Sony Music Nashville has signed rising singer-songwriter Dylan Marlowe in conjunction with Play It Again Entertainment.
To celebrate, Marlowe debuted a new track, “Record High,” which he wrote alongside Zach Abend, Abram Dean, and Tyler Collins.
“One night it was super late and my roommate tossed out the phrase ‘record high,’” Marlowe shares of the track. “We started writing right then and kinda flipped what you normally think of when you think of a record high, and wrote it in a negative sense about a breakup in the absolute worst way it could be done. I’m so proud of how everything came together for this song. It’s for sure one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written.”
Hailing from Statesboro, Georgia, Marlowe moved to Nashville just before the start of the pandemic. He signed a publishing and artist development deal with hit songwriter and publisher Dallas Davidson’s Play It Again Entertainment in 2020, and began to pick up steam online after a cover of Olivia Rodrigo’s “Driver’s License” went viral on TikTok. The enthusiasm surrounding the track prompted him to release it to streaming services, followed by his own tunes such as “All About It,” “I’ll Keep The Country,” and his most recent track, “Why’d We Break Up Again.”
Marlowe, who was recently named to Spotify’s 2023 Hot Country Artists to Watch list, recently earned his first No. 1 as a songwriter with Jon Pardi’s “Last Night Lonely.” He also recently spent some time opening for Cole Swindell out on the road.
