The already rising Glaswegian singer-songwriter Dylan John Thomas is shaping up to make a major impact in 2022, having recently inspired rambunctious scenes with a sold-out homecoming headline show at Glasgow’s Barrowland and seen his latest single ‘Fever’ spotlighted by The Line of Best Fit. Now Dylan is Under The Spotlight in the latest video from menswear specialists scotts after they documented Jamie Webster’s first ever trip to SXSW.
Shot in the Film Shed in East London, the Under The Spotlight video shows Dylan sporting a selection of looks from Columbia’s summer 2022 collection, including t-shirts, jackets and gilets – all of which are available from scotts’ Columbia catalogue. The video is boosted by its soundtrack, Dylan’s fan favourite and live staple ‘Jenna’, as well as striking Columbia logo projections and the quirky industrial interior of the film shed.
Based in Portland, Oregon, Columbia Sportswear is a global outdoor brand that crafts active lifestyle gear fortified with industry-leading technologies that are tested in their local environment. The company’s apparel, footwear, and accessories reflect its Pacific Northwest heritage and indomitable spirit, and is particularly popular within the UK’s current youth culture scene.
Dylan’s current single ‘Fever’ is the first taste of his upcoming second EP, which is the follow-up to his self-titled debut which was released last autumn. His handful of first singles have already been rewarded with airplay from BBC Introducing, Radio X and 6 Music. His ever-growing organic fanbase has already seen him sell-out Glasgow’s King Tut’s quicker than any other debuting artist in the venue’s history, while his rise has been supported with the mentorship of Gerry Cinnamon as well as shows with Sam Fender, Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics.
More touring highlights are now on the agenda for Dylan, including Glastonbury, TRNSMT, and Dundee’s Summer Sessions as guest to Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
