Dylan Schneider is wise beyond his years, especially when it comes to his songwriting. But perhaps even more impressive is Schneider’s ability and willingness to connect with fans on a personal level. “I used to freak out if an artist would respond or interact with me. It’s incredibly important to me that I do the same with my fans.” That love for fans has helped grow Schneider a collective social following of over 1,000,000.

After the release of the debut EP Wannabe in August 2016, his follow up EP 17 was released in October of the same year, landing at #3 on the iTunes Country Album Charts. In February of 2017, he premiered the music video for his song "You Heard Wrong" with major music outlet Billboard, who called him "country music's next rising star." Schneider released his latest EP Spotlight’s On You in April of 2017, and the five-song album hit the #1 spot on the iTunes Country Album Charts. He spent the summer on the road, selling out dates on his own headlining tour, and released "How Does It Sound" in July of 2017, which has already accumulated over 6 million streams on Spotify. 

In November of 2017, Schneider signed with Interscope Records as the label's first direct country signing - coinciding with the release of his new single, "No Problem". He's was recently on tour as direct support for Chris Lane's “Take Back Home Tour” and Granger Smith's “Don't Tread On Me Tour”. Dylan is currently headlining his own tour, selling out shows across the country.

With a lot in the works, Schneider’s focus remains the importance of the fan. “At the end of the day, I’m nothing without my fans. When I write, I’m thinking, ‘how is this song going to sing live, and how will the audience react and identify?’ What I do, most importantly, is for my fans. My job is to connect and show them a good time.” It seems Schneider’s off to a great start in doing just that.
