Going through significant changes can be a very challenging time for everyone. After all, it entails making huge adjustments and venturing into an unknown environment. Talented young woman, Dylan Hoffman is no stranger to this experience. However, she soon realized that on the flip side, change is needed, as it helps one grow and evolve.
The seventeen-year-old singer-songwriter grew up in Eastvale, California. Seeing her passion for music and performing at an early age, her highly supportive parents immediately got her into vocal and guitar lessons.
From there, the gifted musician continuously honed her craft. She even wrote her first song at eleven years old, together with two of her cousins. All of them formed the group KDM, where they booked several live gigs for various occasions.
Everything was going well for Dylan; however, her life had a sudden detour when she was twelve. Her family relocated to Brock, Texas, where she now resides. The move was not easy for the girl as she felt like the odd one out. She even recalled being the new girl at junior high who was trying her best not to stick out more than she already did.
Nevertheless, the passionate young woman persevered. She also found an excellent guitar mentor who showed her a different outlook on live music. As it turns out, the move to Texas has been a step in the right direction in terms of her music career.
Looking back at her memories, Dylan shared, “By moving to Texas, I was introduced to a new live music scene where I could sing on my own and get paid for it. However, it wasn’t until a couple of years later, when I met a friend at fourteen, that we formed a duo and booked our first gig. I remember the excitement and the newness of it all. It was my second start in the music industry, and ever since then, I continued down the path, booking gigs at local restaurants and bars on the weekends. It was a great job for a teenager to have as I got paid well, and I enjoyed doing it.”
As a testament to her newfound success, the artist released her first single, “If I Was Gone,” when she was only fifteen. She wrote and recorded the track by herself, which talks about the pain of falling out with a friend.
Aside from pursuing her passion for music, the remarkable student is also active in other art forms. In fact, she is a self-proclaimed theatre nerd who has participated in a UIL competitive theatre class.
Despite her young age, Dylan Hoffman has shown immense strength and character. With her incredible wisdom and unrivaled musical prowess, it would not come as a surprise when she one day becomes a massive name in the mainstream music industry.
For now, the dedicated girl plans to continue her studies and pursue a business degree with a minor in acting. She also has no plans to put her music career on hold and intends to write new music consistently. Above all, she is dedicating her weekends for gigs to earn extra income and gain more exposure.
