Dylan first began playing the guitar when he was ten years old after receiving an acoustic guitar as a birthday gift.
After quickly realizing that music was his outlet, Dylan began publicly performing in a number of musical groups and as a solo artist at local hometown events and in various churches. By the time he was fifteen, Dylan was writing and recording his own songs and quickly being recognized for his unique sound.
During his high school career, Dylan attended the SC Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities where he studied classical guitar. Dylan’s most recent attributions have been leading worship at Springwell, his home church in Taylors, SC, as well as making a name for himself in local venues throughout the southeast. Dylan released his debut album “So Much to Say” in August of 2012 featuring his original work. In 2013, Dylan auditioned for FOX’s American Idol where he became a contestant in the “Hollywood Round” of the show’s competition.
In April of 2013, Dylan released his first music video, bringing life to his song “Waiting for You.” Dylan released his second album, “Take Me Higher” in June 2013. The album is currently available on iTunes. In November of 2013, Dylan was honored by the Artist Music Guild with two Heritage Awards for New Artist of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. In late 2014, Dylan was selected to appear on NBC’s “The Voice.”
