Biography

Daylon Wear is an American country music artist. He grew up in Temple, Texas and attended the University of Mary Hardin Baylor on a music scholarship. He spent the early years of his career based in Austin, performing in original rock and cover bands around the state of Texas. Early music influences included Buddy Holly, Joe Stampley, Charlie Rich and Ray Charles.

Daylon's talents as a singer and songwriter eventually led him to Nashville, where he was signed to a five-year publishing contract by legendary producer Byron Gallimore, who headed the Pride Music Group (Charley Pride). During his tenure with Pride, his list of co-writers included a "who's who" of the Nashville songwriting community, including Johnny Cash, Don Schlitz, Tony Mullins, Bob DiPiero, Bill LaBounty, Alex Harvey, Mark D. Sanders, Don Pfrimmer, Bob Regan, John Jarrard, Steve Seskin, Debi Cochran, Chris Waters, Chuck Jones, Chris Moore and Gary Burr, among others. Upon the closure of Pride Music Group, Tracy Gershon signed Daylon to a publishing deal with High Seas Music (Warner Bros Music).

Wear's songs garnered cuts by artists on Columbia, Sony and Asylum records. His most

recent major label cut was in late 2008, when Bill Medley (Righteous Brothers founder and lead singer) released Hurt City (co-written by Daylon Wear and Bill LaBounty) on his solo album, "Damn Near Righteous".

In addition to writing, Daylon logged countless hours in the studio, working with producers Byron Gallimore, Doug Johnson, Bob DiPiero, Chris Waters and Andy Byrd. His work as a demo singer was in high demand, and he sang the original demos for several hit songs including Faith Hill’s “Let’s Go To Vegas”, Patty Loveless’s “She Drew A Broken Heart” and Lonestar’s "Heartbroke Everyday”.
He also performed regularly at Nashville venues such as the legendary Bluebird Cafe, Douglas Corner, Ace of Clubs, Exit/In, Third & Lindsley, Twelfth & Porter, Barbara's and the Courtyard Cafe, and played acoustic shows with stars like Tim McGraw, Johnny Cash, Blackhawk and Alex Harvey.

In late 1999, his first single, "What She's Doing in Denver", was released on Ben Ewing's EnvoyDiscs label, and received significant attention from country radio. The single charted on Billboard's country chart and in the top ten on Gavin. "What She's Doing in Denver" also picked up three adds on mainstream country radio stations, a feat rarely achieved by independent label releases, and it received airplay on several secondary stations across the U.S. In addition, the single received excellent reviews from respected music critics, including Robert Oermann (Music Row Magazine), Chuck Taylor of Billboard Magazine, and veteran music journalist Chet Flippo.
Daylon's debut album "Texas Twister" was released by Freefalls Entertainment in early 2001, and was distributed worldwide by distribution giant Navarre. Texas Twister remains available in major retail and online outlets including WalMart, Amazon and Best Buy.

After several years touring the United States, opening for acts like Jack Ingram , Billy Joe Shaver, and Aaron Tippin, Daylon relocated to Las Vegas in 2005, where in addition to his solo career, he leads country cover band "The Classic Cowboys" and original country band "The Moneys".
Daylon is currently working with Nashville producer Buddy Hyatt on his second solo album, with an expected release in late 2010. A cut from these sessions, "Mansion of Memories", which Daylon co-wrote with Byron Gallimore, is already getting airplay in Ireland.
