I'd like to introduce the AWESOME Dylan Bernard for this week's Music Monday. He's a really cool guy from New Jersey ready to take the world by storm. He's totes on track to be the next teen heart throb with a great commercial look and soft voice. You might know him as the artist signed to my other partner Jay Swag's management. Dylan has some amazing talent I can't wait to see what the future brings for him, so learn about him now on his rise to fame:
Introduce yourself really quickly for any of my readers who may not know you?
"Hey everybody! My name is Dylan Bernard. I'm 17 years old and I'm a youtube artist from South Jersey. I've been singing ever since I was about 5 years old."
I love your song covers! Are there any artists that inspire you?
"There are a few artists that inspire me as far as my sound goes, but none of them compare to my main inspiration; my mom. She passed away when I was little and ever since then I've been pursuing music to make her proud of me."
If you could work with any artist who would it be?
"Hmm that's a good question. Right now, I'd have to say Andy Grammar. I like how most of his songs are uplifting and I haven't heard one of his songs that sends a negative message. I think in today's world that's very important and I love that he sends a positive message in everything that he does."
Are you working on any special projects at the moment?
"Yep! Most recently my manager and I launched my official website www.DylanBernardMusic.com so be sure to check that out. Once a week I ask my fans what they want to hear and post a cover on my YouTube Channel; www.youtube.com/dylantbernard. Every sunday at 7pm ET make sure you guys tune into ustream.com/
for our weekly web series. There are also a few artists that I plan on
working with in the near future and I'm humble that these artist's chose
me to work with them and I'm very excited. Lastly, during the summer of
2013, I plan on releasing some original music, so be on the look out
What are your music goals for 2013?
"My music goals for 2013 are to finalize my image and sound. From there I'll be able to come up with my own music, and discover even more artists to work with. Another big goal of mine is to reach one million page views by the end of 2013. Of course, without the fans none of that would be possible. I just want to take the time now to thank each and every one of my fans for believing in me and what I do. I promise to never let you down."
"Yes I do! If I could describe my personal way of becoming a well known artist, it would be consistency. The one thing I've come to learn is that it is so important to be consistent in everything you do. I post covers once a week, interact with my fans daily, and dedicate most of my time into what I love to do."
Do you have anything you want to say to the readers of Malibumara?
