SIGNS TO SONY MUSIC NASHVILLE
Rising singer-songwriter Dylan Marlowe debuted his new track, “Record High,” today. Listen here. The release arrives on the heels of Dylan’s announcement that he has signed a record deal with Sony Music Nashville in conjunction with Play It Again Entertainment.
Dylan, who is one of Spotify’s 2023 Hot Country Artists to Watch, penned “Record High” alongside Zach Abend, Abram Dean, and Tyler Collins.
“One night it was super late and my roommate tossed out the phrase ‘record high,’” Dylan said. “We started writing right then and kinda flipped what you normally think of when you think of a record high, and wrote it in a negative sense about a breakup in the absolute worst way it could be done. I’m so proud of how everything came together for this song. It’s for sure one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written.”
The Statesboro, Georgia native found his way to Nashville just before the start of the pandemic but made lemonade from lemons, filling his days with songwriting, networking, and finetuning his craft. In 2020, Dylan signed a publishing and artist development deal with hit songwriter and publisher Dallas Davidson’s Play It Again Entertainment. After Dylan shared a performance of his countrified rewrite of the Olivia Rodrigo hit “Driver’s License” to social media, people really started paying attention. The clip immediately quadrupled his TikTok following and has racked up over a million views on YouTube to date. The enthusiasm surrounding the track prompted him to release it to streaming services, followed by his own infectious tunes like “All About It,” “I’ll Keep The Country,” and his most recent track, “Why’d We Break Up Again.”
Now, with his recent opening stint on Cole Swindell’s tour under his belt along with his first No. 1 as a songwriter for Jon Pardi’s “Last Night Lonely,” Dylan has set the scene for a monumental takeoff in 2023. Drawing from influences like Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and Cody Johnson, Dylan is carving out his own creative niche that he’s filling with music that fans will readily identify with the name Dylan Marlowe.
