Author Dylan Dominguez Waltz

Having been named by his hippy father after Bob Dylan and poet Dylan Thomas in the early 70s, it appears Dylan Dominguez Waltz had his path to music & writing paved for him. He picked up a guitar and started singing Jon Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” at family gatherings at age 4. Flash forward to age 14 and he had his first job in music as a guitar tech & roadie for San Francisco glam rock outfit Vain and their management firm Rebel Productions. That lead to additional work with bands like 4-Non-Blondes, Shine, etc. 30 plus years later you can still catch him on the road with Vain, these days with a laptop making set lists and handing out itineraries, not schlepping Marshall cabinets. Forever fascinated by the artists’ perspective or painting a picture of a live performance with words, Dylan began writing for SF SONIC in 2015 to put to good use the time spent in private high school & collegiate classrooms. He is no stranger to being on the stage either. Dylan also has plenty of time behind the mic as former frontman for metal/rock bands Outrage, Sarcoma, Motogruv, Shotgun Harlot, and currently fronting NWOBHM tribute band Union Jack & The Rippers. Enjoying the glory years of his 40s now, Dylan loves spending time traveling with his wife Caressa, hanging with his four sons, family, sports, hiking, cooking, and of course lots of live music on, in front of, or backstage getting the artists’ point of view.
