Rejuvenation

Wow!

It’s been awhile since I’ve written a new blog. My apologies.

Wednesday, I begin work on my new album. This album will be of songs entirely composed and written by me. I will be working at Say Audio in Santa Paula with Seth Yamamoto. 4 of the songs will have contributions by Ronnie King. It feels great to be composing music again, which is a completely different approach from my previous album “reflection of my imperfection” which I used several different producers.

I will be going live from the studio sessions and you can follow on my social media @dylangarciamusic

Love you guys!

Wish me luck.

Prosperity Unfolding…

Let’s get caught up to speed…

Yesterday I signed a distribution deal/contract with Freedom Over Fear Creative Group based out of NYC. I am very pleased with my decision after much thought and the assistance of my wife. We decided that working with them was best for myself and my career.

I had another offer with Red Label Records (Universal Music Group) based out of San Diego, California, but I decided to turn them down. Nothing against them, I just vibed with Freedom Over Fear better and we were on the same page with the vision of my future.

I chose to sign with an independent label because I have more leverage in my decisions and creative freedom when it comes to my art.

I am in the beginning stages of planning my first tour of Southern California to support my album. I will begin the tour in San Diego and work my way north, finishing in my hometown of Ventura. I have not yet chosen an opening act to go on the road with me. Each tour stop I will probably let the local artists open up for me.

This moment in my career has been a long time coming. All my hard work is coming into fruition and now it’s time to work even further to elevate my status as an artist.

My album “reflection of my imperfection” is a story of a man seeking redemption. It starts out with a man definitely living the good life and then success begins to get to his head. A few bad choices leads to some heavy negative karma. But this man is a fighter and survivor and is no spectator oblivious to the challenges of life. He battles back and ends up finding salvation and clarity through love and perseverance. The story ends with a man who regains his soul and has found comfort in the higher power.

Well that’s it for now…

God Speed

Wow, it’s been a long time since I have written to you. My sincere apologies!

We have reached the point of our destination. My album is now complete. It has been a learning experience working on this piece of work the last year and a half. This period of my life has been just like anyone else, growth. You can hear it in my lyrics and music. My album tells a story of a man seeking redemption while understanding what it takes to hold a marriage together, being torn through good and evil in a spiritual battle. Battling demons that a man has been experiencing his entire life. Part of the album was written while I was still drinking and the other half while being sober. This album tells my story.

At this point I am in the midst of meeting with record labels and left with the big decision of who is going to release and distribute my story. I will definitely keep you informed of my experience while on this journey.

Some of you may have noticed I no longer have my personal Facebook profile. I deleted it for several personal reasons. Please let your friends know that they can follow me on my music page.

This point of my life I will call it spiritual breakthrough. My priorities have changed and my relationship with God is most important to me. I’ve realized that I cannot do it on all on my own. With God in control, my decisions are more likely to be made with clarity.

On that note, I’ll leave you with this…

Be the best human being possible. Never stop fighting. You are important!

Back In A Flash

I would like to start off with an apology. It’s been far too long since I have updated you on my blog.

This year has been starting off with a bang. My networking from 2017 is coming into fruition now. I released my new Record and Music Video “Unpredictable” on January 19th. A local radio station in Ventura debuted the Record all week leading up to the release. My mentor and record producer Ronnie King made a cameo in the video which was very cool to work with him. He actually shared the Record “Unpredictable” with a radio station in the Coachella Valley and as far as I know it is still in rotation. My manager has been working very hard and bringing opportunities to the table. I will be performing at a Pre Oscar party on Feb 26th in Hollywood. I will also be performing at an exclusive celebrity red carpet event on March 9th in Los Angeles.

I’m writing this with a grin on my face because I am very thankful and fortunate to be in this position. You know, you work so hard for something for many years and things begin happening. I have put in the work to advance my writing. It’s like anything in life that you want to flourish. You must work and dedicate yourself to evolve into the best you can be. Keep working and your skills will improve.

Never give up!!!!

Dylan

Letting Go

Well 2018 is starting off as a learning lesson. Just like the title says, letting go. I’m doing my best to break my old habits. Habits of fear and insecurity. I’m human, of course I’m insecure like everyone else in the world. I’m also letting go of friendships and acquaintances that no longer serve me positively. I just can’t lower my standards anymore. My commitment to sobriety, I guess scares these people away. That’s completely fine with me. I am moving forward with sacrifices and decisions to suit the lifestyle I choose to live. My goals are to be a better father and husband. I want to inspire people and share my talents and loving heart to those who want to improve themselves as better human beings. 

My career is progressing rapidly and I’m joyful to know that all my hard work, commitment, sacrifice and discipline is finally paying off. My next single and music video for my record “Unpredictable” will be released on Friday, January 19th. My album is officially complete and I’m making headway with my new management team. 

Blessings,

Dylan Garcia 

2017 Recap

Good day to all my fellow friends of the world…

I’m going to see if I can crunch all this in…

This year was a time of growth and awakenings. I lost some friends and people I love along the way, but I am not in control, God is. 

