In early 2017, Tilkin burst onto the Instagram scene with his unique and inventive multi-cam covers of major pop songs. He quickly gained 100K followers and since has added to his extremely loyal and dedicated fanbase.
In August of that year, Tilkin dropped his debut single, “DAYDREAMIN.” To date, the track has surpassed 2.4+ million streams on Spotify, charted in 10 countries, and the accompanying music video has over 285k plays. “Daydreamin” was created by Tilkin’s team, which includes Aaron Hagan (Vocal producer for Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor, and Selena Gomez) and Ryan Summer (Engineer/producer for Flo Rida, Jason Derulo, and Daniel Skye).
His follow up single, “SOMETHING TO HOLD ON TO,” a soaring ballad showcasing his development as a songwriter, released February 13, 2018 in conjunction with Bonne Magazine for New York Fashion Week. The track has 750k+ streams and the accompanying video has 98k+ views.
Originally from Boca Raton, Florida, Tilkin’s distinct vocal style blends his love of virtuosic greats like Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson with pop acts like The Jonas Brothers, One Direction and Ed Sheeran.
“I want to be able to do for others what my heros have done for me: write songs that give words to those who can’t find the right ones to say,” says Tilkin. “Write songs that make people feel seen, heard, and understood. Create music that helps people feel less alone in this world. Give people a soundtrack to their lives. The bigger I become as an artist, the more people I can impact and help. Even if it’s just by giving someone the song they have their first kiss to, that matters to me.”
