Discover our interview with Diemondy and listen to "Knock Off"

We are always excited to receive tracks that we can’t label or place in a specific box. We think this kind of artistic behaviour will save music and help it go further.  

Hard hitting Pop/Rock Staple from Tampa Bay, Florida currently ripping a giant HOLE in the Pop music world. Seasoned with shows for almost a decade all over Central Florida and more. Now residing in Los Angeles, California where Diemondy continually shreds music scenes to pieces with his in-your-face-esque upbeat pieces, to leaving your tears on the club floor with his melodic, sincere ballads, and somehow he still has the whole crowd jumping through the entirety of the Diemondy set. You’ve heard of Diemondy, but seeing the super force LIVE is a whole different level of energy. Diemondy will leave you wanting more and more.

From the first note, we were surprised and impressed by the artist’s flow and vocal tone. Haunting and unique, the performance is never-heard-before and proves that Diemondy  knows how to reinvent himself artistically.

We had the pleasure to discuss with Diemondy, discover our interview with him right now:

1- Great to have you on our blog. Please, introduce yourself?

I’m Dylan, but you can call me Diemondy. It’s like a play on words (laughs). “Diamond D” for Dylan (laughs). I used to go by Dyl Diamond.

2- What got you into music and made you realize that it was your chosen path?

My dad used to always play Punk music in the car. It was a small Saturn POS (laughs). But he got me into Blink-182, Alkaline Trio, stuff like that and I instantly fell in love with that shit. Further down in life I got really into Pop music and and rap and all that but everything I do no matter what, has those first influences.

3- Tell us about your new Album. And what’s the story behind it?

Well, it’s very versatile. It has a lot of different rock elements, as well as rap and pop. All types of different stuff. But it’s called Dying My Best Life because I was living the biggest lie of my life for years trying to be this person who was hype, happy, energetic and “hard” but really that was just never me. So I felt like I was dying inside with every word I was saying. I almost sold my soul to the small amount of clout I got playing a character. I’m so much more secure of myself and sure of myself now that I know who I am and am actively being that person.

4- What makes your music unique? How would you describe it?

My music is unique because you almost wanna hate it, because of how corny it can be, but it’s so real and so well produced and written, ya just can’t. It’s so differently generic if that makes any sense at all. (laughs)

5- What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

Good question. Sometimes I feel like I’m still looking for advice and it’s never bad TO be looking for advice. My advice to aspiring to musicians is to TAKE ADVICE. I don’t care what it is or how it’s relayed to you. Take it. And think about it and make changes based on your personal opinion on the advice. No advice is bad advice if you know how to manipulate advice.

6- Who are your biggest musical influences? And any particular artist/band you would like to collaborate with in the future?

Well I’d love to work with Mod Sun and Matt Skiba/Alkaline Trio one day, but lately I’ve been trying to listen to my own music as much as possible. So whatever I listened to before writing those songs, I guess. (Laughs)

7- If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

Be yourself. If you think you already are think again. Think about it long and fluently. Be in this moment. Be present.

8- What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?
