Dylan Donkin

BandPopAdult Contemporary

Dylan Donkin is an acoustic guitarist influenced by folk and rock artists,such as, Neil Young and Pink Floyd. His ethereal vocals tell a story that take you back to the 60's with an up-to-date rock edge.


On any given day, Dylan can be found debating the finer points of The White Album while perched upside down in a bizarre yogic pose. If he could reach it, he'd probably be punctuating his phrases with chords on the piano too. With a record collection a mile long, the singer/guitarist absorbs music like water on a got sidewalk. He draws from an eclectic array of influences (ranging from Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith to Neil Young and Pink Floyd) to forge tunes that are distinctive and original, yet strangely familiar. His wailing vocals and layers of harmony carry straight out of the atmosphere. Originally from San Francisco, Dylan followed fis muse to Maui's north shore at the edge of a rainforest, drawing inspiration from the tranquility of the islands. After fine tuning his organic sound in Maui, Dylan has returned to the serenity of the fresh air, rivers, lakes and stunning mountains of Northern California. Dylan's melodies echo his surroundings, painting pictures with vivid lyrics and soothing music.
