Dylan Meek Neurolux Boise
A seventh generation Texan, from a family of glass artists, literature professors, psychologists, and rocket engineers, Dylan was raised in Wimberley, TX, and by the age of 6 had taught himself to play blues and boogie woogie piano. • Growing up in a small town in the Texas hill country called Wimberley. At 14, the Harlem piano master Jimmy Neeley (1926-2014 - who played with Charlie Parker, Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Etta Jones, Bo Diddley, Lionel Hampton, Little Richard, Big Joe Turner, Dave Brubeck, Willis Gator Jones, etc) took him in as a protege, passing along nearly a century of wisdom and music. "Dylan, the young lion, has that gift. I want him to play loose, never the same thing twice. I don't want him to be like a clock, tick tock, tick tock” - Jimmy. • At 17, he moved to Boston to live with his brother Buck Meek (Big Thief) and play organ and piano at gospel churches like Grant AME & Good Shepherd. These experiences provided the first inspiration for him to start singing. He then moved to NYC to attend the New School for Jazz, and lived in the city for 7 years, collaborating frequently with legends such as Johnny O’neal (Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Nancy Wilson), Jackie Williams (Stéphane Grappelli, Doc Cheatham, Illinois Jacquet), Reggie Workman (John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk), Jr. Mance (Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young), Lew Soloff (Tito Puente, B,S&T), and Fred Stanton and Benny Powell of the original Duke Ellington Orchestra. • He recorded his first solo album, And When, with Greg Hutchinson (Betty Carter, Roy Hargrove, Ray Brown) and Ben Wolfe (Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall) in 2012, and played thousands of shows around the five boroughs with various artists, including his 17-piece funk band Wet Velvet, and Frequently at Zinc with Victor Jones (Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, Chaka Khan) & Alex Blake (Sun Ra), with whom he recorded the album Time for Class. • Dylan’s friend and collaborator Ray Angry (the Roots, Alicia Keys, Nas, Lauryn Hill, Dr. Dre) helped initiate him into the world of hip hop & production, and connected him with Om’mas Keith, who he went on to collaborate with on several projects (including co-writing “Invincible” with Keith and Aminé for Spiderman - Into the Spider Verse). In 2014 he moved to Los Angeles, and has since played with Post Malone, Quavo, Miguel, The Marias, Theo Katzman, Tiffany Haddish opened for Imagine Dragons on a tour with Grace Vanderwaal, collaborated with Mike Judge for “Tales from the Tour Bus”, and recorded with Questlove. • Since Childhood, Dylan has collaborated with his brother Buck Meek, (guitarist and co-founder of Big Thief), and is featured on Buck’s solo albums Heart Was Beat, Two Saviors, and Haunted Mountain playing piano, pump organ, Synthesizers, and Rhodes.“Dylan Meek shreds to the eleventh degree - Dylan is like James Booker territory, 100%, so good, and it’s interesting to see how he plays within his brother’s music. There’s no soloing, except for one song” - Jolie Holland • Now at 32 years old, with a lifetime's worth of collaboration with so many legends, Dylan dedicates his focus primarily on writing and performing his own original songs, growing a faithful fan base in Los Angeles with his band, touring his music, self-producing and engineering his first all original solo record, All I Need (released 2022), and working on his 2nd self produced album entitled “Love Languages” in hopes to start single release’s the coming year and full record drop Summer of 2024. .
