Meet Dylan Matthew

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dylan Matthew.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Dylan. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I’ve always been inspired by music, and it’s always been a massive part of my life. I started playing piano and singing at a very young age but didn’t realize it was what I wanted to do as a career until I was 17. Once I made that decision, I’ve never had a backup plan.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The music industry will never be a smooth road haha. Everyone attempting to make it in this realm is 1 in 1,000,000 other people who are just as talented. It’s a mix between luck, connections, and how much drive you have. Being the hardest worker will 99% of the time get you further than being the most talented.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I am mostly a songwriter/vocalist, but I also engineer all my own music, produce some, and play a few instruments. I’m very proud of a lot of the music I’ve written for myself and for others, but I’m mostly proud of the music I’ve written that isn’t released yet. I think what sets me apart from others is striving to stay out of a genre box and incorporating mixes of all the genres I love into one. That’s what gives my music a different sound than the norm.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I would have prioritized making the music I wanted to make rather than what I thought people wanted to hear. I have a few songs that are not me at all and wish I would have had this knowledge then. But you live and you learn!
