Dylan Marlowe 'Dirt Road When I Die' EP Review

There are plenty of rising talents in Nashville today, and Dylan Marlowe is certainly one to watch. Not only did the Georgia native release his new EP titled Dirt When I Die today, but he will make his Grand Ole Opry debut on July 9th.

Marlowe is a singer-songwriter with a proven track record. He happened to serve as one of the co-writers on Jon Pardi's number one song "Last Night Lonely." Since moving to Nashville just before the pandemic, Marlowe has gained traction through touring and social media. His songs "All About It," "I'll Keep The Country," and "Why'd We Break Up Again" drew large streaming numbers. After signing a record deal with Sony Music Nashville at the beginning of this year, he released"Record High" which showcased his authentic writing style unlike ever before. Now with his new EP and a spot on HARDY's fall tour, Marlowe might be one of the more talked-about names in Music City.

The first new entry fans are introduced to on the project is "What I Know Now." The soaring melody and tempo take listeners on Marlowe's introspective journey. Everyone can relate to looking back on past decisions and mistakes. Hindsight is always 20/20. He sings, "Wish I could just go back and listen to myself / I wouldn’t be missing her bad, putting myself through hell." This track has all the makings of a down-home country song, and Marlowe's voice sounds as smooth as ever.
