Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Gardner has spent the last 10 years of his life obsessed with the art of songwriting. His earliest memory is of himself, aged four, playing maracas onstage during a performance of “Hang on Sloopy” with his dad’s band. Gangly and bespectacled offstage, he's a self-described music nerd who has taught himself to be a Pro Tools engineer and bedroom producer. He collects classic ’60s rock albums (the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, and the Doors are particular favorites) and owns a thousand vinyl records.

Hailing from San Tan Valley, Arizona, Gardner spends his days writing and recording songs; jamming in the garage with his brother and drummer, Mark; or gigging with his four-piece band. His debut album, Adventures in Real Time, was just released in January 2015, and its first single, "Let's Get Started," has had almost 3 million plays on Spotify. He's known for his brisk hooks and high-spirited melodies, and he counts the Beatles, Ben Folds, and Vampire Weekend among his influences.

Coming in January 2015, the Creative Ensemble Collective will hold their third annual Boston workshop, supported by Berklee College of Music.

This year’s workshop will be a collaboration of styles, focusing on bringing together musicians from varying and contrasting genres in a celebration of the immense diversity of music and its capacity to look beyond all differences. The goal for CEC Boston 2015 is to produce a series of original compositions that exemplifies this philosophy.

The intensive five-day course is designed to give participants the experience of creating music to a deadline, composing as a team and writing for an ensemble that is multistylistic across a broad range of instruments. This is an exciting opportunity for any musician with a desire to go beyond his or her musical boundaries and to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the many aspects of ensemble work, from group composition and arranging to live performance.

As part of the course, the ensemble will present the material composed during the workshop at a special free concert at Café 939. The event will also feature music from past CEC workshops and is a wonderful opportunity to discover what CEC is all about.

The CEC is a nonprofit organization fostering and expanding the development and dissemination of exceptional and diverse music through live performances and studio recordings. The CEC facilitates intensive music workshops in cities around the world focused on collaboration, improvisation, composition, performance, and studio work. The CEC is an equal opportunities organization.
