Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Dunlap releases the official music video for “Follow My Echo,” the latest single from his forthcoming EP Soldier On (out February 26 via Nettwerk Records). About a week prior, the single release wasted no time skyrocketing to almost 50K streams, landing placements on over 28 New Music Friday Playlists across the globe, and garnering rave reviews from places such as MTV News who stated; “This song deserves to soundtrack a movie and I will firmly stand by this.” Dylan will be celebrating the release of his forthcoming EP with a Livestream performance for his fans a day prior to its release, February 25th. Stay tuned for details.
The EP, Soldier On, pairs difficult themes with uplifting melodies, showcasing Dylan’s innate ability to craft deeply personal narratives into power pop eloquence. Additionally, he draws inspiration from a lifelong obsession with film. Citing favorites such as Whiplash and Baby Driver, Dylan has watched every theatrical-released film since 2014. He filtered his love of film into the EP, penning “Follow My Echo” about Finding Nemo. “I used to go to the movies every few days for an escape and really struggled for a bit when everything shut down back in March. I thought that the best way to cope with a pandemic was to write about anything other than a pandemic, so I decided to write about one of my favorite movies instead: Finding Nemo.” Adding, “I resonate so much with the message of learning to let go of somebody, but also never giving up on them.”
The EP culminates with the title track “Soldier On,” an inspiring, romantic number about overcoming fear and fighting for love, knowing “somebody loves me, my heart, and even my mind,” says Dylan. “It’s a wake-up call to not just live to survive, it’s also a love letter that shares one single feeling – If I am with her, then I could never be without.”
On top of his artistic 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, To Write Love On Her Arms, Sound Mind Live, and many other organizations.