I placed all of my focus on my career and moving forward in the right direction. I changed management in the process, which I believe was the best decision. My album is pretty much almost complete and my team and I are working on a distribution deal. 

In my personal life, I became the person I truly am, a man filled with love. I credit my changes to myself, but I was provided with inspiration from God and the most beautiful souls I know. If I am not good to myself I cannot be good for others. I really didn’t know what to expect coming into this year, and I’ll admit that I was lost. It took some hair raising experiences to open my eyes to stop my self-destruction. Living with a mental illness doesn’t make things any easier. I stopped drinking and I am happy to say I am 129 days sober.

Love can heal all…

Besides my sobriety, the most beautiful moment this year was my marriage to my twin flame, Gabriela. It is too much to write about for our love story. Living with a distance of two continents couldn’t stop the hands of God at work in both of our lives. All I can say is this…

When you love someone, give every ounce of love and soul and never look back. What’s meant to be is meant to be…

Maybe I’ll continue this tomorrow…

The Seat Belt is Buckled

Wowzers, it’s been an intense, eye opening holiday season. I was going into the holidays with arms open ready to embrace  the moments with my wife and I was thrown a curveball. Thanksgiving was very nice with my family. I woke up the next day from a phone call that my cousin was found dead. I really didn’t know how to react to the news, because my last conversation with him was so positive and uplifting. I guess you never know what someone is going through internally despite how great a conversation is. I was devastated. I did my best to hide my wounds because I had career obligations in Hollywood with my new manager the following week. 

Okay Dylan, you got this…

Internalize all the bullshit in your life as usual.

So, I went to Hollywood not knowing what to expect. It actually turned out very well. Cameras, interviews, lights flashing, photos, networking etc. 

I ended up coming home on that Friday and made it to the tail end of my cousin’s reception. I gave his mother and father a hug and told them I loved them. 

You never know what life will throw at you. Trust in God for guidance. 

Dylan 

Happy ThanksgivingĀ 

Well where do I start…

Today I am grateful for all my experiences in life, good and bad. The purpose of life is to grow as a person. Nobody is perfect and that’s what makes us all unique. We are separated by our mental and physical differences. 

I’m learning everyday to be a better man. I’m learning to trust again in my life. There are things that happen in our lives that can pressure us to put up our walls. Trust me, I know how it feels to feel this way. I’ve lived more than half of my life with my walls up. People from our past can cause us to learn that it can be impossible to trust again. This is something I must unlearn. I’m married for crying out loud and I’m doing my best to lower my guard, but honestly it’s difficult. 

I am completely perplexed by the positive response of my new music video. I’m glad this record served as an inspiration to many. It puts a smile on my face. 

I hope you all have an amazing time today with family and friends. Never forget to be thankful for your blessings.

Dylan

Trust and ForgivenessĀ 

Wow, the universe most definitely has a way of getting my attention. There are no such things as coincidences, everything happens for a reason. Never in my life have I ever felt change happen so rapidly. It can be so overwhelming at times that it’s hard to conceive and trust. I leave it all in God’s hands. 

Music- 

My album is now complete with 12 songs. I can honestly say that I have nothing else to say. I let it all out on this project. I held nothing back and poured out my heart and soul. Please be patient for it’s release. 

Tomorrow at 9pm PST I will be releasing my new music video for my record “If You Left It Up To Me” on YouTube. This record is not on my album. I decided to give back to my fans and give this record away for Free on Soundcloud. 

Life-

My healing process from my surgery is going very well. I no longer need my cane and I am walking about 90% normal. I knew this was going to be an uphill battle that I could persevere. With God on my side, everything is possible. 

My relationship with my wife is growing closer and closer with each moment that passes. I honestly can say that I don’t know how my life would’ve turned out without her. She’s an amazing woman and I am grateful to have her apart of my life. 

Til next time, 

Dylan 

The Drawing Board Is Full

Let’s get caught up to speed…

Lately I’ve been focusing on getting back to 100% from my surgery. Physical therapy has been helping tremendously. I am using my cane less frequently, which is very positive. I do enjoy the attention I get from the cane lol. All in all maybe 4 more weeks of rehabilitation and I’ll be able to start exercising again. 

As for marriage life, I’m learning and growing daily. I made a decision and a life long promise to love my wife…for better or for worse. I do not take commitments lightly. I’ve never been a quitter either. This isn’t some boyfriend/girlfriend nonsense, this is real. 

For the last month I have been searching for musical compositions and to no avail, I’ve had no luck…until today. I have completed my preproduction at home and I’m trying to get back to the studio tomorrow. Let’s see how that goes…

My new music video for my record “If You Left It Up To Me,” should be completed by Friday. This song is a free download on soundcloud already. I feel the fire inside of me has been lit and everything is going my way in a positive direction. Feeling truly blessed! 

Final thoughts…

When you get an opportunity, please do not pass on it or take it lightly. You never know what it can lead to and most importantly you never know when the next opportunity is coming. Take a gamble on yourself. Don’t depend on your friends to push you…you need to make those decisions yourself. 

Til next time, 

Dylan
