About

About me

Inspired by the likes of Lady GaGa, Michael Jackson, Prince and David Bowie, Dylan is a theatrical pop artist who prides himself on his versatile vocal style. Dylan is a fierce showman whose performance is always described as dramatic and outrageous. His song writing is partly based on reality and partly based on his wild imagination.

Not only is Dylan a performer, he also vocal directed The Illawarra Youth Arts Projects’ production of Camp Rock. He has worked with Musical Director Tim Davis from the hit TV series Glee and has done workshops with internationally acclaimed directors, producers and choreographers.

Dylan has undertaken singing, songwriting, acting and dancing courses run by the Australian Institute of Performing Arts in Sydney and Dream Inc. in Melbourne. Whilst in Los Angeles, he attended courses at Young Actors Space, Millennium, and the International Dance Academy.

Over the past few years Dylan has been mentored by and worked alongside Ritchie Neville (5IVE), Bec (BJ) Caruana, Tania Doko (Bachelor Girl), Sean Carey (Thirsty Merc), Cameron McGlinchey (Rogue Traders), Sven Tydeman, Ash Maklad, Edward Said and Michael Parisi.

Performance work

Dylan’s performance credits include the Australian Youth Choir (NIYPAA), The Voice, X Factor, Guy Sebastian’s Carols in the City, The Sydney Royal Easter Show, Southern Stars, ISER Touring Ensemble, Katie Noonan’s Vanguard Tour, the Australian Institute of Music’s Contemporary Showcase “A Night at the Grammys”, and Carols in the Domain.

While in the US, Dylan performed at prestigious venues that include but not limited to Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farm, Winter Wonderland and Disneyland.

In July 2011, Dylan was elected a Full Writer Member to the Australian Performing Right Association Limited (APRA).

In March 2012, Dylan’s single, “Invisible”, was a semifinalist in the International Songwriting Competition based out of Nashville, TN. “Invisible” was also the theme song for Red Undies Week, 2013, raising awareness of Kidney Disease.

Recently, Dylan has been announced as a nominee at 2016’s Australian Independent Music Awards and has proven to be a YouTube success hitting over 100,000 views for his single “Invisible” under his old alias, Lord Phoenix.

Finances/Costs

As an independent artist producing high quality music requires time and money. Seeing as I am not backed by a major record label, I am utilizing Kickstarter as the platform to help me cover costs of:

• Recording / Studio

• Mixing / Mastering / Production

• Postage & Handling

• Marketing / Online Distribution

(If the target is exceeded, then the extra funds will be contributed to Videos, Promotion and touring)

 

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter is one of the best platforms for independent artists to promote their projects, but there is still a possibility that I may not be able to fund this EP if I don't reach my ideal goal!

Therefore, I NEED TO REACH 100% of my goal for this project to be successful.

-Due to the creative nature of this project, certain rewards and incentives may take a little longer to produce than others. Therefore, if a reward has not yet been fulfilled, please be patient and rest assure that you will receive your reward as soon as it is ready for shipment.

- Your bank account and credit cards will NOT be charged until the completion of this project, and only if the project is fully funded before the close date.

- Advance CD'S and DIGITAL DOWNLOADS will be distributed prior to the release (only if the project is fully funded)
