ABOUT THE ARTIST
Spanish Fork, UT
Dylan Clough is a horseman, rambler, folklore enthusiast, and singer-songwriter, calling no place home but hailing from Utah. His sound is raw, gritty, and as real as dirt beneath boots, taking the listener from sagebrush plains and red rock plateaus to Rocky Mountain pines and bluebell meadows. Bandcamp advises that Clough is “best listened to alone by [the] fireside and paired with bourbon.” He writes blues/folk-inspired tunes that capture the spirit and sound of the American West.
