Dylan Guthro (born 1991) is a Canadian singer/songwriter based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The son of musician Bruce Guthro, Dylan released his debut album, All That’s True, in 2012.[1] In 2015, Guthro teamed up with fellow Halifax singer-songwriters Carleton Stone and Breagh MacKinnon to form the band Port Cities.[2]

Life and career[edit]

Dylan Guthro was exposed to music since birth as the son of Cape Breton singer/songwriter Bruce Guthro.[3] While on tour with his father, Guthro played some demos he had recorded of his own material to musician Dave Gunning. Gunning was eager to help transform the demos into a full-fledged album. What eventually became All That's True was recorded and mixed over a number of different sessions during the course of six months. Bruce Guthro co-wrote five of the album's songs, and it was not the first time they had collaborated; Dylan had co-written four on Bruce's previous release, No Final Destination.[1]

All That’s True (co-produced by Gunning and Bruce Guthro) was released in 2012. It was called "one of the strongest debut albums" of the year by a music critic in the Prince Edward Island Guardian,and won the Best New Artist Recording of the Year at the Nova Scotia Music Awards in 2012.[4] The album also received a number of placements on the popular Canadian television series, Degrassi: The Next Generation.[5][6] Guthro has toured extensively in Canada, as well as Europe.

Guthro's 2014 release, "Do It All Again," was written with singer/songwriter David Myles, and produced by rapper Classified.[2] The song placed in the finals in the 2015 USA Songwriting Competition in the R&B Category.[7]

Also in 2014, Guthro made his producing debut, when he co-produced singer/songwriter Dave Sampson's debut album, "No Pressure No Diamonds."[8]

Guthro has co-written songs with artists of many different genres, and over the years became more and more involved in working with local hip-hop and EDM artists, resulting in three features on Quake Matthews’ latest album Rap Music.[9] He also had several co-writing credits on Neon Dreams’ album The Last of Us including being featured alongside internationally renowned rapper Waka Flocka Flame on the single "High."

In 2015, Guthro and fellow singer-songwriters Carleton Stone and Breagh MacKinnon united to form the band Port Cities. The band makes singer/songwriter-style pop music featuring both two- and three-part harmonies.[2] They originally met at the Gordie Sampson Songcamp in Cape Breton early in the summer of 2011, and have been playing together as a threesome for a few years before officially becoming a band.[10] The band recorded their debut album in both Cape Breton and Nashville with producer/songwriter Gordie Sampson which was released in February 2017.[11][2][10][12]

In July 2016, Guthro released a self-titled solo urban pop EP, which includes tracks co-written with his two Port Cities bandmates, as well as collaborations with Quake Matthews and members of Neon Dreams.[13][14]
