My Story

An accomplished performer, writer, and creator. One of the stars of Broadway’s Holler if Ya Hear Me, a musical inspired by the lyrics of late rapper Tupac Shakur. Also played Lost Boy Prickles in NBC’s live adaptation of Peter Pan as well as other film/TV credits including High Maintenance, Central Park, and Prison Break. Studied theatre at the CAP21 conservatory and earned Bachelor’s degree from The New School with a concentration in Media Studies and Writing. Began performing professionally at the age of 12 with the inception of the group 3D. A visionary in the making, Dyllon created this group as a fun way for he and his cousins to spend their long summers together on their family’s ranch. It wasn’t long before the group would gain the attention of executives at Radio Disney and find its way onto stages in some of the nation’s most prestigious concert venues including the Nokia theater and Madison Square Garden performing with the likes of Ludacris, Rihanna, The Jonas Brothers, India.Arie, Robin Thicke, and Stevie Wonder. It was while leading the group that Dyllon developed his passion for writing. "Writing songs for [the group’s two studio albums], myself, and other artists allowed me to give voice to the ideas and characters in my head". In addition to his work as a performer and writer, Dyllon has also served as creative director for the worship arts ministry of Potential Church, a mega-church based in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, for which he also wrote and arranged songs. He teaches artist development workshops and has spoken to students at schools across the country about the arts and education.

"I believe being an artist is being a student of life, people, culture and all it has to say".

Dyllon has worked and studied with some of the best in the creative world including: Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey, Emmy Award winning director Glenn Weiss, Tony Award winners Kenny Leon, Wayne Cilento, Rob Ashford, Casey Nicholaw, Adrienne Lenox, and Tonya Pinkins. As a recording artist, he has been mentored by Grammy Award winners Stevie Wonder, Rodney Jerkins, and Gordon Chambers.
