Before landing in San Francisco, Dylan honed his musical chops in Chicago fronting different rock acts in the city’s club and festival scene. Dylan has opened for Paula Cole, Shelby Lynne, Eric Hutchinson, Maps and Atlases, Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), and has recorded musical collaborations with John Stirratt (Wilco), Chuck Panozzo (Styx), Johnny Iguana (The Claudettes), Julie Wolf (Ani Difranco, Bruce Cockburn) and acclaimed Polish jazz singer Grazyna Auguscik.
Previously he was lead singer of the synth-rock band Software Giant, releasing the spaced-out-yet-sinister album "We Are Overcome" in 2015.
His previous solo releases - "Electric Grids & Concrete Towers" (2009) and "Wandering Eyes" (2004) - drew praise from critics around the country and established him as a singular voice in the queer rock and Americana scene. Both albums were co-produced by Blaise Barton (Liz Phair, Bob Dylan) at Joyride Studios in Chicago.
