Dylan is bringing country music a new vibe and new sound to the non-traditional country we hear today! With three singles and an EP landing on the Itunes Country Charts (“Take It Slow” No.2 on pre-order, “I Can Be That” Top 50, “Pulling Me Back In” Top 50, and “I Can Be That” EP No.35) the future is bright for this young artist.
Dylan brings an exciting and unique performance to his audience by incorporating not only his own music, but 90’s country as well as other genres to reach out to all audiences. Though Dylan is a young artist, he has already sold out several shows in the Midwest!
Dylan is currently in the studio working on his new single “At A Bar” and an upcoming EP. It sure looks like this young artist is off to a great start and continuing to bring his sound to country music!
