My name is Dylan McCormick Moran. I have been playing Drums since the age of 4.
I come from a very musical family , with both my Mother and Father playing at a professional level.
Currently I am proudly endorsed By TRX Cymbals , Cympad and Empire Ears. I am also an Ambassador for Destroy A Drum. I am very privileged to have such amazing companies behind me. They allow me to perform at the highest level.
For me Drumming is so much more than playing one genre. I am constantly switching up styles. Samba , Rock , Pop and funk are my favourite genres to play but I try to branch out to as many Genres as possible.I am fortunate enough to be studying with Mark Grist. Mark has been a huge inspiration in my playing. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with him.
As a musician I am constantly in contact with different musicians across the world. I use social media as a way of connecting with other drummers and musicians. On my Instagram (Dylanmmdrummer) you will see multiple Drums series I have created, along with different Drum covers and exercises.
I have been fortunate enough to have got to work with artists and bands from all over the world! My latest project included getting to work with Gabriella Arya through Maxim Records. I recently recorded a series of Ad campaigns for Tom Play. Tom Play has a reach of more that 20,000 followers across all social media outlets
In mid 2019 I won the title of All Ireland Shure Drum Mastery Champion. I went head to head with some of Irelands greatest Drummers. After a month of analyzing videos by Drummers such as Ash Soan, I was eventually chosen as all-Ireland Champion.
Since then I have had the opportunity of meeting and talking to Drummers like Jerrod Sullivan, Simon Santunion, Lester Estelle etc.
I have also been added to the website Irish Drummers which promotes the top Drummers in the country.
Sound Engineer: In 2018 I completed a Sound Engineering course at Windmill Lane Studios, which
is one of the biggest recording studios in Ireland. I worked with Industry experts and I got hands on experience with recording.
Again I have been very lucky, as I have had the opportunity to work with different sound engineers like: Niall McMonagle and Greg Clooney. Both Niall and Greg have recorded for artists like Anne Marie, U2, Snoop Dog etc.
I also have a lot of experience with live sound and special effects for Festivals and event throughout Ireland.
