Conversations with Missy: Erik Dylan

by Missy Wolf / 2718 days ago / Comments

Being a hit songwriter is not an easy task. Many songwriters never get the credit they deserve for the songs they craft. As you will often hear, the music industry is a brutal business and requires a thick skin. Artists face rejection more than most, but those who do not let the “No’s” control their career go on to create hits that are remembered forever. Erik Dylan is one of the names that you are sure to remember for the rest of your life.

Having already written and co-written several hit songs such as “Angels in This Town” by Eric Paslay and “Put Me in a Box” on Justin Moore’s album Kinda Don’t Care, which hit number one on the Billboard chart, Dylan has already experienced the success that others dream of.

Now it is time for Dylan to show the world who he really is. With an upcoming album of his own, this artist is proving that he can do more than just write a hit song. Due to be released on October 21, 2016, Heart of a Flatland Boy is sure to capture the attention of music lovers everywhere.

His new single off the album title “Pink Flamingos” is creative, fun and not at all what I was expecting. During our conversation, we spoke about the content of the song along with the video that accompanies it. I asked about his musical influences as I heard echoes of The Who as I listened. Listen to our full conversation to hear what he had to say.

Not only is Dylan a talented singer/songwriter, he is fun and easy to talk to. After hearing his back story, I immediately connected to him as a friend. The stories he shared were not only exciting, they were honest and touching. From being discovered by Kip Moore to being invested in by an Oklahoma friend with a fortune, Dylan has led an extraordinary life story thus far.

Stay connected with this genuine soul and extreme talent by checking out his website and following him on all social media. Be sure to pre order his upcoming album and you will be rewarded with three tracks instantly. ~Missy

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
