    Definite State of Mind
Dylan Swinson began playing guitar at the age of 10 in his childhood home in Summerville, South Carolina.
He was inspired when his mother would play some of her favorite cds while dropping him off at school. These included albums from Better Than Ezra, The Cure, and Edwin McCain. One day, she puts in Grace by Jeff Buckley and Dylan was immediately hooked on the album. After watching the Jeff Buckley Live in Chicago DVD, he knew he wanted to learn how to be a musician.
​Dylan and his family moved to Dover, Delaware in 2005. It was here where Dylan discovered his love for Pop Punk and Alternative Rock music. He spent his Senior year recording his first demo and playing garage and school coffeehouse shows around the area.
​In 2011, Dylan moved back to Summerville the day after his high school graduation. He played open mics around the area and used his Graduation money to record his first EP, "Freedom and Solitude" in 2015. He was awarded i93.7 Walterboro Male Singer/Songwriter of the year and took home two Independent Tone Awards (Upcoming Alternative Rock Artist and Upcoming Rock Artist) in 2016.
​He has opened for many touring artists such as A Sunday Fire, St. Maurice, Glass Mansions, Joseph Aaron, Chase Huglin, Will Pugh (Cartel) and released his 2nd EP, Prove em Wrong Kid, on May 26, 2017 to positive reception.
​Dylan will release his first full length album "Self Titled" on March 20, 2020 through Real South Records.
