Who is Dilan Jay?

Dilan Jay Photoshoot

Dilan Jay (formerly known as DeLon) is a dynamic singer-songwriter, rapper, producer & guitarist based in Los Angeles. Dilan previously led a successful rapping career under the name “DeLon”. This, however, came to a screeching halt after tragedy struck.

Following the devastating Easter Sunday bombings in his home country of Sri Lanka, Dilan decided to take this opportunity to rebuild his life, rather than let it tear him down. When he told others of his new musical direction, he was mocked for wanting to transition into a more honest & emotive songwriter. Armed with just a pen and a glimmer of hope, he moved to Los Angeles where he studied at the ICMI, challenging himself to further his career and learn guitar.

His positive mindset and perseverance led him to become the first-ever Sri Lankan artist to place on the US Billboard Chart & to reach the #1 spot on MTV’s Most Popular Music Videos. Dilan has come a far way, having now secured six #1 hits, 6 albums, and collaborated with various prominent producers including Ty Dolla $ign. Additionally, doing large performances at gigs including SXSW. Dilan never forgot his roots, which has ultimately earned him the honorable title ‘King Of Ceylon’ by his followers. This success indicates we haven’t heard the last of him!
