SOULFUL INDIE FOLK/AMERICANA ARTIST
LAUNCHES FIRST SINGLE “MY ISLAND”
“In a time where there’s so much uncertainty going on in this world, many are turning to music to help cope. For Dylan Hartigan, he’s releasing new single ‘My Island’ for people to enjoy while also bringing the current condition of the world to light.”
-Brad Curry, American Songwriter (4/2/2020)
DYLAN HARTIGAN‘s soul-warming vocals resonate a feeling of being at one with nature and self as he shares a vulnerability in his debut single “My Island,” which is available now across all digital platforms following its premiere yesterday (April 2) via American Songwriter. The heartfelt single will be included on DYLAN‘s debut 10-track album (as-yet-untitled) due later this fall. The album was co-produced by Grammy-nominated producer Bobby Holland (ZZ Ward, Kesha, Drake White) in Nashville alongside rock n soul artist Maggie Rose.
On “My Island,” DYLAN‘s distinctive Americana-inspired indie folk melodies and thought-provoking lyrics shine as he tells the story of the world as if it were a person.
“I wanted to create a song that humanizes the world by bringing awareness to the planet as a living being–by turning myself into it. It is the story of a stolen heart,” shares DYLAN. “A woman washes up on shore and comes into this man’s life and steals him away from the woman he loves. However, with her success comes the fear of the same thing happening to her. So…unfortunately, the island gets taken over.”

DYLAN was raised in a family of musicians that played for nothing other than the love of music. He says that “music is something my family has built happiness on. I grew up surrounded by love every second music was on.” He has been an entertainer since childhood, having pursued acting at an early age with supporting roles in The Stepford Wives (2004) aside Nicole Kidman and Matthew Broderick and the coming-of-age film Funeral Kings (2012) plus appearances on TV shows including “The Black Donnellys” (2007) and “Law & Order”(2008). With a desire to explore his passion for music, he tried out for Season 14 of NBC’s “The Voice” reality singing competition and made it all the way to live performances, earning praise from such national outlets as the Hollywood Reporter which described him as “soulful and charming [with] impressive range.”
