Bob Dylan's Grandson Levi Is One Very Handsome Model
Huffington Post - about 1 month
It’s not uncommon for the children and grandchildren of celebrities to pursue similar paths as their famous relatives. And it appears that model Levi Dylan, son of Jakob Dylan and grandson of Bob Dylan, is anything but a wallflower.  The younger Dylan walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall/Winter 2017 fashion show in Milan on Tuesday, looking downright babely in a double-breasted jacket, a pair of glasses and buckled shoes.  Dylan told The Cut back in August 2016 that he wouldn’t do runway work because “those guys are really tall,” but changed his tune to walk alongside other famous offspring like Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s son Brandon Lee, Jude Law’s son Rafferty and Cindy Crawford’s son, Presley Gerber. The show is not the 22-year-old’s first foray into the modeling world. Dylan has posed for Wonderland Magazine and Vogue Italia, crediting his photographer girlfriend Alana O’Herlihy with introducing him to the industry. He has also appeared at Fashion Week be ...

Talent certainly runs in this family!  Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow’s son, Moses, and daughter, Apple, recently performed with their father at a charity function in Malibu.  Wearing a white shirt and gray sweatpants, Apple (aka the spitting image of her actress mom) sang “Just A Little Bit of Your Heart” by Ariana Grande. The 12-year-old started off the performance with a laugh as her dad started playing notes on the piano, then she blew the audience away with a sweet, powerful performance.  Apple and Chris Martin #backyardconcert #applemartin #malibu @debbiefrank you are a rock star!✨ @atlas_project A video posted by Loriann Stevenson Design (@loriannstevenson) on Oct 22, 2016 at 10:41pm PDT It’s clear she inherited some of her dad’s singing skills (and her mother’s, too ― Paltrow showed off her chops in the movie “Country Strong”).  Ten-year-old Moses also took his turn at the mic, belting out Twenty One Pilots’ “House of Gold” while his ...

Carole King MusiCares Tribute Attracts James Taylor, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga And More A-Listers
Huffington Post - about 3 years
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Carole King's gift as a songwriter is all about connection — friends, lovers, strangers experiencing deep emotions not often exposed to each other. Over the decades, King has made that connection with untold millions of fans. Some of those fans came out to honor the songwriter as MusiCares person of the year Friday night as part of the build up to Sunday's Grammy Awards. Among them, lifelong friend James Taylor, Gloria Estefan, Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga, who thanked King for getting her through some difficult years before she found fame as a songwriter herself. Gaga told the crowd she used to lock herself in her father's man room as a high school student and listen to "You've Got a Friend" over and over. "And I would crank up this song so loud," Gaga said as she sat at a white baby grand piano in the center of the room wearing steampunk sunglasses and a flowing white dress. "And I really believed so much, Carole, that you were my friend. So thank you so much for t ...

"Love Is A Country": A Heartfelt Playlist For Valentine's Day
The Huffington Post - about 4 years
"There are more love songs than anything else," Frank Zappa once pointed out. "If songs could make you do something, we'd all love one another." Frank was right, but I remain a sucker for a great song about L-O-V-E, and my favorite this year is "Love Is A Country" by The Wallflowers, a song from Jakob Dylan that's more poetic and profound than it is romantic. I absolutely LOVE this song, and suggest everyone take a moment to fall in love with it too. Here then is my own heartfelt Valentine's Day playlist for 2013. I've included a few suggestions from a few of the lovers and other strangers who follow me at www.twitter.com/Wildaboutmusic.

Huffington Post - over 4 years
More than a 1,000 people attended Frack Free Colorado, a star-studded concert and rally in Denver, Co this Tuesday afternoon to draw attention to the dangers of fracking in the state. The event, which took place across from the State Capitol, was sponsored by a coalition of businesses, non-profits, environmental leaders, and celebrities, including Daryl Hannah, The Wallflowers' Jakob Dylan, Mariel Hemingway, race car driver and environmentalist, Leilani Munter, and acclaimed author and ecologist, Sandra Steingraber. Featured prominently in the Emmy Award winning documentary, Gasland, the state of Colorado has 48,000 fracked wells, with no end in sight. According to the Colorado Oil and Gas Commission, there are more than 5,000 documented spills of toxic fracking water, many of which have contaminated rivers and drinking water sources.

