Bio

Dylan In The Movies is the musical vehicle of Boston-based singer/songwriter Brian Sullivan. Following the 2000 release of his debut album “Don’t Postpone Joy”, which received local radio play and international airplay on the WB’s Dawson’s Creek and Summerland, the 31-year-old began work on a batch of songs that would become the forthcoming EP “Feel The Pull”. Produced by Sullivan and musical partner Brian Brown (Juliana Hatfield, Bill Janovitz), the recording took place at an old Victorian house located in the haunting setting of Salem, MA and at Boston’s legendary Fort Apache Studios. It was at the Fort, where Sullivan once worked as a studio assistant, that he met Brown. The two ended up sharing a rundown apartment in Somerville, MA together. As Sullivan recalls, “Brian (Brown) came home from the studio one night and I was playing this guitar riff that would become “August Moon”. As soon as he heard it he said, ‘Let’s go record that!” Thus began the “Feel The Pull” sessions. Understated yet never simple, “Feel The Pull” is a revelation. Orchestral arrangements that ebb and flow with transcendent heights and gloaming dips offer moments of emotive greatness that rival the best of current day surrealist rockers. Reminiscent of long satisfying drives, the amalgamation of piano, cello, and guitar, steered by Sullivan’s deep balmy vocals, moves us along the poignant, oftentimes wrenchingly poetic path of “Feel The Pull”. In the same vein as Bright Eyes, Dylan In The Movies is an ever-changing group of players who orbit front-man Sullivan’s vocals and guitar. “I have some incredibly talented friends”, Sullivan notes. “If they were hanging out in the studio, I’d throw an instrument in their hands and push record”. Among those who appear on “Feel The Pull”, Ed Valauskas (The Gentlemen, The Gravel Pit), Melissa Gibbs (Heavy Stud), and Nashville-based singer/songwriter Neilson Hubbard. Former Letters To Cleo bassist Scott Riebling (Weezer, American Hi-Fi) produced the acoustic-driven "Our Biggest Love". The legendary alternative rocker Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses, Breeders, Belly) lends her angelic voice to the tracks “August Moon” and “Better Days”, the latter of which is a moving tribute to Sullivan’s late mother, Frances. Scheduled for release in Spring 2005, “Feel The Pull” is a taste of what’s to come from this break-through artist. -A.S. Cross San Francisco, CA
