Born on the south side of Chicago in the Chicago Lawn/Englewood area, he is a self-taught musician that is an accomplished pianist, guitarist, bassist, and drummer. There is simply one word to describe this up-and-coming artist...original. When you hear his music, it beckons you to listen to

The music that he creates attracts people from all walks of life. Lloyd's musical influences are Michael Jackson, Ben Folds, Prince, Thelonious Monk, and Dave Grohl (to name a few). At the age of 15, he became the lead vocalist and piano player of a very popular local band on the south side of Chicago known as "Pangea", from the year 2002 to 2005. One of their last and most notable performances was at the Rave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin opening up for critically acclaimed band "Medeski, Martin, and Wood" in December of 2005.
By early spring of 2006, Pangea had disbanded; from that point on Dylan Lloyd had began pursuing a solo music career. He has performed at the "North Halsted Market Day Festival" in Chicago (one of the largest outdoor festivals in the nation) in August of 2006 and 2007. He has also performed at Millennium Park in the "Great Performers of Illinois" sponsored by the city of Chicago and Richard M. Daley in September of 2006.

He will also be on "WINDY CITY RECORDS" (an independent Chicago record label) annual compilation disk in the summer of 2008 and is currently working on his first full length solo album with "Ron Prince Studios" in Chicago. "Music is life that lives forever. If the only thing that I can do in this world is take one person out of an everyday life of misery, heartache, anxiety, frustration, and any other drama that goes along with our daily lives...for just a few minutes...then I truly will feel like I am doing the best that I possibly can to help bring joy to other people's lives; even when they may be having a hard time finding it on their own." - Dylan Lloyd
