G'day, I'm Jeremy Dylan. I'm Australian, although these days you're just as likely to find me in Nashville as in Sydney.

I direct, write and produce things. I am also a concert promoter - you can find out more about that here.

I wrote and directed my first film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins in 2010. It was narrated by my childhood hero Stephen Fry.

My documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts aired on Australia's Country Music Channel, premiered at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville and at the Grammy Museum in LA. It charts the life and career of Grammy-winning Americana pioneer Jim Lauderdale and features a cast including Elvis Costello and Gary Allan. It was released in 2014.

I'm currently in post-production on Tommy Emmanuel: The Endless Road, a documentary film about guitar icon Tommy Emmanuel, set for release in 2019.

I've directed numerous music videos for artists as varied as ARIA-winning country stars The McClymonts and British cult icon Robyn Hitchcock. In 2018, I was nominated for a Golden Guitar Award for Music Video of the Year and a CMC Music Award for Australian Music Video of the Year, and am currently nominated for the 2019 Golden Guitar Award for Music Video of the Year.

In 2014, I launched the podcast My Favorite Album. Each episode I talk to a different guest about an album they love and how it's influenced them. Over more than 230 episodes and four years, I've spoken to legends from Neil Finn (Crowded House) to Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), as well as some of today's most respected stars, like Jason Isbell and Kacey Musgraves.

I'm also a photographer, shooting publicity stills and live shows, and a print journalist, for magazines including Country Music Capital News and Rhythms magazine, where I've interviewed everyone from Shania Twain to Sturgill Simpson.
