Rising Glaswegian musician Dylan John Thomas unveils ‘Jenna’ from debut EP


Dylan John Thomas shares ‘Jenna’ the first single taken from his forthcoming, self-titled EP, out 29 October via Ignition Records.

A melody-rich ode, ‘Jenna’ skits along, bobs and weaves, moving through the gears at will. Its ridiculously infectious – an indie guitar song destined for the terraces. Play it once and you’ll have the melody looped, play it twice and you’ll already be singing along to the refrain.

Dealing almost solely in earworms, Dylan John Thomas hails from the east end of Glasgow and is already ticking all the right boxes. 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, telling rites of passage saw him take Dylan touring to sold-out arenas across the UK and into Europe, and he was also hand-picked by Liam Gallagher to support him at the aircraft-hanger sized Hydro Arena. As Summer finally arrives, Dylan will inevitably be filling out the tent stages at the likes of Neighbourhood Weekender, TRNSMT, Isle Of Wight and This Is Tomorrow Festivals

Enduring a tumultuous upbringing in foster care, Dylan was not given much encouragement to pick up a guitar in the first place. It’s a talent nurtured through despondency and resilience, a lad made of sterner stuff.

Over the course of the forthcoming EP, Dylan makes a habit of telling his story in the most propulsive and colourful of ways, and whilst his journey might appear already a few chapters in, really this is just the start.
