When Charlotte, NC native Dylan Gilbert first started recording songs at the age of 13, they were just a patchwork of the visions bubbling around in his head. His father's four-track was only a temporary place for them to rest. Now at 24, Gilbert has released 5 albums and a number of independent film scores which delve deep into a unique indie pop sound adding touches of folk, jazz and experimental rock.
Dylan Gilbert has performed over 400 concerts throughout the east coast (including stops in New York City, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Nashville, Washington DC, Chapel Hill NC etc. )sharing the stage with national acts such as Owen Pallett (Domino), Paper Tongues (A&M Octone), Lost In The Trees (Anti-), Benji Hughes (New West), Des Ark, Those Darlins, The Love Language (Merge Records), Future Islands and Screaming Females. Gilbert also performed at the 2011 Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh NC with headliners The Flaming Lips, Superchunk and Drive By Truckers.
Gilbert has sold over 3,000 albums independently since 2006 and in December 2010 he received the Examiner Award at the Charlotte Music Awards. His music is currently available on iTunes, Amazon.com, CDbaby.com, Rhapsody and more.
In 2012 Gilbert started a new band called HECTORINA with longtime collaborators Zach Jordan and John Harrell III and plans to continue releasing music as a solo artist along side this new project.
