At only 20 years old, Dylan Brady is an accomplished singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has already caught the attention of Zac Brown Band and Rascal Flatts’ Joe Don Rooney as well as Columbia Records New York. Signed to Barry Weiss’ RECORDS in partnership with Riser House/Columbia, Brady’s “Over Us,” out today, is a co-write between the New York native and writer Jared Scott and writer/producer Andy Sheridan. Sheridan also co-produced the track with Rooney. While maintaining the live instrumentation and storytelling integrity of early country, his music drips with new-age soaring melodies and pop breakdowns.
“For someone who is ready to move on, but not quite ready to say goodbye, “Over Us” is a song we wrote for you,” shares Brady who moved to Nashville on his own in 2016 to be closer to the creative songwriting community. “When we sat down to write this, it was the first time we’d all gotten together, so we started with an idea I had a few years back: you’re over the relationship but miss the little things about the person. Immediately each of us could recall that one relationship that wasn’t meant to be, but it still was better when you had someone.”
Diagnosed with Tourettes at the age of 13, Dylan found surprising relief from the neurobiological disorder symptoms when he would play music. His drive to help young kids feel included despite their differences caught the eye of Disney channel. Dylan was later featured on the series “Make Your Mark” and debuted his first song on Radio Disney.
He’s since emerged beyond his Disney Channel days and is coming into his own, crafting an addictive style of country music. Inspired by his mother’s southern upbringing, his influences growing up included Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, and Billy Currington; later growing to love Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Jason Mraz it is no wonder his music is an interesting blend of pop and country.
Brady has been making waves on socials with his brand of pop melodies and heartfelt country lyrics that can only come from a teen living his life in this day and age.
