Dylan Swinson began playing guitar at the age of 10 in his childhood home in Summerville, South Carolina. He was inspired when his mother would play some of her favorite cds while dropping him off at school. These included albums from Better Than Ezra, The Cure, and Edwin McCain. One day, she puts in Jeff Buckley's Grace and Dylan was immediately hooked on the album. After watching Buckley's "Live in Chicago" DVD, he knew he wanted to learn how to be a musician.

In 2011, He began playing open mics around the area while attending The Art Institute of Charleston for Filmmaking. After graduating from The Art Institute in 2014, Dylan used his Graduation money to record his first EP "Freedom & Solitude", leaning toward an Acoustic Alternative Singer/Songwriter feel. It was released on July 18, 2015.

He has opened for many touring artists such as Will Pugh (Cartel), A Sunday Fire, Glass Mansions, and Chase Huglin while releasing his sophomore EP "Prove em' Wrong Kid" on May 26, 2017 to positive reception. Some of the songs on this EP has found its way on rotation on 105.5 the Bridge in Charleston, South Carolina and WPRK in Winter Park, Florida. 

Dylan performed at the 2017 Charleston Music Confab to rave reviews and released his first full-length album, "Self-Titled", through Real South Records on March 20, 2020. Dylan continues to perform around Charleston with either his originals or a set of pop and rock covers ranging from the 60s to today.

When he isn't doing solo work, Dylan is also a member of The Jamm, a cover Duo with Evan Lampkin (Social Void); and Jerkweed, a pop punk/emo band with Matt Zutell (Coast Records/Human Resources) and Ryan Hanifin (My Life As A Dog), both established here in Charleston.
