Jakob Luke Dylan is an American singer and songwriter who rose to fame as the lead singer and primary songwriter for the rock band the Wallflowers, who have released six albums since 1992.
Dylan was born on December 9, 1969 in New York City to folk singer Bob Dylan (né Robert Zimmerman) and model Sara Dylan (née Shirley Noznisky), both of whom are Jewish.
The youngest of five children, Dylan spent the earliest years of his life in Greenwich Village. Around the age of three, he moved with his family to the Los Angeles area.
Dylan and childhood friend Tobi Miller formed a new band called The Apples around 1989, then recruited Barrie Maguire on bass, Peter Yanowitz on drums, and Rami Jaffee on keyboards to fill out the new band. The Apples changed their name to the Wallflowers and began playing clubs in Los Angeles.
After signing to Virgin Records, The Wallflowers’ eponymous debut was released on August 25, 1992 to positive reviews, but low sales. Virgin dropped the band, but were picked up by Interscope Records.
The Wallflowers began recording their second album, “Bringing Down the Horse” in 1995. Around the time they began recording, however, founding member Tobi Miller left the band. A number of guitarists stepped in to finish the album. “Bringing Down the Horse” was produced by T Bone Burnett and the songs were written by Dylan. The album was released on May 21, 1996.
The album features hits such as “One Headlight”, “6th Avenue Heartache”, “The Difference”, and “Three Marlenas”. “Bringing Down the Horse” went quadruple platinum and is the Wallflowers’ highest-selling album to date.
A few more hits: “Heroes” (David Bowie cover), “Sleepwalker”, “Laughing Out Loud”, “Hand Me Down” and “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding” (Elvis Costello cover).
Dylan married his girlfriend Paige, a screenwriter, in 1992. The couple have four sons together and live in Los Angeles.
