Dylan Owen is a rap artist from New York. With his own brand of heart-on-sleeve, confessional storytelling, he has built an undeniable fan following at a young age. As shown in his latest single, “Everything Gets Old,” his wordplay and multisyllabic patterns prove his proficiency as a rapper, while his writing feels more like that of a young storyteller who can also rhyme. Dylan left Cornell University in 2011 to develop as an artist in New York City.[wpex click for full bio]
As a result of 25,000+ downloads on his 2012 EP, Keep Your Friends Close, Dylan earned press from tastemaker sites including ThisSongIsSick, GoodMusicAllDay, Hypem, and many more; landed national TV sync placements in MTV‘s Miley Cyrus: The Movement Documentary and Syfy‘s WWE Smackdown; and surpassed 1 million views on his YouTube channel. Dylan’s previous LP, Senioritis, reached iTunes’ top 200 Rap/Hip-Hop chart and features underground rap sensations Mac Lethal and Symmetry (of Symmetry x Ryan Lewis). Dylan has been featured on Power 105.1 FM, numerous college radio stations, and in news sources including Huffington Post, Newsday, and Time Out New York.
In late 2012, Billboard elected Dylan a top-15 “Next Big Sound” artist based on his swiftly growing online buzz. With this online presence, he has traveled the nation from his east coast home base to Los Angeles, Colorado, Philadelphia, Connecticut, Washington DC, New Hampshire, Virginia, New Jersey, NYC, and many other cities to perform. Dylan has opened for Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Chiddy Bang, Mac Lethal, Grieves, George Watsky, The Metermaids, Logic, Skizzy Mars, Asher Roth, and many others, as well as performed on the Bamboozle 2010 lineup at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. Dylan will be releasing music and videos leading up to a new project, There’s More To Life, the next installment in his coming-of-age story.[/wpex]
