DYLYN,

“Music has always been a part of my life, and growing up listening to Pet Sounds and The Carpenters really gave me a good solid base.”

“I’ll never forget the first time I heard Led Zeppelin. I may have been 12 or 13 waiting for my brother’s hockey practice to finish. My dad put on a CD called Early Days and Latter Days and a little song called “Stairway to Heaven” came on. I remember looking out the window and crying because it was one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. From that point I knew my calling. That song lit a fire in my soul and I had research to do. What was so special about this time? Zeppelin pushed the envelope and it’s something I try my best to connect with through their records and album art.

The first time I listened to a vinyl record is when my uncle gave me a box of his albums. Little did we both know what kind of monster that was about to create. When you listen to vinyl records there’s something so pure and raw about them. There’s a feeling of longing and nostalgia. Even though I wasn’t part of such a beautiful time, it really brings me to that era and I could imagine where I could have been. My apartment is covered with some of the best vinyl album covers of all time.

There is something special about putting on a record and following the lyrics that often appeared on the inside jackets, and looking at the beautiful artwork on the covers from some incredible bands. A movie that captures moments like that is Almost Famous—the discovery of a thousand dreams under the bed when the lead character’s sister leaves him all her records. I think she says light a candle, put this record on and all your dreams will come true.

Music is, and will always be, my first love. It’s that tune you can play over and over and every time you hear it, you notice something different, or the lyrics will change their meaning, or a memory will sweep by. It’s different every time.”
