Dylan is a Brooklyn-based composer and lyricist. He has worked with Grammy- and Tony-winning performers and producers, and his music has been described by the New York Times as “assured” with the “steaminess and drive of Janacek” and the “harmonic allure” of Debussy.
Dylan has written music for seven feature films, Vimeo Staff Pick-ed shorts, and is a part of the Shipwrecked Comedy family, composing both scores and original songs for many of their web series. He prides himself on forming meaningful creative partnerships with the directors he works with, knowing how important music is to the integrity of a film. He has also done commercial work for brands like Nickelodeon, Oakley, Red Bull, Alessi, and PBS. For his work in film, he has been awarded the Clive Davis Award for Excellence in Music in Film and Best Original Score at the First Run Film Festival.
His original musicals, written with collaborator Will Lacker, include: The Pelican (recently awarded a 2020-2021 Frank Young Fund for New Musicals Grant from NAMT), Bittersweet Lullaby, and two O’Neill National Music Theater Conference finalists, Edison, and Republic. He is the co-composer and arranger of all original songs for Diana DeGarmo‘s GEMINI, and when the album was released, he music directed the debut live performance at Sony Hall. He has served as music director and arranger for the USO Show Troupe as well as numerous award-winning cabaret productions for artists including Diana DeGarmo & Ace Young (American Idol, Hair), Alexa Green (Wicked, Company), Blaine Alden Krauss (Hamilton, Kinky Boots), Janine DiVita (Anything Goes, Grease), and Michelle Dowdy (Les Miserables, Hairspray) at Feinstein’s/54 Below, The Laurie Beechman Theatre, The Metropolitan Room, and Birdland.
