New on the Scene | Dylan Rhys

Fifteen-year-old Dylan Rhys is already making waves as a standout in the next generation of Texas musicians. Dylan joined the Texas Country Music Association a year ago and told TCMM that he really appreciates how TCMA supports and promotes artists at all levels – especially the younger kids.


Having grown up in a music-loving household that was regularly listening to artists like Pat Green, Cory Morrow, and Wade Bowen, it was an easy decision for Dylan to pick up the guitar and learn to play at nine years old. Singing came shortly after.


Dylan is currently working to craft his own distinct sound, while drawing influences from artists the likes of Turnpike Troubadours, Shane Smith and the Saints, Flatland Cavalry, and Wyatt Flores.

"With how young I am, I'm really trying to take the time to find the sound that I gravitate towards and that shows who I am. Luckily, I don't feel like I have to be in a hurry to define myself, and I really appreciate the support and opportunities I've gotten while I figure it out."


Dylan’s evident talent has granted him the opportunities to open for national touring artists such as Jon Stork, Jesse Daniel, Matt Castillo, and Bailey Rae, and to share the stage in renowned venues such as Dosey Doe – The Big Barn and The Kenney Store.


Dylan recently recorded his first single, ‘Solid Ground’, at Yellow Dog Studios, which he described as “an amazing experience.” Dylan began writing this song immediately after attending a songwriting seminar in Nashville, taking what he learned to write a song that expresses “that feeling you get when you see your comfort person you haven’t seen in a while”. ‘Solid Ground’ is expected to release in mid-to-late July.
