Catch these vibes on all digital platforms.
Have you always been interested in music? What is your story and how did you start making music?
Always. Music just came natural to me. I always leaned on music as an outlet for everything in my life. I started by writing songs for other artists and quickly transitioned into writing songs for myself.
Music is my biggest priority for sure. Without it I would be lost. Being through several surgeries and battling health issues to literally being on death bed I still leaned to music to pull me through all of those dark times and continue to make music that people can relate to. That connection is powerful and unlike any other
What are you working on now? Any future releases we can look forward to?
Working on a major project right now.
Death of a Rose is such a powerful project full of vibes and emotions.
Most definitely. Having one of my best songs personally is dropping this Friday September 3rd called PA!N.
This ones means a ton to me as well as very relative to honestly everyone.
I recorded this song 2 days after being released from the hospital from having a major surgery so it really was my way to let everything out, and that’s exactly what I did.
What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry?
I want to continue to build a powerful and strong fanbase and continue my career and growth as an artist.
Want to be on stage in front of thousands of fans and move the whole crowd every single night. Connecting with people through music is my biggest goal in life and always has been with the music industry. The bigger the connection the more powerful the movement. Won’t stop until I have everybody in the world’s attention!
What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?
Definitely would have to be navigating life and a music career at the same time. You just have to find that balance. It’s hard at first but greatly rewarding.
How do you go about writing a song? Do you have a melody in your head and then write the other music for it or what’s Your typical songwriting process?
Typical songwriting process for me is all based one emotion and the vibe I’m feeling st that time. It can be dark, happy or even sad. I just let the vibes flow out of me and it’s the best process I have ever done. I always say the first thing that you say is going to be the best because it was the first initial thought you had. So I gravitate towards that. Always letting the emotions drive the music.
Starting with a melody in my head also helps but I seem to just have a natural ability for it and it just comes right out.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
Oh it’s a massive impact. Between streaming services and social media it really lets an artist build themselves and put themselves in front of people the way they want to be seen. It’s great for building your platform. It kind of is like putting your life on display and showcasing your talents to everyone who is willing to watch.
If it’s something the people want to see or hear they will gravitate towards it and the internet just makes it so much easier for everyone and anyone to find you and find what you do.

What Did You Do Before You Started Making Music?
I’ve always made music from the get go even as a kid but before I was able to transition it into a career, I worked construction for years. That everyday early and all day grind. Definitely a well paying job but just wasn’t where my heart wanted to be with it. Music has always been my home
Would you have any advice for young people wanting to follow in your footsteps?
Chase your dreams and follow your heart,
Always do what’s best for you and continue to be yourself. That’s what makes us artists is being who we are in a creative form.
Never give up until you have achieved your goal no matter how many people tell you you can’t.
If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?
Honestly I love the completion, but I think a little more collaboration and a little less competition would be good for artists.
Step out of your comfort zone and make something you wouldn’t ever make by yourself.
Aome absolute great music has came from crossing genres or blending collaborations.
More collaboration for sure.
How do you feel about originality?
Oh it’s huge. You want to be a stand out artist but at the same time staying true to yourself and creating your own original elements that set you a apart from other artists. Staying creative and not just copying something else that was done because you feel it would work for you. Step outside of your comfort zone and create what you want and stay true to yourself. That’s how you find real art. Being yourself in your creative form is truly what makes your music your own.
Is there anything else we should know about you? or Something that you would like to add?
At the end of the day I will always be myself and continue to follow my hear and chase my dreams until I am not able to do so anymore. Even if everything doesn’t go as plan I will continue to work at it until D!llon is all over the world. I’m a Dreamer and I make my dreams reality. It’s what I do best.
