Thirteen year old Dylan Cragle from Washington state is making his mark as a recording artist with his new original song “What’s Up With School” this week.  While many youngsters his age are singing copycat songs in attempts to be recognized, Dylan has taken it to the next level as a song writer/performer.  Working regularly with his producer Victor Holguin, Dylan is learning to exercise his unique creative talent.

Dylan began writing “What’s Up With School” about 2 months ago and I am delighted to introduce it here for the very first time.

What’s Up with School?

Dylan’s desire was to write about something that not only he could relate to, but something that all teens could identify with and enjoy.  This song is quite different than his past recordings as it is upbeat, cheery, and has a very catchy beat.  Like most teens, Dylan despises homework and often asks “why do I have to learn about this?” His Mom Lynn told me, that the chorus for this song  just spilled out while having a conversation with her about the subject matter of the song.  Once the lyrics for the chorus were in place, he thought of a melody and how he wanted the song to sound. He then took this to his producer and from that they started composing the music. Dylan then started writing the verses, the bridge, and came up with some ad libs. The song slowly developed, and what we hear today is the final results of this fantastic collaboration of creativity and effort.

Dylan is already looking foreword to writing his next song and we are very excited to see what comes next from this fantastic new young recording artist!

Don’t forget to leave your comments for Dylan, as he very much appreciates hearing from you, his fans and supporters!

Great job Dylan!  Keep them coming! We all wait in anticipation to your next offering here at Rivenmaster’s Place! …..”Rivenmaster”

    The track “Bless the Broken Road” is a love ballet suited for the masses, definitely not for the realists who prefers to hear the blues. Your taste in music is sweet and romantic, a definite plus+.

  7. There are several things I like about this article. The first one is that it makes me extremely happy to see that the young singers support each other. The second of course is the new song of Dylan – its quite different than the songs he debuted with and the vibe is quite catchy. I also think that writing and performing original songs is essential for every performer as this is what makes him/her unique. Bravo Dylan !
