It was actually during one of the music festivals where he met some DJ friends and the connection was instant. Dillon performed with them as he realized that music is where his happy destiny lies. He discontinued as a student to expand his musical creative wisdom and formulate it into an eccentric one. His soundscape is an inspiring tale of his life experiences and relationships that helped him find themes in his music. All in all, a university student who gradually formed his fan base and musical perspective in such a short time is worth all the praise in the world. Not Dillon’s single ‘Back To The Start’ featuring fellow artist Laura Page has also received critical appreciation.

One of his biggest accomplishments came after his first song as a solo artist was signed to Sony. He is all about performing on stage that boosts his confidence like no other. He performed across the USA and is now getting ready to share his EDM hunch with the world.
