Musician Of The Week

Name: Dylan Sheppard
Year: Third
Major: Visual Arts
Hometown: Mount Sinai, N.Y.

What’s your instrument of choice and why?

Guitar; because I find it to be the most cathartic.

Who are your biggest influences? 

 I’ve been really into British Electronica lately: guys like Burial, Jamie xx, and James Blake. Their stuff is a lot more subtle than American Electronic, that’s why I like it.

Who have you been listening to lately?

I’ve been really hooked on Moving Mountains’ self-titled lately. Also I‘ve been listening to a lot of the Misfits, White Lung, and Dino Jr. this week.

What’s your plan for the future?

Simply continuing to play music for my own sake, not to impress anyone in particular, but really do it because I enjoy it.

Any advice for aspiring musicians?

Play the music that makes you the happiest. If it makes you happy, I can guarantee it will make other people out there happy
