Dylan John Thomas shares ‘Feel The Fire’, the second single to be lifted from his forthcoming self-titled EP, out on 29 October.
The track was produced with Rich Turvey (Blossoms, Courteeners). Dylan explains, “it’s about attempting to keep your head above the water when things are difficult and no letting yourself sink into despair”.
Similarly to the ridiculously infectious opening salvo of first single, ‘Jenna’, ‘Feel The Fire’ is another melody-rich introduction to this fast-rising young Scottish musician. It’s undeniably charming, and another timely example of what the young artist is capable of.

Dylan hails from the east end of Glasgow, and is already breaking records in the motherland. He sold out the legendary King Tuts quicker than any other debuting Scot, and clocked over a million streams of his earliest introductory material.
Mentored by Gerry Cinnamon who took Dylan touring to sold-out arenas across this fair isle and into Europe, and hand-picked by Liam Gallagher to support him at the aircraft-hanger sized Hydro Arena, these are all telling rites of passage and moments on a timeline that should find Dylan John Thomas as the next big talent to break out.
Come on man. Waited 2 years, now it’s 2 days away.
Saturday King Tuts Stage 5:25pm!

As an all-too-rare working-class musician, Dylan endured a tumultuous upbringing in foster care, where he was given very little encouragement to pick up a guitar, but he didn’t need it. His is a talent nurtured through despondency and resilience; a story being written, and now ready to be told.
This weekend Dylan has his biggest hometown moment with a high-profile slot on the infamous King Tut’s Stage at Scotland’s biggest music festival, TRNSMT. Ahead of the gig, Dylan says “To have another new tune out for the shows coming up, it’s going to be some buzz. It’s just good to be releasing more tunes and getting back in about it.”
