Dylan Emmet
Dylan Emmet
Dylan Emmet is a New York singer/songwriter with an interesting story to tell. After finding out he had a two year old daughter he never knew about, Dylan began releasing a string of gut wrenching songs documenting his journey, beginning with leaving Los Angeles to become an insta-dad in New York overnight. Currently living with his daughter back in upstate New York, Dylan has continued to successfully write and produce for multiple artists on both coasts by utilizing video chat and taking occasional month long trips to LA to write. In the past year Dylan has had his songs featured everywhere from Billboard to Spotify’s New Music Friday.

“My songs process my feelings of nostalgia, and the passion and desire I have buried deep inside to take risks and break free from the comfort of the past,” confides indie-pop songwriter Joe Wood.

Joe shrouds his lyrics in a wash of dreamy synthscapes, jagged guitars, rugged hip-hop beats, and sharp pop hooks. His words capture the mania, anxiety, and alienation of being a 20-something artist in New York City. His addictive pop sensibility is like an opiate; tranquilizing the jittery effects of heartbreak and disappointment. Joe counts Bleachers, LANY, Robyn, and Charli XCX as influences. He writes, produces, tracks, and performs his cinematic electro-pop in his apartment studio in Brooklyn. He brings a homespun DIY approach to his tracks nurtured from his early trial and error experiments splicing together hip-hop samples when he was in middle school and high school. Therefore, Joe favors a limited toolkit of affordable gear, stock synth sounds, drum samples, and a guitar to build his richly layered pop compositions.

Unlike many bedroom visionaries, Joe is an unabashed natural performer. “Sitting in front of the computer meticulously producing tracks is not exciting for me,” he says with a good-natured laugh. “My favorite place to be is onstage. There, there is no filter and there is no insecurity—onstage is where I show people who I really am.”
