Premiere: Dylan Dunlap – Face Value

A singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, all bundled into one personality, Los Angeles based artist Dylan Dunlap is quite the archetype of the modern musician. The budding singer enjoyed opening for One Republic last year and is garnering support steadily after impressing at venues across America and in the UK, covering venues such as London, Winchester,  New York, Chicago, St. Albans among others. What stood out in most of Dylan’s serenading singles is the value that he accords to emotions, conflicted or otherwise, in human relationships. Following up on his previous single ‘LiarLover‘, the LA man is back with yet another well penned and superbly crafted exclusive single titled ‘Face Value’.

‘Face Value’ affords Dylan the opportunity to address the discussion surrounding mental health – a cause for which he has partnered with organisations such as Autism Rocks, NAMI, and the LA Children’s Hospital to foster and focus discussion towards the rising mental health related problems. ‘Face Value’ in its essence is a peppy single with choppy vocal snippets and adeptly employed beat-work bi. But the real drive and power of the track lies in the magical voice of Dylan Dunlap. The LA based singer sings from the depth of his heart, as he lets the emotionally thoroughgoing lyrics ring out the message of the track. ‘Face Value’ is a single that, although is bound to be atop the charts soon, carries a message that goes beyond the orthodox hobnobbing of the music industry – it is comfort siren from Dylan Dunlap to others.
