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’s ‘Intimate Letters'” and the “harmonic allure” of Debussy. He currently resides in New York City.
Dylan has written two full-length musicals: Republic (2011 Eugene O’Neill Musical Theater Conference finalist) and The Way It Goes. His third, Edison, is currently in development. Dylan has music directed and orchestrated numerous cabaret productions including “A Shining Hour” starring Alexa Green (released on Broadway Records as So Good), “Once In Love” starring Amy Toporek, and “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).
Dylan has written music for dozens of critically-acclaimed and award-winning films, as well as for world-renowned brands like Nickelodeon, Oakley, Alessi, and PBS. His music for the short film “Koharubiyori” was awarded Best Original Score at the 2014 First Run Film Festival as well as the 2014 Clive Davis Award for Excellence in Music in Film. He has received commissions from numerous organizations and ensembles including the International Double Reed Society, PUBLIQuartet, the Quintet of the Americas, and the Cadillac Moon Ensemble. Other awards include the 2013 Metlife Creative Connections Grant, 2011 & 2007 Alan Menken Award, Walker’s Rising Stars Scholarship, Al Downing Jazz Association Scholarship, and the Mensa Education and Research Foundation’s Grosswirth-Salny Scholarship.
