Melbourne born singer and rapper Dylan Joel, returns to Howler for one night, celebrating the release of his brand new collective ‘You Were Made To Blossom’.
After 2 years of writing, recording and writing again, the collection itself demonstrates an artist on a mission to continue to take risks and expand what it means to be an artist in todays climate. That mission begins with calling the collection, ‘You Were Made to Blossom’.
As the title track demonstrates, it’s about silencing the critic in your head and believing in your own abilities. “It’s a message that needs to be pushed in this day and age,” Dylan says. “There is so much self-doubt going on right now and it’s amplified pretty easily by social media. To me, the idea of blossoming is to love ourselves, not in an arrogant or comparative way, but in a way that brings out the best in us. That’s a real hard fight and one that I feel we need to talk about more often. Hence the title.”
