The Story

For internationally recognized singer-songwriter Dylan Lloyd, the future holds promise and longevity.
In December of 2009, Lloyd signed a music publishing deal with RADAR MUSIC PUBLISHING/BMG RIGHTS MANAGEMENT. From that point forward, Dylan has been establishing himself all over the world as one of the most outstanding performers of his generation. Lloyd has written and co-produced with some of the best producers, songwriters, and artists in the music industry, i.e., platinum producer “MdL” (JUSTIN BIEBER, CHRIS BROWN), Kevin Savigar (ROD STEWART, JOSH GRACIN), gold producers Rob Kleiner and Chris Sernel (CEE-LO GREEN), gold producer Michael Jay (EMINEM, MARTIKA), platinum producer Soundtrakk (LUPE FIASCO)...and others.

In September of 2011, Dylan Lloyd was the first and only American to be invited to an international performing event in Ukraine, broadcast on television to over 100 million people across Eastern Europe through “IHTEP” Television (Ukraine Television) and other European TV channels. The competition was called “Crimea Music Fest”, the first performing attraction in world history to sponsor contestants from each continent. Approximately two years later, Lloyd would release his debut EP entitled "One By One" with Lupe Fiasco’s hit-producer “Soundtrakk” in May of 2013. The EP has since been promoted numerous times by Lupe Fiasco and his blog "The Lupend", and has garnered wide-spread acclaim. In December of 2014, Lloyd released his debut solo album called "The Vault" and it became his first charting solo album on the iTunes charts, as well as his fourth consecutive charting album on iTunes, preceded by the records “What Could Be Better”, “This Is Better”, and “Find A Way There” (all charting in the Top 50).
A few months after "The Vault" was released, Lloyd received his own radio station on Pandora in April of 2015. In the same month, his next iTunes release known as the "Aria - EP" charted top 100 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter Charts. In April 2016, Dylan Lloyd had his highest charting solo EP to-date with the release of “Per Aspera Ad Astra”, peaking in the Top 50 of the iTunes Charts. Followed a year later by his next release entitled “Genesis” in March of 2017, “Genesis” would become his 7th consecutive Top 100 on the iTunes Charts. In the summer of that same year, Lloyd would release “The Truth - EP” , which not only went on to chart in the Top 200 of iTunes but was also recognized by Shazam/Apple Music on their “BEST NEW MUSIC PLAYLIST” for the song. “More Than Friends”. Dylan Lloyd appeared on the list alongside Demi Lovato, Coldplay, Big Sean, U2, and more.
Most recently, Lloyd released his latest record “Then & Now” in February of 2018 with longtime friend and collaborator Stephen Jerzak, and it was a huge success. The album debuted at number 22 on the iTunes Charts, peaking at number 14 and staying on the charts for three straight days becoming Dylan Lloyd’s longest consecutive day run on the iTunes Charts.
The success of “Then & Now” currently brings his total number of iTunes Charting albums to 9, a streak that seemingly has no end in sight. Lloyd also has been recently giving lectures on the music industry atMoraine Valley Community College that have been highly successful. He will be giving regular lectures there starting in the Fall of 2018, and is currently about to embark on a nationwide tour of colleges giving seminars about the business to young and aspiring singer-songwriters.
