Dylan Dunlap Doesn’t Want to Spend “Another Holiday” Without You

The Alchemist

Dylan Dunlap is an artist that we’ve really gotten to enjoy learning about recently. He developed a love for music at a very early age. At age 6, he 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 in his hometown of Burbank, CA. 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. 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.  

His newest track is called, “Another Holiday” and it is something we feel can really connect with people getting sick of quarantine. This song has a feeling that starts with sad feelings but evolves into emotions of motivation. It truly makes you think of your loved ones, and makes you appreciate life just a bit more.

Dylan had this to say about the track:

 

Holidays are difficult for me. Last Christmas was the loneliest yet, but it did offer an opportunity to reflect. We often forget how heavy this time can be for others and I want to do what I can to make sure they feel seen and heard. This song isn’t as optimistic. Sometimes people just need to hear that it’s okay to be angry, confused, and depressed. A lot of my life has been made up of growing through grieving and that’s exactly the kind of environment I’m welcoming my listeners into with this.
