Born Gwendolyn Lewis, DYLYN was once a minor pop star with top 10 dance hits on Billboard, but she wasn’t happy as a dubstep diva—and not just because no one could spell her then stage name, Guinevere. When she wasn’t touring with former teen idols, she’d be at home listening to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, & Blondie.
Her new material took shape when she headed to L.A. to work with Toronto bred producer Colin Munroe (Kendrick Lamar, Lights), who encouraged her new rock direction. “After that I had more confidence,” she says. “I was more clear about doing my own thing.” Ryan Guldemond of Vancouver hitmakers Mother Mother became another key collaborator. “After working with Ryan, I thought, ‘This is it. This is finally the stuff I’ve been wanting to write. Perhaps not coincidentally, the first song they wrote together is called “Find Myself.”
Tracks from both those sessions will be unveiled throughout 2020, culminating in a 2021 EP Make It Naked. Featuring the emotionally raw and slinky “Something to Lose”, the fiery riff-heavy rocker „Call Me What You Want,“ and her show stopping “Find Myself.”
