It’s a coming-of-age tale equally ripe for the big screen or NETFLIX…
At the tender age of three, Dylan Gardner took the stage for the first time in a packed Chicago blues bar, rocking the maracas to an uproar of applause as he accompanied his dad’s band. Fast forward a few years, he spent countless hours in the family’s instrument shop in Naperville, IL before eventually relocating to Arizona during 2010. The budding 15-year-old songwriter personally chose to be home-schooled so he could devote as much time as possible to writing and recording music and amassing a High Fidelity-size vinyl collection John Cusack could appreciate. He came to emerse an encyclopedic musical knowledge that could power a streaming service search engine, a fashion sense right at home in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, and the uncanny superpower to craft irresistible pop anthems.
