Second track Feel The Fire from forthcoming debut EP streaming now
Glasgow’s landmark 2021 edition of TRNSMT festival gave a huge welcome and seal of approval to one of its own on Saturday 11th September, as local lad Dylan John Thomas drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend on the King Tut’s Stage. Not only was the crowd enormous but, almost incredibly, they sang along with every word of Dylan’s set, including Jenna and Feel The Fire, the two tracks so far released from his forthcoming debut EP, out October 29th.
The latest, Feel The Fire, was produced with Rich Turvey (Blossoms, Courteeners). Dylan explains, "it's about attempting to keep your head above the water when things are difficult and no letting yourself sink into despair".

Similarly to the ridiculously infectious opening salvo of first single, Jenna, Feel The Fire is another melody-rich introduction to this fast-rising young Scottish musician. It is perhaps reminiscent of The Coral’s early earworms, all shuffling rhythms arrow-focused to both heart and feet. It’s undeniably charming, and another timely example of what this young artist is capable of.
Dylan hails from the east end of Glasgow, and is already breaking records in the motherland. He sold out the legendary King Tuts quicker than any other debuting Scot, and clocked over a million streams of his earliest introductory material. Mentored by Gerry Cinnamon who took Dylan touring to sold-out arenas across this fair isle and into Europe, and hand-picked by Liam Gallagher to support him at the aircraft-hanger sized Hydro Arena, these are all telling rites of passage and moments on a timeline that should find Dylan John Thomas as the next big talent to break out.
As an all-too-rare working-class musician, Dylan endured a tumultuous upbringing in foster care, where he was given very little encouragement to pick up a guitar, but he didn’t need it. His is a talent nurtured through despondency and resilience; a story being written, and now ready to be told.
