The Dylan Project
The musicians in question are PJ Wright (slide and electric guitars, pedal steel), Gerry Conway (drums and percussion), Phil Bond (keys) and Dave Pegg (bass), the singer is Steve Gibbons. As The Dylan Project, they present an exhilarating tribute to the work of arguably the greatest post-war songwriter in the English language.
The Dylan Project is far more than a mere copycat act. The members bring their own distinctive take on the music, Steve Gibbons interprets the lyrics with stylish individuality and, above all, respect for a master writer and performer shines through every word, every note. There is so much to relish in the Dylan Project. For a start there's the laconic and charismatic Steve Gibbons, sounding uncannily like Dylan while retaining his own inimitable vocal style. As well as Steve's homage to Dylan himself, the Project's musicians are equally fine interpreters of the virtuosity of The Band.
