With a library of hundreds of original compositions, and over a million streams on Spotify, 23 year old New Jersey native Jared Dylan has certainly been making a name for himself in his home country. He’s expanding his horizons further this year, with a move to Ireland where he will work with Irish musicians and producers, while at the same time releasing music and touring the island.
Jared’s first Irish release, ‘Can’t Stop’, is out this Friday, March 16, ahead of his EP, due this summer.
After a writing session with Paddy Casey at the famous Grouse Lodge Studios, in Westmeath, Jared says,
“I feel inspired in Ireland and I feel like I am finally making the music I’ve always wanted to make.”
He plans to collaborate with even more Irish musicians while making his base in the Emerald Isle.
Dylan’s recent compositions have seen him receive attention from some of the industry’s best writers and producers, with songs mixed and remixed by the likes of Danny Saber, known for his work with Bowie, Madonna, and The Rolling Stones; Carmen Rizzo (Coldplay, Seal, and Alanis Morissette), and The Fonogenics, who’ve worked with Juliette Lewis, Kirs Kristofferson, and Micky Dolenz.
Outside of music, Jared was active from a young age with Pathways For Exceptional Children, a programme which mentors childen with special needs. He started “Pathways Rock” along with the Executive Director, Melinda Jennis, and they formed America’s first ever all-inclusive rock band, which saw young people with and without disabilities join together to make music.
Before commencing studies with the Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program, part of The University Of Miami’s Frost School Of Music, Jared wrote enough original pieces to garner the interest of composer/musician Eric Alexandrakis. In turn Eric introduced Jared to Massachusetts producer Anthony Resta, known for his work with Elton John, Collective Soul, and Duran Duran. This collaboration resulted in Jared Dylan’s first EP, ‘In Panic‘, which combined elements of Brit-pop with 80s power vocals, and string ballads.
‘Can’t Stop’ will be available on all digital platforms from Friday 16 March, and is available to pre-order now from iTunes. You can find Jared Dylan online on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and his official website.
