Canadian rhythm and blues singer and songwriter from Toronto Dylan Sinclair is back with new single and music video “Suppress” via The Orchard
Dylan says, “A weak man will make a girl feel insecure,” shares Sinclair on the greater meaning behind the personal track. “This song is an acknowledgement of where I can fall short in my relationship and where I aim to do better. It’s me showing so much empathy because I understand how hard it could be to be with someone in my position. As a man, I want to be reassuring of the fact that – yeah, there’s all these girls around – but it’s you.”
The song has Toronto native’s signature smooth vocals backed by a fresh production by Jordon Manswell, Zachary Simmonds, and Jonathan Martin.
Sinclair is gearing up for the release of his new EP via Five Stone Records. The coming-of-age record finds Dylan stepping into himself and transitioning from teenager to young adult – remaining grounded, authentic, and aware that this is just the beginning.
Sinclair began writing and recording at age 15 and issued his debut indie record, Red Like Crimson, in 2018 that caught the attention of GRAMMY and JUNO Award-nominated Toronto producer Jordon Manswell (Daniel Caesar, Mariah Carey, Chris Brown). In 2020, the duo collaborated on their first effort, Proverb, which garnered them a highly coveted nomination for Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of The Year at the 2021 JUNO Awards and has accumulated 25 million streams to date.
In 2021, Dylan joined forces with Motown Records’ new signee Emanuel on “Hindsight” his song “Ask Me” was featured on the CW show “The Republic of Sarah.”
Dylan also embarked on his first-ever songwriting trip, working on new music with GRAMMY Award-winning producers, artists, and songwriters like Boi-1da (Drake, Rihanna, Eminem, Cardi B), Marcus Semaj (Giveon, Snoh Aalegra, James Fauntleroy), Joyce Wrice, and more who are invigorated by Sinclair’s fresh take on R&B music.
