"I woke up forgetting what it means to live
And looking back saw a list of all the reasons that I did

I took em all for granted I’m guilty I plead the fifth
And I’m realizing maybe all I need, is this."

Dylan Owen is a rap artist from New York. With his own brand of confessional, heart-on-sleeve storytelling, he has built an undeniable fan following who relate to the meaning in his songs. As shown in his fan-favorite EPs, ‘There's More To Life’ and ‘Keep Your Friends Close,’ his wordplay and multisyllabic patterns prove his proficiency as a rapper, while his writing feels more like that of a young storyteller who can also rhyme. Dylan left Cornell University in 2011 to develop as an artist in New York City.

Dylan has earned press from tastemakers and brands including Revolt TV, PepsiCo, Earmilk, This Song Is Sick, HotNewHipHop, Good Music All Day, and Huffington Post, as well as landed sync placements on MTV and on Syfy’s WWE Smackdown. In 2012, Billboard named Dylan a Next Big Sound Artist for his swiftly growing online buzz. He has shared stages with Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, Yelawolf, Grieves, Watsky, Logic, Ceschi, and many others.

In 2016, Dylan embarked on his first headlining tour which included a sold-out date at New York City's distinguished Nuyorican Poets Cafe. He is now releasing new music from a forthcoming album and performs frequently in the New York area with his bandmates on violin, trumpet, guitar, and keyboard.
