Singer-Songwriter Dylan Dunlap Announces Tour Dates With Jordan Searcy
August 25, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Dunlap will join 21-year old singer-songwriter Jordan Searcy on a handful of west coast dates, starting August 30 in Phoenix, AZ.
Dylan has wasted no time making 2021 his year; with the release of his Soldier On EP in February, the single “Follow My Echo” landed placements on over 28 New Music Friday Playlists across the globe and garnered rave reviews from places such as MTV who stated; “This song deserves to soundtrack a movie, and I will firmly stand by this.”
As a kid, Dylan immediately gravitated towards music. He went from playing the piano to learning Pro Tools and cooking up instrumental compositions. Dylan dipped out of Berklee College of Music to busk around his native Burbank, CA. Developing a singular style, he drew on inspirations as diverse as Coldplay, Mumford & Sons, and Finding Nemo. Between sharing the stage with OneRepublic at the sold-out Stadium of Fire event in Provo, UT, he packed shows throughout the United States and the UK. Following the release of two EPs – Things I Can’t Explain and Soldier On – Dylan has made significant strides claiming 40 million-plus combined Spotify streams. At the same time, he’s tirelessly championed positive mental health. The National Alliance on Mental Illness recognized him with its “Fighting Stigma Rising Star” award. At the same time, he’s collaborated with various organizations such as To Write Love On Her Arms, Sound Mind Live, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, and more. Evolving with each step, Dylan only continued to record.
Dylan has spent the last couple of months releasing new music from his forthcoming 2022 EP (details TBA), and his vulnerability and self-awareness are best showcased on “Get More Rest.” About the track, Dylan says: “This song took a lot out of me to pursue. I lost my mind last summer waking up every single day to so much hatred in the world. The internet can be a dangerous place to navigate, and it disappoints me to know that what was once a tool to build human connection has become a weapon to dehumanize others. I thought that by waking up earlier than everybody else, I’d be able to experience some stillness and maybe get ahead of it all before it triggered my anxiety & depression. Unfortunately, it just harmed my mental health even more.”
