We had the good fortune of connecting with D!llon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi D!llon, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I just knew that there were so many ways that I could navigate through the music industry snd I didn’t want to keep my outlets limited. So starting my business D!llon was a big move and was always in the works. I just knew that I could have multiple outlets and way to accommodate and create myself and build my brand into more than just music.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
First off. My music can not be put in a box. It’s one of a kind genre blending, storytelling, lyrical and emotional.
Every single one of my songs and projects all come from a real place and a real story behind it. A lot of it being pain, so coming with that. It’s an outlet for me. The fact that I can release my pain into my music snd not only heal myself with it but touch someone else and resonate that in them as well. Man that connection is powerful snd it’s what drives me to push harder!
I’ve battled a vascular disease for years that had me in such a bad place last year I didn’t even know if I would see this carry on. Fighting through the surgeries, recovery snd I’m still not fully better but as I always say. As long as my heart has a beat in it, I will continue to follow its rhythm.
I encourage anyone going through the dark, battling mental illness, snd even physical illness to keep pushing! Never give up and truly know that you are not alone in this!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I absolutely love deep ellum, the arts district, here in Dallas TX. We could start our first night and go grab a drink and an amazing jalapeño jam burger at the one and only holy grail pub in Plano Tx, one of my personal favorite places to eat and hangout. Then go down into Dallas and catch a couple shoes at the doors in deep ellum and maybe even a show at the green elephant in Uptown. Followed by that I highly recommend checking out the galleria and other shopping areas around Dallas and DFW! and the food. Yes it’s true. Dallas is known for amazing food! So many great restaurant, pubs, bars, diners, and food trucks! Another great place to enjoy your day is Klyde Warren Park. Great place to be outdoors and have some fun and enjoy the city! And then of course we would have to go hang out in the studio with me and my engineer Tru Da Produk. You can’t come to Dallas and not visit MJMRecordingStudios!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
