Erik Dylan was born in Kansas into a farming family; fourth generation to be exact. Despite his familial background, Erik recognized a passion distinct from what his bloodlines dictated — one for music.
Making a decision to pursue that musical passion, Erik packed his truck and made the move from Kansas to Nashville, Tennessee. With just his truck, a guitar, and a dream, Erik arrived in Nashville, making the choice to do whatever it takes to make ends meet until a country music career took off. What it took was a slew of odd jobs and open mic nights … at least until one fateful performance changed his life forever.
While Erik was playing at a Nashville songwriters’ hangout, country artist Kip Moore took notice and immediately became invested in his future. In the blink of an eye, Kip opened doors for Erik, introducing him to Brett James, which gave way to a publishing deal with Brett and Warner Chappell. And just like that, Erik Dylan was well on his way to achieving his dreams.
To date, Erik has penned over four hundred songs and has album cuts by JT Hodges, Chad Brownlee, Robin Meade, Randy Montana, Austin Webb, and Kip Moore. Also a singer, Erik has recorded and released his own music, including single “Where the Party At”; a tune that was launched on Sirius XM’s The Highway with the support of John Marks.
At the end of 2014, Erik released his five-track self-titled EP under Flying Shoe Records, much to the excitement of fans. Erik continues to write and play around Nashville, promoting his music and collecting fans along the way.
