DYLAN JOEL ANNOUNCES NEW COLLECTION OF MUSIC TITLED, YOU WERE MADE TO BLOSSOM OUT MARCH 29th
ALONGSIDE NEWEST TRACK NOT ALLOWED TO
Melbourne singer-songwriter-rapper Dylan Joel announces the release of his latest collection of music You Were Made To Blossom due for release on March 29th via Warner Music Australia.
After 2 years of writing, recording and writing again, the collection itself demonstrates an artist on a mission to continue to take risks and expand what it means to be an artist in today’s climate. That mission begins with calling the collection, You Were Made to Blossom. As the title track demonstrates, it’s about silencing the critic in your head and believing in your own abilities.
“It’s a message that needs to be pushed in this day and age,” Dylan says. “There is so much self-doubt going on right now and it’s amplified pretty easily by social media. To me, the idea of blossoming is to love ourselves, not in an arrogant or comparative way, but in a way that brings out the best in us. That’s a real hard fight and one that I feel we need to talk about more often. Hence the title.”
Dylan’s reference material was inspired by the early-2000s R&B he loves, particularly the rhythmic hip-hop-and-acoustic hybrids of Timbaland and early Timberlake, and not forgetting Pharrell. You can hear threads of that in current single, the swag laden, Not Allowed To, as well as collection highlights, Done Witchu and Hollering Love. Each marry the incredible songwriting skills of Joel with the crafty lyrics and deft wordplay, offering both a gritty throwback for the fanbase; and
an extension of the hooky earworms hinted in previous single Run To The River, all tracks combining to amass over 2 million global streams.
Following his successful debut (and triple j feature album), Authentic Lemonade, and a string
of national tours, 2019 is looking to be another powerful step forward for Dylan as he looks to keep writing the music he was always meant to, leaving no question as to what makes Dylan Joel such an “undeniable talent” (TheMusic.com.au).
