The 23 year old has made his mark in the States and now plans to carry out an Irish tour and embark in new music production with Irish artists during his stay.
It's not an uncommon thing for musicians and creatives to come to Ireland in the hopes of not only breaking into Irish media, but to regain a sense of creative flow and experiment in their craft.
Hailing from New Jersey, Jared Dylan has moved to our fair capital city for a few months in hopes to collaborate with Irish producers and songwriters in addition to setting off on his first Irish tour.
He even brought a gift for us in addition to tour dates - his first Irish single 'Can't Stop' will be available online from tomorrow, 16th of March. The track comes off his next EP, a currently unamed affair which will be released this summer.
“I feel inspired in Ireland and I feel like I am finally making the music I’ve always wanted to make,” Dylan says of his plans. Hoping that his stay here will further aid him in his creative work, notable producers such as Danny Saber who worked David Bowie and Madonna and Carmen Rizzo with Coldplay - have previously mixed and remixed a number of Dylan's tracks.
Having being enrolled at the University of Miami and the Frost School of Music’s Bruce Hornsby Creative American Music Program, Dylan and his musician library also drew the attention of composer Eric Alexandrakis and producer Anthony Resta - which led him to the creation of his first EP In Panic, a composition of 80s inspired vocals and string ballads.
