It’s hard to imagine that Dylan LeBlanc ever sounded young, even when he was a kid. At the ripe old age of 25, LeBlanc already has one of those lived-in voices that immediately casts him as somebody who has seen it all fall apart so many times, he can’t even pretend anything surprises him anymore. His latest album “Cautionary Tale” (Single Lock Records) is a stunning shot of earthy Americana that variously evokes Neil Young, Jason Isbell and Ryan Adams. LeBlanc is not any sort of “New Dylan,” just Dylan, and well worth catching on the way up – Friday at Durham’s Pinhook.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m., Josh Moore opens an hour later and $12 will get you in. Check thepinhook.com for details.
