Here’s our interview with Dylan Stiles. Dylan Stiles is a 22 year old Hip-Hop/Rap artist from Madisonville, Tennessee.
What’s your favorite part about making music? What are your goals within the music industry?: “My favorite part about making music is the art, and creativity that goes into it. Art has always been important to me. When I younger I was always drawing or creating something. I have been making music since I was in 7th grade. My uncle taught how to play the guitar, and I kinda just took it from there. I wanna tell people my story, and help people. I started making music, because I seen the opportunity it has to help people. I have crated my own record company that give independent artists a chance to get in the studio, and put there music out there without having to break the bank, or sign a BS contract. As a producer I wanna work with artists who have a vision of what they want, and the drive to get there. As an artist I just wanna be remembered for the hard work, and dedication I’ve put into this. I’m not even supposed to be able to make the music I make. I was born with a birth defect called Cystic Hygroma. I wasn’t supposed to be able to walk, talk, eat, or anything really and I do all those things. I’m basically a normal guy now I had a tracheostomy to help me breathe until I was 16 years old. It’s a miracle I’m even alive.”
Which artists have had an influence on your music? Who’s music would you compare yours to?: “Growing up I lived way out in the country so I grew up listening too Johnny Cash, Allen Jackson, Kenny Chesney, and Eric Church. It wasn’t until I was in 8 grade when I started listening to Rap. When I was at school my friends were all Drake and lil Wayne fans. So naturally I started listening to some rappers, and the first rapper I liked, and really rocked with was Kevin Gates. From there I found a Tennessee rapper a little older than me on SoundCloud going by the name “Arrii” who is now known as Ryan Upchurch. Upchurch inspired me the most probably him, Johnny Cash, & Eric Church. My cousin Justin Moses who is a bluegrass artist inspired me a lot as well I grew up watching him make it in the industry and that give me the thought of hey he made it I can too. My music sounds different because you don’t know what to expect. I bring a lot too the table. I have songs that sound like Post Malone, and I have songs that sound like Travis Scott. Then I have songs that sound more country like Upchurch or Adam Calhoun. I have rock songs, rap songs, and country songs. I grew up listening to every from AC/DC to Vince Gill to Eminem. You really never know what I’m gonna put out there.”
What are you working on right now? What should readers go listen to?: “I’ve been working on new music I have a couple projects I wanna do as well as YouTube videos, and I’ve really been working on my producer skills trying to better my sound quality. I’m planning on putting a song out every month, or every other month next year. I’m also planning on doing a tour next year, and putting on some shows for my fans. There’s also a movie coming in the future I wanna get into acting and, producing movies, and shows. I’m making a YouTube channel called “StilesTV” where I can let my creativity run wild on there.
