In recent months, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter Dylan John Thomas has had a succession of big moments, including a mainstage performance at TRNSMT, a sold-out Glasgow Barrowland show, making his Glastonbury debut and playing shows as guest to Noel Gallagher’s High Flying BirdsCourteeners and Stereophonics. Mentored by Gerry CinnamonDylan’s latest accomplishments add to previous achievements which have included gigs with Sam Fender and Liam Gallagher, as well as airplay from BBC IntroducingRadio X and 6 Music. Today, Dylan John Thomas releases the official video for his new single ‘If I Didn’t Laugh’.

Dylan also recently announced his UK headline tour, which commences on the 18th November in Aberdeen and culminates in Glasgow, with two nights at Barrowland Ballroom on 7th and 8th December. The first of the two nights was a day one sell out, leading to announcement of the second date to fulfil demand.  Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased HERE. For the full list of live dates visit https://www.dylanjohnthomas.com/tickets

Both ‘If I Didn’t Laugh’ and ‘Fever’ will feature on ‘Dylan John Thomas – EP2’, along with two brand new songs in the shape of ‘Now and Then’ and ‘What a Shame’ as well as the opening instrumental ‘Battle of Alesia’. The EP will be released on 4th November across digital & streaming platforms as well as a limited edition 12” transparent vinyl. Pre-order or pre-save the EP  HERE.

The unflinchingly honest, first-person perspectives that make Dylan’s song writing so engaging reaches new heights on ‘If I Didn’t Laugh’Dylan looks back at the summers of his childhood. Living in foster care and separated from his siblings, he looks back and concludes “If I didn’t laugh, I’d cry.” But in contrast to the social realism of the lyrics, the song feels unstoppably uplifting. From its earworm whistles to the anthemic hook, ‘If I Didn’t Laugh’ feels like a kindred spirit to his cover of ‘Ring of Fire’, the first song he ever learned to play and a highlight of his live shows.

‘If I Didn’t Laugh’ was written by Dylan John Thomas. He produced and mixed the track with Rich Turvey (Blossoms, Courteeners). Watch the brand-new video HERE. Listen HERE

Music proved to be Dylan’s escape into a bigger world during the childhood he recalls in ‘If I Didn’t Laugh’. Named after his first hero, Bob Dylan, he continued to be inspired by all-time great songwriters such as Leonard CohenThe BeatlesSimon & Garfunkel and Johnny Cash. Striking out on his own, he would busk in Glasgow in all weathers, but he was undeterred by the challenges of the seasons. As he developed his talents as a performer, Dylan’s songs prompted the city’s shoppers to stop and pay attention.

One early supporter became a pivotal figure in Dylan’s life. Gerry Cinnamon provided both encouragement and guidance, setting an example of someone who could cultivate a career on his own terms. And soon Dylan was making waves of his own, selling out King Tut’s quicker than any other Scottish artist in the venue’s history, and developing a wider following with his self-titled debut EP.
