Dylan Hepner

Guitar, Piano, Banjo, Mandolin, Voice

Dylan Hepner, lead singer & multi-instrumentalist for Hepner's Rebellion, hails from Maryland and has been called one of the mid-Atlantic's most talented rising performers. An electric guitarist at heart who has also mastered mandolin, dobro and acoustic guitar, Hepner's music is steeped in Americana, blues and bluegrass. Hepner, with or without his Rebellion, blends old roots influences with modern rock sensibilities to create up-tempo and feel good performances, with a deep repertoire of songs and dynamic vocal accompaniment.

Dylan's accessible sound has lent itself to performance spaces as varied as the Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, PA; DuPont Hotel in Wilmington, DE; MilkBoy in Philadelphia, PA; the Kennett Flash in Kennett, PA; Club 66 in Edgewood, MD; Mispillion Brewery in Milford, DE; weddings, cocktail hours, baby showers, packed bar gigs, and everything in between. Having opened for national touring artists like John Eddie, Cris Jacobs, Andy Frasco, The Kitchen Dwellers, JD Wilkes & more, Hepner has proven he's got the chops to continue his rise in the greater Philadelphia area and beyond.
