Dylan Lloyd, the only American singer/songwriter to be invited to “Crimea Music Fest”- The First International Music Festival which will be held from September 6 through September 10, 2011 in Yalta (the AR of Crimea, Ukraine). The Crimea Music Fest will give young performers from all over the world a unique opportunity to present bright spectacular international talent and will gather a galaxy of show business persons on the Black Sea coast. The First International Music Festival of Crimea will unite creative people from different corners of the Earth to this region – a symbolic 7th continent, where creativity and inspiration reign. All of us are so different, but human emotions , feelings, and the universal love of music makes us good friends due to our intenational connections. The Crimea Music Fest is held with the support of the Supreme Council and the Cabinet of Ministers of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. “Krymfest” Ltd. is the organizer.
Dylan Lloyd is the only American to have been personally selected by Alla Pugacheva, art director of Crimea Music Fest and the inspirer of the International Songwriting Contest. Dylan was personally invited to the festival due to his recent June 2011 single release of “ We Are The Same,” (available on iTunes). The Prima Donna; who discovered and supported many talented artists, carefully examined musical materials received from all over the world. Summarizing the results of the selection, Alla Pugacheva noted: “I think that it’s for the first time our listeners and spectators will see such a variety of styles and genres in the framework of one festival. Every participant represents a unique, inimitable history of his or her country and culture... I hope that familiarity with these many voices will give a real joy to each co’participant of the Crimea Music Fest.”
Dylan Lloyd’s music career officially began at the age of 15 in Chicago, Illinois. Being dubbed by NBC as "Englewood's Music Prodigy" was a lot to live up to as a young singer/songwriter and instrumentalist. After many gigs in the Mid-West at venues such as "The Rave", "Millennium Park", "Kinetic Playground", and media attention from NBC, and The Chicago Tribune, he lived up to the hype and caught the attention of Jonathan Stone. Now at 23 years of age, Dylan Lloyd and his talent have been rewarded a music publishing deal with Stone's Radar Music Publishing.
In December of 2009, Dylan Lloyd signed a music publishing deal with "RADAR MUSIC, LLC/BUG MUSIC, INC.".

Lloyd is swiftly making his way up the ranks as one of the best and most respected singer/songwriters in the music business. Especially, with his most recent single release “We Are The Same” which is garnering critical acclaim! "Music is life that lives forever. If the only thing that I can do in this world is take one person out of a daily cycle of misery, heartache, anxiety, frustration, and any other drama that goes along with our life...for just a few minutes...then I truly will feel like I am doing the best that I possibly can to help bring joy to people's lives." - Dylan Lloyd
