Dylan Schneider: ‘College Town’- EP Review

Dylan Schneider’s brand new EP, College Town, is out now, March 18th on all streaming platforms. Check out our full review and listen to the brand new music below.

Broken Bow Records recording artist, Dylan Schneider continues to crank out new music. His newest EP, College Town is officially out now, featuring five new songs that are sure to impress any country music lover.

The record kicks off with the title track and one of the four songs written by Schneider. “College Town” creates a nostalgic picture throughout the tune. The 22-year-old shares experiences that many college-aged people go through, as we all navigate life and changes. Similarly, on “Right Girl,” penned by Morgan Wallen, Nate Kenyon, and Simon Gugala, Schneider digs into the feelings of nostalgia once again. On the only outside cut, he brings us back to missing that someone.

“Wishing you were here to take a ride girl // Rolling round riding shotgun // Leaning back in the front seat // Top-down with your hands up // Every time I take this Jeep for a drive, girl // It makes me wish you were sitting to the right, girl”

On “Girls Country,” Schneider explores a rowdy side of his talent. The song is fun, anthemic, and perfect for live performances. Reminiscent of old-school Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean, Schneider brings his own twist to a true-blue country anthem.

The singer-songwriter switches gears, and showcases his incredible vocal ability and songwriting talent on the third and fourth tracks off the EP. “21 And Over,” arguably our favorite song on the project, is a bittersweet ballad that reminds us all of our first loves, fading friendships, and growing up and apart. With lyrics like,  “Young love hates to admit it // Two sixteen-year-old kids get // So wrapped up in the moment,” it is hard not to fall in love with the track.

Finally, his debut label release, “Lost in A Small Town,” taps into that nostalgic feeling about missing that person that you used to run around your small town with. Even in the place where you grew up and that you know like the back of your hand, you feel lost because the one that you’re supposed to be there with isn’t there anymore.

The truth is College Town is bottled-up nostalgia. The EP gives fans an impressive taste of Schneider’s undeniable talent while taking us on an emotional journey through the incredible five tracks.

Who Is Dylan Schneider? The Story Behind His Journey to Country Music

Who is Dylan Schneider? The singer-songwriter joined us to chat about his journey to country music. Get to know the rising star here…

Dylan-schneider-new-music
The Beginning:

Growing up in Indiana, our Swag Spotlight artist this week, Dylan Schneider’s first love was sports. He grew up playing baseball and participating in choir but always had music lingering on the sidelines. “I didn’t really get into music until I was like fifteen or fourteen,” he tells us. Despite this, Schneider recalls getting his first guitar at only eight years old.

“I just didn’t really have the patience to learn at the time,” he admits. As he matured and realized baseball was not his true passion, Schneider found himself gravitating towards music even more and was eventually introduced to the country music genre.

Around the time he started listening to country music, Schneider found himself wanting to pick up the guitar again. This time he wanted an acoustic guitar. His parents surprised him with one just a few days before Christmas. Perfectly timed, the singer was able to get his guitar signed by someone he admired, Brett Eldredge. An early influence, Eldredge grew up close to Schneider. “That was a huge inspiration from the very beginning and after that, it just stuck with me. I started teaching myself to play and writing songs after that.”

The Turning Point:

After high school, Schneider hit the ground running with music. He developed a large social media following on YouTube and committed to playing music for a living. In 2016, the artist made the big move to Nashville. “I kind of just decided I wanted to do it,” he shared. “I just loved music so much and playing shows.”

Schneider added, “I always said regardless I wanted to go to Nashville and play at the bars. As long as I could make a living, make some money, I wanted to do music, because I loved it so much.” The singer found so much freedom in music and that was special to him. 

Combining his electric love of musical genres like rock (Nickelback), rap, pop, (Justin Bieber, One Direction), and country, the singer was able to create music that felt authentic to him. “As I grew up, I kind of went through a phase where I wanted to be a rockstar. I had a phase where I thought I wanted to be a rapper. […] Eminem was somebody that I really liked. Drake, Lil Wayne, kind of in the beginning of middle school,” he recalls.

His grind in Nashville and his love for music catapulted Schneider to play on stages with artists like Florida Georgia Line, ultimately leading him to his first record deal and a slew of successful EPs. 

“At the end of the day, I love that there are so many different influences going into country music right now. People like Sam Hunt, I think that stuff’s cool. It’s individuality. You’re telling your story anyway, it doesn’t really matter what people have to say or what’s right or wrong. As long as it sounds cool.”

