Dylan Rodrigue’s music has always been a journey, exploring all genres and musical forms. Dylan was raised in small yoga-based intentional community in Northern California . . . a very quiet and peaceful place with a quiet and peaceful music scene. This all changed at the age of seven when Dylan’s father snuck a copy of Who’s Next into his bedroom. This sparked a passionate exploration of music from the Beatles to Fugazi, the Pixies, Elliott Smith and Vic Chesnutt. He began playing guitar and writing his own songs at age 8, studied classical guitar in high school, and eventually obtained a degree in songwriting and avante-garde composition at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts).
