ABOUT DILLON CURRIE
Dillon Currie is a Saskatchewan singer-songwriter and the lead singer, co-lyricist, and formative member of Saskatoon-based rock band, League of Wolves (formerly of Inside Pocket Music via Warner Music Canada). With League of Wolves, Currie has recorded at the renowned Noble Street Studios in Toronto with producer Gavin Brown (Billy Talent, Tragically Hip, Metric), co-producer/writer Maia Davies (Mother Mother, Yukon Blonde) and has toured Canada many times, sharing the stage with notable acts such as The Trews, The Tea Party, Glorious Sons, Yukon Blonde, The Beaches, and The Headstones.
Channeling songwriters like Elliott Smith, Andy Shauf, and Jeff Tweedy, Currie’s debut solo effort, a full-length LP entitled ‘Vines of Time’, is a sharp departure from his more raucous work with League of Wolves, and instead is a beautifully diverse collection of reflective, thought-provoking tales and introspective queries which expose the duality of the human condition. On ‘Vines of Time’, due out September of 2023, Currie toils with the difficult relationship between legacy and mortality, reflecting on themes of loss, growth, accountability, reconciliation, self-awareness, and identity. Pairing earnest song writing with gorgeous melodic delivery, the result is a collection of beautifully crafted narratives which meld familiar tales of the past, the present, and the future into one gripping existential crisis.
Born and raised in Maple Creek, SK, Dillon now lives in Swift Current with his partner, Kayla, his son, Enver (8), and his daughter, Rooney (3). After releasing his first solo single in December of 2020, Dillon has since released two more singles which will be featured on his upcoming record. Dillon is a former Junior A hockey player and proud Bonnyville Pontiacs alumni (AJHL), as well as a University of Saskatchewan graduate. Aside from his music career, Currie is passionate about his work as Community Connector with SaskAbilities—Swift Current where he works to connect youth and adults experiencing disability with their community through volunteerism and employment opportunities.

Dillon Currie releases gripping 10-song LP 'Vines of Time"
July 27, 2023
Saskatchewan songwriter and League of Wolves frontman Dillon Currie is proud to announce the upcoming independent release of his debut solo LP, 'Vines of Time', on September 8, 2023.
Featuring 10 intimate and dynamic tracks crafted between 2020 and 2022, 'Vines of Time' is a beautifully diverse collection of reflective, thought-provoking tales and introspective queries which expose the duality of the human condition. Pairing earnest song writing with gorgeous melodic delivery, Currie addresses his own complicated relationship with both legacy and mortality by weaving personal tales into a fictional landscape. The result is a collection of beautifully crafted narratives which meld difficult yet familiar tales of the past, the present, and the future into one gripping existential crisis.
Channeling song writing heroes like Elliott Smith, Andy Shauf, Andy Hull, and Jeff Tweedy, ‘Vines of Time’ is a significant departure from Currie’s earlier rock n’ roll roots with League of Wolves. On his debut solo effort, we are introduced to an alert and mindful lyricist, scratching the sonic edges of folk, alternative, and rock and binding them like clay. Thematically, ‘Vines of Time’ is a concept record which takes the listener on an expansive journey from the humble, naïve beginnings of a small-town prairie kid on ‘In My Town’ and follows them as they navigate through life’s many complex and difficult challenges. Featuring interwoven tales of love, loss, near-death experiences, trauma, poverty, regret, doubt, and accountability, the conclusion, and overarching theme of the record, becomes one of hope. Hope that, no matter the shortcomings of our pasts, that there is more to the story yet to be written if we choose.
