ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Pablo Dylan, grandson of the legendary Bob Dylan, to premiere his song "Midnight," out today. It is not singer-songwriter style. It's hip-hop! Clearly, young Dylan has some seriously amazing musical DNA running through his veins, but he is cutting his own path and carving out his own unique style with his music.
Dylan, 19, views his music as a snapshot of the here and now, saying, "It's a time capsule...the song is 19-year-old Pablo Dylan. I won't be able to make the same record 10 years from now...it's a glimpse of me before all my records come out. I'll never be this person again. It's kind of like my mindset right now...not my story. It's the thoughts that I'm thinking, not necessarily what happened to me. It's almost stream of consciousness. The lyrics are right from my thoughts."
The artist also confidently told us, "I am releasing 'Midnight' because it feels right. I am producing a lot of stuff for other artists and now was the time to release my first single, so people know I am an artist as well as a producer. I had my own life experiences and that's why people are going to love me and people are going to hate me. I can't wait for that."
As for what his famous and legendary grandfather taught him? "Well my grandpa showed me you could be the greatest at something," he said. "He achieved it at highest level he could and that's what I want do. He made it real."
Dylan is stepping out from behind the scenes and into the forefront because he wants to let people know who he is as an artist.
"I'm not just producing records," he said. "I am a solo artist and that's how I want people to get to know me first."
Get to know him now. You won't be disappointed.
Did the clock strike "Midnight?"
