July 15, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Dunlap returns with the heartfelt anthem “Still Here.” For this track,Dunlap decided to take a studio-forward, band-driven approach and enlisted famed mixer Michael Brauer, the very person who mixed Parachutes by Coldplay, as well as music by John Mayer, Dean Lewis, and James Bay. “Still Here” is the first single released from this new batch of songs. On “Still Here,” Dunlap’s humble lyrics and honest storytelling shine throughout the track. His soaring vocals and elevated production are reminiscent of timeless, feel-good pop music.
Dunlap shares, “It’s a privilege to begin my debut album phase with “Still Here” and shed light on a very real & scary panic attack that happened while driving on the 405-freeway last year. I hope it serves as a warm & inviting “thank you” to anybody out there that’s ever shown up for somebody despite having a mental health condition. (also fun fact: in the final verse I sing “you’re beauty, I’m the beast” and I actually was the beast in my middle school theater production!)”
