“Carry On” Video Release – Friday, November 3rd

Stoked to release this new Video! As silly of a song it can sound like, it actually holds great meaning for me. One has to brush off the bullshit, remove the negativity and carry on. I did that this summer by doing a little travelling here and there. I went to New York to visit my good friend and take a bite out of the Big Apple, and I played a show in Vancouver and took the long way back, shooting parts of the music video along the way! So fun!

Listen to “Carry On” from my Die Tomorrow album on SPOTIFY or APPLE MUSIC or read along with all the wonderful lyrics with my CD

YYC Music Awards + New Music Video??

Life is beautiful so let’s appreciate it! Life is finite, so don’t stop and wonder why you waited!

September was a crazy busy month and I couldn’t have asked for it to be better. I had my cousin visiting from Germany, I had a couple Award shows to attend, I had a good friend’s wedding to go to, and I played a show with my favourite musician friend SEPTEMBRYO in my favourite Dinosaur town – Drumheller!! (Big Thank you to Neighbours Corner Pub for their Amazing Hospitality .. and Donairs!)

I’m happy to say that my good friend Braeden Riehl and I have been putting in some solid work for my next Music Video! Due out… Soon? I’ll let you know!

So I attended the Western Canadian Music Awards at Breakout West 2017 because my video for UNTOUCHABLE was nominated for “Video Director of the Year”, and unfortunately, I didn’t win….

BUT, I also attended the YYC Music Awards and the same video was nominated for Pop Recording of The Year, Rap/Hip Hop Recording of the year, and Music Video of the Year… and I WON TWO of them! Everything but the Rap/Hip Hop Recording (Shout out to my dude SEVEN for his track “Run It (feat. Merkules)” for the win!)

Here’s my Official picture Proof Awards

Thanks again to everyone who believed in me and the wonderful people who put on the Awards Show!

BRAND NEW COVER VIDEO!

You know those songs that you hear that just somehow resonate immediately? This Kesha song was almost a “Rainbow” in itself, realizing that throughout some of the darkness that I’ve experienced this year, there has been lots of bright, shining colours in my life. My friends and my family have all been there for each other during times of pain and sadness. I’ve really felt the support when people see me mentally and emotionally struggling. My music has taken me to some really cool places this year and I couldn’t be more grateful!

I still have some more videos from my album “Die Tomorrow” coming! I hope this cover can hold you over until then!

I love to sing, rap, and paint. So that’s what I did.

Thank you for sharing!

New Music Video for “Tank Top Jean Shorts”

BAM! It’s here! You might think this is just some simple song about the clothes I casually wear, but it’s actually more about who I am, what I’ve done, and how I fit in. I like to get hype, I like to get nerdy and artsy, I like to rock out and be lyrical, and I like to be comfortable in my own skin and what I’m wearing. I don’t look like your typical rapper and I think that’s okay. I really don’t give a damn if you don’t like my “jorts” or my “muscle shirt”. Haha! This video was fun to make – it started out as a simple “just rap in front of the camera” kinda promo video but I decided to make it something a little more visually unique to match the energy in the song.

Let me know what you think! Please share!

Life Update + VANCOUVER show Friday, August 4th

Getting back into the swing of things… It’s been a crazy past few months to say the least. I had an amazing trip to New York – I had never been before so I did a lot of walking, sightseeing, and eating delicious food. It was so awesome to get away. Thanks a million to my long time/former bandmate/musical collaborator homie Ron Tarrant at SiriusXM for giving me a place to stay and hooking us up with tickets to see our canadian brethren City and Colour live!! Dallas was after my heart that night when he played “What Makes a Man?”.

I still feel like it’s not real, and it likely will never feel real, but on June 27 my dad, the legend, Richard John Roberts, passed away after a short battle with cancer and the toil it took on his body. How I will ever process this, I don’t know. It’s been weird, but also many people have stepped up to be good to me, while others have showed their true selfish colours, when I needed it most. I’m looking forward to taking my Dad on my next adventure… which is…

(psst, before that, if you want to see pictures of the aforementioned events, check out my instagram here –> @therealkingdyl

BUT Vancouver! I’m coming to play around inside you! The Hindenburg with All For The Best, Jaron Chidiac Band, and The Pacific.
