Dallas Wayde is an American Pop Artist from Salt Lake City, Utah. He released his debut album 'So Young & So Damaged' in early 2018, which brought in just over 300,000 digital streams in the first few months. Connor Brady, of SLUG Magazine, wrote Dallas Wayde sounds like he was created in a lab with the sole intent to design the perfect artist for Top-40 and mainstream radio." Dallas, equipped with a charismatic personality and a stage presence far past his years, describes his music as the crossroads of upbeat melodies meeting emotional lyricism.
After kick-starting his career by winning a national singing competition titled "Kids Star USA" and earning a major label recording contract as a teen, he started gaining his momentum as an artist. From the young age of 13, he's be invited to play nation-wide, varying in settings from The House of Blues to Pride Festivals. In this Dallas found his home is on stage and connecting with fans. . He worked with some big name producers such as Jonas Jeberg and Marlin "Hookman" Bonds who wrote huge songs for artists like; Selena Gomez, Sabrina Carpenter, and Panic! At The Disco. When Dallas turned 17 years old he was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, and he began a struggle with anxiety. As he said in an interview with MIX 105.1 "I felt stuck, you know? It was almost like everyone expected me to be something that I wasn't, but I guess it's hard to tell the difference when you don't really know yourself in the first place." This lead to him taking a break from music and spending some time growing as a person rather than an artist. As he got to know himself and started to build a sense of identity, he used music as his personal outlet instead of just writing what he thought people wanted to hear in a hit song. These songs eventually turned into the album 'So Young & So Damaged' and opened a new chapter of his career. Since then he has opened for big name acts such as Kid Ink, Jesse McCartney, Blackbear and Justin Timberlake!
Dallas Wayde, now 22 years old, has developed a solid team of creative talents that understand his vision. The team is constantly working on creating new content and performing shows around the country, all while transitioning to the next step of their journey. He hopes that what he writes down will resonate with the other youth around the world and he can make them feel a little less crazy, A little less alone, and a little more happy.
