping magic."
