Dylan Cragle is more than just a young man with a big voice. He is a young man with a big heart! Dylan has a masterful way to write not only great pop music with moving rhythm and beat, but weaves in a meaningful message with every new release. His latest song “In This World” not only illustrates this, but once again gives you an inside look at who Dylan Cragle really is, and what he wants to convey through his music!
Dylan is extremely compassionate about an issue that many young teens face every day at school. Bullying! This is not only wrong but has driven many teens to even take their own lives because of not wanting to face another day of this repeated torturous routine from their peers.
While swinging on his back yard swing, Dylan started thinking about a friend at school who was getting bullied on a daily basis. He thought; “Why are some people so mean? Why do they purposely try to hurt and make fun of others?” Dylan was pondering a way that he could help her when he suddenly realized his thoughts could be turned into a song. He ask his Mom to bring him a tablet and pencil and soon the words began to flow out of him. In about one hours time his masterpiece was complete and while handing it to his Mom he exclaimed; “I think this is a real good one Mom.”
Dylan then took his lyrics to his producer Victor Holguin. Victor said, “ok Dylan sing it”! Dylan started singing the chorus and Victor started playing the melody on the keyboard asking Dylan what kind of sound he was looking for? Before long the song came together and the result speaks for itself.
Dylan is currently working on another original written by Victor more than nineteen years ago. A song entitled “I Can See” which was inspired on the eve of the birth of Victor’s son and it has never been recorded until now! Dylan is very honored that he has been asked to record this touching ballad which will be recorded this coming week. Dylan sang this song at the Meeker Days Festival just this past July but you will definitely want to hear the studio version once it has been released.
There is so much more that could be said about Dylan with regard to his talent and singing abilities. However, what makes Dylan Cragle stand tall in my eyes, is his character, compassion, humility and politeness coupled with the artistry which he has once again demonstrated to us all. This is not just another new song with a catchy tune. Dylan has impacted his world with a meaningful message to everyone that hears it and I can’ help but believe that it will not just change the life of a struggling friend. It will change everyone ‘”IN THIS WORLD”!
