Dylan Schneider and Toad chattin about taking some time off, spending it with family and friends during “the break”, Drake, FGL, Sam Hunt, the country era of 2010 to 2015. Writing Momma’s House, 21 and over… having a balance in life, signing another deal with Broken Bow, touring as a headliner as well as with established bands like FGL in 2019, wanting to head out with some of the bands he looks up to like Dustin Lynch, Kane Brown and Sam Hunt. His writing style, soaking up the surroundings and sharing those stories… the love of performing vs the writing challenge/struggle. This one was fun!

A self-taught visionary, Dylan Schneider first started performing and writing at the age of 14, fearless and skilled far beyond his years. Forging his mark on the Country music community and fans alike with songs such as “Two Black X’s” (2016), “How Does It Sound” (2017), and “How to Country” (2019), Schneider rode a wave of momentum throughout his teens, gaining a devoted fan base and tenacious online following.
Now 22-years-old, he’s amassed a social-media following of 1 million-plus fans, banked nearly 200 million on-demand streams, and has toured alongside superstars like Florida Georgia Line, Granger Smith, Chris Lane, Mitchell Tenpenny and LANCO. And all throughout, Schneider kept the tunes coming, working at an all-out sprint, before COVID-19 stopped him in his tracks. After a forced slowdown due to the pandemic, the Indiana native – now signed to BBR Music Group – is back with a clear perspective, fresh mindset, eager tenacity, and enhanced vision. Taking the pandemic to reset physically and mentally, Schneider hustled, grinded and sharpened his artistry and songwriting. “It was perfect timing for that,” Schneider admits. “I just said ‘It’s time to get some new songs written, and I want that to be the introduction to a new chapter.’ … To me, it’s a revamp and a new beginning.”
With a new team backing him in BBR Music Group, Schneider is better focused and ready to take his career to the next level. He’s an all-around more-complete artist, finding that clarity and a reaffirmed focus makes all the difference. “It’s basically the ideal situation, with all of these puzzle pieces finally coming together,” he explains. “I’m paying more attention to the songs I’m writing, and at 22 years old, I’ve gotten to live more and understand what it’s all about.”
