Dylan John Thomas hails from the east end of Glasgow, and is already breaking records in the motherland. He sold out the legendary King Tuts quicker than any other debuting Scot, and clocked over a million streams of his earliest introductory material. Mentored by Gerry Cinnamon who took Dylan touring to sold-out arenas across this fair isle and into Europe, and hand-picked by Liam Gallagher to support him at the aircraft-hanger sized Hydro Arena, these are all telling rites of passage and moments on a timeline that should find Dylan John Thomas as the next big talent to break out.
As an all-too-rare working-class musician, Dylan endured a tumultuous upbringing in foster care, where he was given very little encouragement to pick up a guitar, but he didn’t need it. His is a talent nurtured through despondency and resilience; a story being written, and now ready to be told.
This Summer, Dylan John Thomas enjoyed arguably his biggest hometown moment with a high-profile slot on the infamous King Tut’s Stage at Scotland’s biggest music festival, TRNSMT, drawing one of the biggest crowds of the weekend. He performed to similarly rapturous crowds at the Neighbourhood Weekender, Newcastle’s This Is Tomorrow Festival, and the Isle of Wight Festival last month.
Now, with a new EP under his belt, he’s set to perform a headline show in the Big smoke, playing Oslo in Hackney, London on Tuesday 30th November.Buy Tickets introducing / ones to watch
