Underground Artist of the Month for September 2022


Dylan Sinclair, a 19- year old R&B singer/songwriter from Toronto, started honing his voice in the church at the young age of 4. He began recording music and writing by age 15 after realizing that performing was just one of his many talents. In 2018, Sinclair released his first independent project titled “Red Like Crimson,” which caught enough attention to fill a room of over 200 for his first concert in Toronto. Since Dylan discontinued his university studies to put all of his energy into his music, he has released numerous singles, including ‘Lifetime’ and ‘Open,’ which came out earlier this year.

He has since released a debut album titled Proverb, which was nominated for a Juno Award for Traditional R&B/Soul recording of the year in 2021. He credits Korean karaoke as a massive influence on his sound. He hopes to become the next household name in R&B music.