Celebrities Sing Together During Colorado Fracking Rally
Huffington Post - over 4 years
DENVER (AP) — A rally organized by opponents of hydraulic fracturing drew about 200 people to Denver's Civic Center Park on Tuesday night. Jakob Dylan of The Wallflowers, actress Daryl Hannah and others ended the four-hour Frack Free Colorado rally by singing "Stand By Me" on stage together. Co-organizer Allison Wolff said the roughly $45,000 rally was meant to push for the acceleration of clean-energy alternatives and to educate the public on what Wolff called the dangers of hydraulic fracturing. The process involves blasting water, sand and chemicals underground to free oil and natural gas. Energy In Depth, the research arm of the Independent Petroleum Association of America, countered that fracking is safe and that both Republicans and Democrats have said U.S. natural gas production supports jobs and the nation's energy security. The rally was modeled after a similar Songs Against Drilling event ...

Kristi York Wooten: The Wallflowers' 'Glad All Over': 'It Was About the Band Trusting One Another'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Jakob Dylan has a sense of humor. "I want to tell you, you've had it coming," he sings atop the funky bass line in "Reboot the Mission," the Clash-y first single from The Wallflowers' new album, Glad All Over, out October 9. And maybe he's right. Who's to say a rootsy, straight-up rock band can't end a seven-year hiatus and go disco for a minute? "Oh God, is Dylan fronting Maroon 5 or something? Ick," one YouTube commenter jabbed when the groovy "Reboot" video began making the rounds back in July. The rest of us? We put on our boogie shoes and sang the irresistible chorus along with Dylan and Clash co-founder Mick Jones: "Eyes on the prize/reboot the mission/I lost my sight/but not the vision." "You can lose the plot a little bit," Dylan tells me of the ups and downs in The Wallflowers' 23-year history, which includes six albums, a pair of Grammy awards, a Greatest Hits CD, multiple lineup changes and a solo detour. "There were people in and around the group ...

Nicki Minaj, Glen Campbell, Wilco among L.A.'s top summer concerts
LATimes - over 4 years
Southern California’s summer pop music calendar includes Hard Summer, Make Music Pasadena and Rock the Bells festivals. Nicki Minaj. Skrillex. Glen Campbell’s goodbye tour. Wilco. Some big names in pop are coming to Southern California this summer, promising a decent warm-weather season and the extension of a concert year that already has promoters singing. Last month, promotion giant Live Nation, which also operates Ticketmaster, reported a 6% increase in ticket sales for the first quarter of 2012 compared with the same period last year -- no doubt due to a spring that has seen Bruce Springsteen, Van Halen, the Beach Boys and Roger Waters touring; the Beverly Hills-based company also just promoted three sold-out Coldplay shows at the Hollywood Bowl. With artists such as Justin Bieber and Madonna not making it out West until the fall, the year’s blockbuster tours would seem to conveniently miss L.A.’s summer months. But music fans still have a lot to celebrate this summer. Th ...

    Age 43
    Aside from work with the Wallflowers, Dylan has played a key role of several other projects recently. In early 2013 Dylan, along with Dave Matthews, Charlie Sexton, Brady Blade, and Sexton's brother Will, wrote and recorded an album in Shreveport, Louisiana as a new band called The Nauts.

The Wallflowers recorded their sixth studio album, Glad All Over in Nashville, Tennessee in early 2012. Shortly before entering the studio, the band replaced drummer Fred Eltringham with Jack Irons. The writing process was different for this album than previous Wallflowers albums; instead of Dylan bringing in completed songs, he brought only lyrics to the studio and as a band, they wrote the music for the songs. The Wallflowers toured throughout the summer and fall of 2012. Glad All Over was released on October 9, 2012 on Columbia Records. In the spring of 2013, the Wallflowers did an arena tour opening for Eric Clapton.

    More Details Hide Details Women + Country had a decidedly fuller sound than Seeing Things, thanks to the horns, pedal steel and fiddle that were prominently featured throughout the album. Burnett also brought in Neko Case and Kelly Hogan to contribute background vocals on eight of the album's eleven songs. After releasing an EP version of the album earlier that year, Women + Country was released on April 6, 2010 on Columbia Records. The album was met with generally favorable reviews and peaked at No.12 on the Billboard 200; the highest position any of Dylan's albums – solo or with the Wallflowers – had peaked since the Wallflowers' 1996 breakthrough album, Bringing Down the Horse.
    In 2009, Dylan visited former Wallflowers producer T Bone Burnett at a studio where Burnett was producing the soundtrack for the film Crazy Heart.

    Age 37
    In September 2007, it was reported by The New York Times that Dylan was recording his first solo album at producer, Rick Rubin's home in the Hollywood Hills.
    More Details Hide Details Regarding its sparse instrumentation and production, Dylan described the differences in the writing process for Seeing Things, compared to writing for the Wallflowers: Following the completion of recording in 2007, Seeing Things was released on June 10, 2008. The album received generally favorable reviews and peaked at No.24 in the U.S. on the Billboard 200.

