With a natural gift and a passion for writing and performing music, Dilema has entered the rock world by storm. He aims to become the new urban rock voice for young America, as he incorporates his background and life experiences into his music, which allows audiences to relate to him. A multi-cultural background of Italian, Hispanic and African-American descent results in an equally hard-to-define sound blending elements hard rock and rap. Dilema believes his diverse ethnicity has only helped him to create a different and distinctive sound. "I use my past experiences to create music that will make a difference and have a positive influence for young America."
Born in the Bronx, New York, Dilema grew up in a multicultural environment listening to hip-hop, salsa and other popular music. At the age of eleven he moved to Texas with his mother and was introduced to rock music. It was at this young age that he began to pursue his dream of song writing. This hobby soon became a career and in 1993 he was signed to EMI Music Publishing as a songwriter. A few years passed and he realized the need to pursue his own career as an artist. Dilema believed the true meaning of his music was lost when performed by other musicians and felt that he was the only one who could express the real emotion contained within his lyrics. He decided to combine his love of hip-hop and rock to create a unique and original genre.
Dilema hit the studio hard trying to achieve a sound that reflected his background and past experiences. He self produced his first rock album titled Rock Star, which was a mixture of rap and rock. He was immediately picked up by Billionaire Productions, a small Indy label, and they began their successful partnership. Dilema exudes an energy that allows his audiences to feel his passion for music and song writing.
WITH OVER 400 SONGS AND 3 NEW ALBUMS IN 2009, (WITH A TOTAL OF 12 ALBUMS ON THE MARKET), DILEMA HAS TAKEN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY BY STORM. THE TECHNO CULTURE ALBUM, RECORDED JULY 2009, IS THE LATEST DIVERSE MATERIAL FROM THE ROCK ARTIST.
