Dylan Wise - Volume Ten: Hi, it's Me, I'm Confident Now


Hi, it's me Dylan. For the past 10 years I have been recording music on my laptop (shout out to Steve Jobs). Currently in my Google Music library I have over 400 songs I have written and recorded - I'm not totally sure if that means anything. What I am sure of is that, like the title says, I am confident now.

I'm extremely proud of this collection - it's kind of a culmination of what I have been trying to do for the past 10 years. My recording style hasn't changed a lot in those years. I still value urgency and authenticity over getting perfect takes. There are wrong notes sung, wrong chords strummed. Some of these songs were recorded on my phone, some were recorded directly into the computer mic, some of them are distorted, some of them are a bit more polished - but all of them are exactly as they should be. I once had a conversation with producer and sound engineer Dave Auchenbach who said something to the effect of: whatever happens when you record it, that's the way it's supposed to be. 

That is how I approach the songwriting and recording process. I don't edit much. I like things as they are: jumbled, confusing, ugly and real. That's what Volume Ten is all about.

I really hope you like it.
