Australian musician Dylan Joel is unlike most Hip-Hop artists, standing out from the crowd with his exceptional singing voice, clever wordplay and socially aware lyrical content, that when combined, form a very unique take on Australian Pop Music.
“I think music’s one of the greatest things our world has to offer, so why not make the most of that and use it for the benefit of others” – Dylan Joel.
Dylan’s debut record, Triple J feature album, ‘Authentic Lemonade’ showcased his musical dexterity, taking on the role as co-producer for the record alongside Aria award winning producer Cam Bluff (Amy Shark, Hilltop Hoods, Illy). On album number two, 3 years in the making and set for release early 2018, Dylan proves he’d not afraid to take his time, put in work and wait for the songs to reveal themselves when they’re ready to.
Gifted with an effortless ability to jump from double-time raps to spoken word through to vocal harmonies, Dylan also incorporates an impressive list of instrumental skills into his work and live performances. Performing with a live drummer and bass guitarist or just by himself on an acoustic guitar, Dylan’s unique combination of musical abilities have seen the talented wordsmith crossing the country, supporting international acts Pharoah Monch and Hopsin, as well as iconic Australian Hip-Hop stars Bliss n Eso and Illy on their national tours. Overseas, Dylan has performed a selection of international events, most notably selling out his intimate headline show in Toronto Canada, plus numerous Aussie festivals including Pyramid Rock and St. Kilda Festival.
Blending the sounds of Hip-Hop, Gospel and Soul, his passion for musical quality, combined with realistic and heartfelt lyrics, is confirmation to listeners just how diverse and talented he is. Poised and ready for greatness, Dylan Joel is making sure the label of him being ‘just a rapper’ is well and truly put to bed.
