New Signing Dylan Dunlap Shares “Seriously”; Watch The Official Music Video Here

Nettwerk Records is excited to announce the signing of Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Dunlap.
At age 6, Dylan taught himself piano to partake in a grade school talent show. At age 11, he picked up a copy of Pro Tools and crafted instrumental compositions “like time capsules.” As a teen, Dylan left the prestigious Berklee College of Music to get a head start on his music career and started busking. Inspired by the likes of Coldplay and Mumford & Sons, he simultaneously fashioned a singular style, infusing cinematic scope and alternative eloquence into power pop.
Over the last two years, he supported OneRepublic at the sold-out Stadium of Fire event in Provo, UT while releasing his first-ever original “Microphones & Lights,” toured across the US and the UK, dropped his debut EP Things I Can’t Explain and demonstrated a versatile songwriting prowess, writing with artists across country, hip-hop, pop, and electronic genres. Most recently, Dylan released what would become his breakout single, “If That’s Alright.” Dylan has quietly amassed over 20 million streams and is currently recording new music for the follow-up EP to be released via Nettwerk Records. The first single “Seriously” is an anthemic, empowering pop track about embracing the people, places, and things in life that can be taken for granted. “Seriously” shines a light on Dylan’s personal journey with iridescent keys, a luminous refrain, and confessional lyrics.
“’Seriously’ was without a doubt the most challenging one to write. For three weeks straight, I word vomited what felt like a novel in my Notes app about what I would want to tell myself if I was on my deathbed. Sounds serious, but that’s the irony as my one ‘takeaway’ would be that I probably took things too seriously. My writing process can be so unpredictable sometimes, but that’s the beauty in choosing to believe that the words will come out when they’re ready to,” says Dylan.
Directed by Jensen Vinca and Lindsay Sunada (also known as SCOUT), the video is filmed in and around Dylan’s hometown of Los Angeles.
On top of his artist pursuits, Dylan has put in countless hours of work to raise awareness around mental health. In this mission, Dylan received the “Fighting Stigma Rising Star” award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness and has partnered with Global Citizen, Autism Rocks, LA’s Children Hospital, and many other organizations.
On Tuesday, August 18 at 6PM PT, Dylan will go live answering questions, playing a couple of songs, and just generally interacting with the fans. Watch on Instagram HERE.
