At the age of 24, New Jersey native Jared Dylan has already made a name for himself, having amassed a library of hundreds of original compositions and millions of streams on Spotify. His recent work has garnered the attention of some of the industry’s most notable writers and producers, having songs mixed and remixed by talents such as Danny Saber (David Bowie, Madonna, The Rolling Stones), Carmen Rizzo (Coldplay, Seal, Alanis Morissette), and Ran Pink of Fonogenic Studios (Juliette Lewis, Kris Kristofferson, Micky Dolenz).
Before leaving for college at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, Jared wrote enough original music to pique the interest of a composer/producer/musician, Anthony Resta (best known for his work with Elton John, Collective Soul, and Duran Duran). This resulted in Jared’s first EP, In Panic, which packed a musical punch with elements of Brit-pop, the 80s driven vocals, and string ballads. The release of the EP and the tracks’ accompanying videos garnered Jared a strong YouTube following.
The Universe really is one big wank
During his time at the University of Miami, Jared released several singles, earning him opening slots for artists such as Andy Grammer and We The Kings as well as national radio play; most notably on Radio Disney.
If you can’t be good, be great. Jared’s mantra took him to Ireland in 2018 where he spent the year touring and collaborating with Irish musicians and producers on a documentary, ‘Experiencing Music’, being produced by Zinc Media (Bob Geldof’s production company); while also putting the final touches on his pending EP, Consequence, and beginning his follow up full length, Silly Love Songs.
Following a writing session with Paddy Casey at the historic Grouse Lodge Studios, Jared says, “I feel inspired in Ireland and I feel like I am finally making the music I’ve always wanted to make.”
2019 is expected to be a year full of new music and exciting performances as Jared returns home to promote his latest creation, the Consequence EP and this is his second single taken from that, ‘Double Time’.