Today:

Now, Schneider is a BBR Music Group artist with even more fans and music under his belt. The singer has truly found his sound and his home in Nashville. He continuously makes music that his fans fall in love with, without losing the authenticity that he has had all along.

Most recently the singer debuted his first major-label single, “Lost In A Small Town.” The song started to take shape at the end of 2019. “I threw out this line that was like ‘she’s the kinda girl that would leave you lost in a small town,’” begins Schneider. During a write with his producer and his friend, Gabe, the song would go on to live many lives.

Despite the fact that it was finished, Schneider felt that it was not good enough, and the men redid the entire song. “We ended up writing the song twice and it stemmed from an entirely different song.” Now the singer says,  “I like the way it is now and I’m excited about it.”

The song is a fresh way to share about a break-up in a small town. Instead of focusing on the girl, the song really focuses on how it feels to feel like everything in your life is different. The perspective change and unique story-telling makes the song a great one.

If that is not exciting enough, Schneider promises that more new music is coming down the pipeline. Switching it up from what he has done in the past, the singer has decided to release individual songs over the next few months. “Each song is going to have their opportunity to be heard.” The singer promises that there are a lot of songs that are ready to release. The next song should come in the upcoming weeks.

Dylan Schneider Releases New Song “Lost In A Small Town”

Dylan Schneider’s new song “Lost in a Small Town” is available everywhere today (7/30). Take a look below as we dig into the song.

Dylan Schneider just signed a new record deal with Broken Bow Records and today he put out his first song with the label, “Lost In A Small Town”.

At only 21 years old, Schnieder already has four EPs under his belt, popular songs like “How Does It Sound” (2017) and “How to Country” (2019), and has opened shows for Florida Georgia Line and performed with Brett Eldredge. Although it has been two years since Schneider released new music, his Whole Town Talk EP, he is continuing to grow as a country music namestay and will continue to do so with his latest release “Lost In A Small Town”, available everywhere now.

“Lost In A Small Town” is about missing that person that you used to run around your small town with. Even in the place where you grew up and that you know like the back of your hand, you feel lost because the one that you’re supposed to be there with isn’t there anymore. Your memories together are forever tied to all the places there, and now they just don’t feel the same without them.

“How am I Lost In A Small Town // Rolling up and down these roads that I grew up on // You can say it’s all these memories // what we used to be, keeping me from moving on

NYCS First Impression: Dylan Schneider ‘Whole Town Talk’ EP

Whole Town Talk Dylan Schneider

19-year-old Interscope Records singer-songwriter Dylan Schneider has partnered with Round Here Records to release his fourth EP titled Whole Town Talk last Friday. The EP contains four songs all co-written by Schneider, including “How to Country”, “Hometown Heartless”, “Bad Thing About a Backroad” and the title track “Whole Town Talk”.

The first two songs, “Whole Town Talk” and “How to Country” are great party/tailgate songs. The title track written by Schneider with Corey Crowder and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line is about an epic party thrown in his home town that got everyone talking about it.  In “How to Country”, Schneider sings about the things he does and the way he lives his life, reminding everyone that “Nobody gotta teach me how to country”.

The next two songs, “Hometown Heartless” and “Bad Thing About a Backroad”, are more vulnerable, talking about lost love. In the former, he sings “I know they said home is where the heart is, but you left this hometown heartless”, proving that his smalltown is not the same without the girl he loved who moved away, while the latter twists a played out narrative about backroads and country living turning depressing after a breakup.

The Terre Haute, Indiana native’s favorite genres growing were pop and hip-hop but discovered his love for country music around the age of 13. His biggest country music influence was Brett Eldredge which began when he saw him live at a show in Paris, Illinois, Eldredge’s hometown. The following year at Eldredge’s show in Terre Haute, he invited Schneider on stage to sing with him. Since then, Schneider has released four EPs before his 20th birthday.

“We are so excited to get to join team Dylan to help encourage, support, and create opportunities for this amazingly talented artist and writer,” shares Hubbard and Kelley in a recent press release. “We’ve loved Dylan since the day we met three or four years ago and are so thankful to have him in our family and on our roster. Timing is everything— and for Dylan, the time is now.”

“I’ve looked up to BK and Tyler for a long time now, and Interscope has been an amazing label home,” added Schneider. “To have two monsters in the music industry like FGL and Interscope joining forces on my behalf is a dream come true. Truly humbling. This new EP has been a long time coming, but I promise it’s worth the wait. This is hands down the best music I have ever written and recorded – can’t wait to share it with the world.”  Schneider will join FGL on the remaining dates of the Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour.
