Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Gardner releases his debut album, "Adventures in Real Time".
Co-produced by Gardner and Jack Dragonetti (The Submarines, Jack Drag), the album is a showcase for the 18-year-old Illinois native's brisk hooks, high-spirited melodies, and a musical eclecticism that reflects his deep love for his pop-rock predecessors, including The Beatles, Ben Folds, and Vampire Weekend.
Gardner first began to attract attention with the album's opening track "Let's Get Started" when he put it up on Spotify earlier this year. After being included on a playlist called "Smart Is The New Sexy," the track caught fire and began racking up plays. (It is now close to three million.)
Raised in both Illinois and Arizona and now based in Los Angeles, Gardner has been playing piano, guitar, and drums, as well as writing songs since he was a kid.-DocFB
