Dylan Healy lives and breathes the arts. He is all at once a musician, booking manager, promoter, record label owner, photographer, and much more. Dylan is certainly a jack of all trades, which is what made him such a great collaborator on our MMH Planning Committee…even if he plays annoying instruments.
What is your instrument(s)? If not a singer/musician, what is your connection to the arts?
Voice, guitar, other string instruments, and annoying things like glockenspiel and melodica.
What do you do other than music/the arts – professionally? Hobbies?
Outside of all things music, I’m really into mid-mod furniture. I’m also trying to get better at cooking– I just learned how to properly roast a squash and it changed my life.
What drew you to MMH?
What drew me is how passionate Amanda and the team are about bringing the arts to everyone.
