Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Gardner has been touring nearly non-stop since the release of his debut album, Adventures in Real Time, on Warner Bros Records.
Gardner has been on tour most of 2015, playing solo acoustic, as a duo, and mostly with his astoundingly accomplished trio (Nick Jozwiak on bass, and brother Mark Gardner on drums and percussion). He clearly has the stagecraft and charisma to take his studio-wizardry and songwriting finesse to anywhere in the world that still thinks a great song should have a bridge. Gardner just wrapped up two months on the road with Emily Kinney, playing mostly sold-out shows across America and hitting every record store within a hundred miles of each tour stop.
This month, Dylan Gardner will be going on tour for a string of shows at Arizona-area high schools where is music has resonated with an audience not much younger than himself.
“Playing high schools has been an amazing experience for me ever since my first performance at Xavier College Preparatory in Arizona two years ago. What I thought would be a routine performance turned into Woodstock on the campus lawn with students and teachers hollering at these songs they’ve never heard before. It was so amazing to see since I was homeschooled online while working on music for most of my high school tenure, and this was an amazing way to share the joy and energy I put into my music with my peers. I make tons of new friends at each high school, and I get to play to a great audience every time. There are moments when I play high schools and I’m singing one of my songs and I close my eyes and hear some people singing and I know that they are going through the same things that I write about in my music because we’re going through the same part of life right now. It’s such a magical feeling to share that with hundreds of people, even if it’s at 7 am.” Dylan says.
