Indie folk/Americana singer-songwriter DYLAN HARTIGAN shares his vulnerability on new single “What’s In The Cards” as he opens with the soul-stirring lyrics, “What’s in the cards darlin’, Could it be me and you? If it’s not, then I’m caught in the cosmic slide that never wants to pull through.” The single premiered via Stereo Embers magazine yesterday (5/14) which praised it stating, “There’s a touch of tension and a touch of optimism operating from different corners throughout the song and Hartigan’s delivery is filled with aching exactitude.” “What’s In The Cards” is available today across all digital platforms, stream/download it HERE.
“‘What’s In The Cards’ is about love and how you kind of never really know how long it’s going to last,” says DYLAN. “This song is trying to figure out a basically unanswerable question.”
“What’s In The Cards” was recorded by Grammy-nominated producer Bobby Holland (ZZ Ward, Kesha, Drake White) in Nashville alongside co-producer and rock n soul artist Maggie Rose. The track will be featured on DYLAN’s upcoming yet-to-be-titled debut album due this fall alongside the previously released single, “My Island,” which premiered on American Songwriter (4/2/2020). DYLAN partnered with the Empty Space Project to record an intimate video for “My Island” as part of their series which feature artists using minimal resources in at-risk or abandoned locations around local communities.
DYLAN has been an entertainer since childhood, having pursued acting at an early age with supporting roles in The Stepford Wives (2004) aside Nicole Kidman and Matthew Broderick and the coming-of-age film Funeral Kings (2012) plus appearances on TV shows including “The Black Donnellys” (2007) and “Law & Order”(2008). With a desire to explore his passion for music, he tried out for Season 14 of NBC’s “The Voice” reality singing competition and made it all the way to live performances, earning praise from such national outlets as the Hollywood Reporter which described him as “soulful and charming [with] impressive range.”
DYLAN has previously toured across the country on intimate performances hosted by Sofar Sounds and performed onstage with “The Voice” judge Kelly Clarkson during the Allentown, PA stop of her “Meaning of Life” tour last year. Prior to coronavirus’ impact on live performances and events, DYLAN was scheduled to open for co-producer Maggie Rose and Them Vibes on a stretch of dates across the East Coast.
