DYLAN GLATTHORN is a two-time Alan Menken Award-winning composer and lyricist. His music has been described by the New York Times as “assured” with the “steaminess and drive of Janacek” and the “harmonic allure” of Debussy. He currently resides in Brooklyn.
Dylan has written music for dozens of critically-acclaimed and award-winning films, as well as for brands like Nickelodeon, Oakley, Red Bull, Alessi, and PBS. For his work in film, he has been awarded the Clive Davis Award for Excellence in Music in Film as well as Best Original Score at the First Run Film Festival. He has composed numerous original musical scores for Orange Grove Dance including REMNANTS (Premiere: The Terrace Theater @ The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.) and Leaning Toward the Sky (commissioned by the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C.). Other commissions include those from the International Double Reed Society, PUBLIQuartet, the Quintet of the Americas, and Cadillac Moon Ensemble. Other awards and honors include the 2019 New Hampshire Theatre Award for Best Sound Design, 2018 Mainstage Residency & 2017 Greenhouse Residency at Andy’s Summer Playhouse, the 2013 Metlife Creative Connections Grant, and the 2011 & 2007 Alan Menken Awards. He was also the winner of the 2011 Skirball Film Scoring Competition.
His original musicals include: Edison, Republic (both O’Neill National Music Theater Conference finalists), Bittersweet Lullaby and The Way It Goes. Last year, Diana DeGarmo‘s GEMINI: Vol. 1, a country-meets-neo-burlesque album with all songs written by DeGarmo and Glatthorn, was released by Mailboat Records. The two are collaborating again, and GEMINI: Vol. 2 is slated for a release later this year.
Additional projects include music direction and orchestrations for numerous cabaret productions including “A Shining Hour” starring Alexa Green (released on Broadway Records as So Good, named “Best New Solo Recording of 2016” by Broadwayworld.com), “LIT: A Modern Broad” starring Janine DiVita, “Once In Love” starring Amy Toporek, “Introducing Victoria Cook” (all at Feinstein’s/54 Below), “A Brass Act” starring Michelle Dowdy (Feinstein’s/54 Below, Metropolitan Room), and the “Canteen” series (Laurie Beechman Theatre).
