20-year-old singer/songwriter Dylan Brady is ready to leave his mark on country music with the release of his breakup anthem, “Over Us.”
Blurring the lines between pop and country, “Over Us” was written from the perspective of someone who is ready to move on from a relationship but can’t quite shake the thought of saying goodbye forever.
Brady, who moved to Nashville from New York in 2016, co-wrote the song alongside Jared Scott and writer/producer Andy Sheridan.
“When we sat down to write this, it was the first time we’d all gotten together, so we started with an idea I had a few years back: you’re over the relationship but miss the little things about the person,” Brady explains. “Immediately each of us could recall that one relationship that wasn’t meant to be, but it still was better when you had someone.”
Lyrics like, “Even though I know we ain’t meant to be, you’re on my mind/So I wonder why, why I’m…I’m so over us… Oh I’m so over us/ Girl I’m so long over us/ But I’ll never be over you” find Brady confessing that he still longs for his ex, even after their split.
With a sound that’s a bit reminiscent of Dan + Shay and Rascal Flatts, Brady has already caught the attention of Zac Brown Band and Rascal Flatts’ guitarist Joe Don Rooney. When industry veteran Barry Weiss was introduced to Brady, he immediately signed him to his Sony joint-venture, RECORDS LLC.
Dylan Brady’s “Over Us” is available now in partnership with Riser House/Columbia Records.
