Dylan Hoskins’ musical journey began on the Mid-North Coast of NSW, heavily influenced by the jazz of the 1930’s to 1950’s period.
From his late teens to his early 20’s Dylan worked his way into more contemporary folk and pop music and – once at the Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA) under the guidance of both Nathaniel Andrew and Maria Lurighi – began refining his musical palette, influenced by the timeless recordings of Donny Hathaway, Al Jarreau and Kurt Elling.
In recent years Dylan has had the opportunity to perform as a vocalist at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Suncorp Stadium alongside Jessica Mauboy, on stage with Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu and at the Queensland Poetries “David Bowie and Prince” tribute concert – all during his time at ACPA, where he completed a four year Advanced Diploma.
He is currently studying for a Bachelor of Contemporary Music in Jazz and Pop vocals at the Tasmanian Conservatorium of Music in Hobart. Seen as soulful and eccentric Dylan currently performs principally as a cover artist with the primary components of Soul, Jazz and Gospel.