  • 2005
    Age 35
    In 2005, Dylan spoke about his relationship with his father for the first time in an interview with The New York Times.
    More Details Hide Details Due to the fact that Dylan rarely speaks about his father, there have been ongoing rumors that their relationship is strained. Dylan rebuffed these claims, speaking of his father as "affectionate" towards him and went on to say the two have a "great relationship." In May 2011, Dylan was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from Idaho State University. Dylan is a supporter of Diabetes awareness and was given a Father of the Year award from the American Diabetes Association on June 4, 2014.

    Dylan began writing for the Wallflowers' fourth album, Red Letter Days in 2001.
    More Details Hide Details The band recorded demos while on tour with John Mellencamp that year before getting into the studio in Santa Monica, California. Due to the absence of a lead guitarist during the recording for Red Letter Days, Dylan took on more lead guitar duties than he had previously. Red Letter Days was produced by founding Wallflowers member Tobi Miller and Bill Appleberry. Following the release of the album's first single, "When You're On Top" on August 16, 2002, Red Letter Days was released on November 5, 2002.

    Age 27
    On June 12, 1997 Dylan was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone.
    More Details Hide Details In the issue's accompanying interview, Dylan spoke at length about his lineage for the first time. After touring for nearly two years, the Wallflowers took a short break before returning to the studio to record their third album, (Breach). Dylan approached the songwriting process differently this time than he had for the Wallflowers' two previous albums, explaining that he didn't want to avoid the subject of his personal life, as he had done in the past: "(Breach) was the first record that I realized that it's necessary and I have a right to write about anything that I want to write about. I'm not going to dance around these subjects anymore... I don't have any interest in writing songs that are defensive or that address anything that don't come naturally to me but I also realized that I needed to stop this nonsense of pretending that hiding any of this information counts to anybody; it just doesn't really matter anymore."
    They also opened for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in January 1997, as well as for The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan in November 1997.

  • 1994
    Age 24
    The band continued to play club shows in Los Angeles until early 1994 when Yanowitz left the band to join 10,000 Maniacs, then fronted by his girlfriend, Natalie Merchant.
    More Details Hide Details Following Yanowitz's departure, the Wallflowers caught the attention of Tom Whalley and Jimmy Iovine of Interscope Records, who signed the band in 1995. The Wallflowers began recording their second album, Bringing Down the Horse in 1995. Around the time they began recording, however, founding member Tobi Miller left the band. A number of guitarists stepped in to finish the album. Bringing Down the Horse was produced by T Bone Burnett and the songs were written by Dylan. The album was released on May 21, 1996. To promote the release, the band toured extensively through the rest of 1996 and through 1997. The Wallflowers now included drummer, Mario Calire and guitarist Michael Ward, in addition to Dylan, Jaffee and Richling. The band performed shows as headliners, as well as openers for acts such as Sheryl Crow in early 1997 and Counting Crows in the summer of 1997.
  • 1992
    Age 22
    Dylan married his girlfriend Paige, a screenwriter, in 1992.
    More Details Hide Details The couple have four sons together and live in Los Angeles.
  • 1991
    Age 21
    In 1991, the Wallflowers began recording their debut album. Dylan wrote the songs and the album was recorded live in the studio with minimal to no-overdubbing. The Wallflowers' eponymous debut was released on August 25, 1992.
    More Details Hide Details The album was met with mostly positive reviews but did not do well, commercially, with a reported 40,000 copies sold. Despite low sales, the Wallflowers began touring nationwide, mostly as an opening act, for several bands including the Spin Doctors and 10,000 Maniacs. Upon return from a tour in 1993, the band learned that management at Virgin had shifted, leading to the removal of Jeff Ayeroff and Jordan Harris, who signed the Wallflowers to the label. The new executives at Virgin were not pleased with the Wallflowers' slow sales and the band did not feel they had a future with the label, so they asked to be released from their contract; Virgin complied and by the end of the year, the Wallflowers were left without a label. The band went back to playing clubs in Los Angeles and looking for a new label. During this time, the band went through a number of personnel changes. In 1993, Maguire was asked to leave for undisclosed reasons. However, the band would continue playing shows with another bass player, Jimmie Snider, until May 1993, when the band found a permanent replacement. Greg Richling, whom Dylan went to high school with, became the band's new bassist. Richling remained a member of the Wallflowers for the next two decades, until he left in 2013.
