Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Dunlap is here with a new feel-good tune titled, ‘Seriously’. The cinematic melodies and feel-good background vocals create this atmosphere of hope that feels like a nice summer day. The pop-infused track with impactful guitars and relatable lyrics make this song a must listen to. The build that is created during the third verse is captivating as it pumps you up for the catchy chorus. His vocals are so powerful and bring the lyrics to life with the way he hits the notes so effortlessly. His style of power pop infused with meaningful lyrics and rock elements reminds me of bands like Cold Play or Imagaine Dragans.
According to his bio, at age 6, he taught himself piano to partake in a grade school talent show. At age 11, he picked up a copy of Pro Tools and crafted instrumental compositions “like time capsules.” As a teen, Dylan left the prestigious Berklee College of Music to get a head start on his music career and started busking in his hometown of Burbank, CA.
Over the last two years, he supported OneRepublic at the sold-out Stadium of Fire event in Provo, UT while releasing his first-ever original “Microphones & Lights,” toured across the US and the UK, dropped his debut EP Things I Can’t Explain and demonstrated a versatile songwriting prowess, writing with artists across country, hip-hop, pop and electronic genres.
Most recently, Dylan released what would become his breakout single, “If That’s Alright.” Dylan has quietly amassed over 20 million streams and is currently recording new music for the follow up EP to be released via Nettwerk Records.
On top of his artist pursuits, Dylan has put in countless hours of work to raise awareness around mental health. In this mission, Dylan received the “Fighting Stigma Rising Star” award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness and has partnered with Global Citizen, Autism Rocks, LA’s Children Hospital, and many other organizations. We need more artists like him and I can’t wait to hear more music. You need this track on your playlist, go ahead, add it. Leave some feedback below or pick your reaction.
