Office Concerts: Dylan Brady

 

Dylan Brady, a freshman songwriting major at Belmont University, has opened for artists like Meghan Trainor, Zac Brown Band and 5 Seconds of Summer– all before the age of 18.

He got the opportunity to open for Meghan Trainor in 2014 when she played a show in Long Island, New York, Brady’s hometown. It was his first “really big show,” Brady said.

Trainor approached Brady after the show with a big compliment.

“You’re a star,” Trainor said.

It’s a moment Brady said he will remember forever.

Brady has also toured with the social media group IMPACT Meet and Greet, along with other musicians and social media influencers across the country.

Originally, Brady didn’t plan on going to college because he wanted to continue touring and growing his music. However, he realized that he wanted to make an impact beyond his social media.

“There’s a difference between social media musicians and actual industry musicians, and that’s why I came to Belmont,” Brady said. “Coming here, I can make an impact in the actual music industry while continuously growing my social media outside.”

Brady’s favorite musicians are Sam Hunt and Thomas Rhett, who Brady said helped shape the way he writes and performs.

However, Brady is still focused on creating his own sound. Like Hunt, Brady wants to find what is unique about him that is going to make him the next big thing.

“If you find your lane that makes you different or makes you separate from them, then no one else is in your lane,” he said.

Dylan played two original songs for the Vision Office Concert. His first song is titled “Hate It When I’m Gone” and his second song, “Chills,” will soon be released as a single. Brady says fans can look forward to “Chills” having different production than any of his previous work.
