Dalton is most recently known for being one of the Top 3 finalists on the 15th and final season of the Fox Television hit show, American Idol. Dalton began performing at the age of 12 when he formed his first band Fly Away Hero. At 14, he was contacted by a casting director that discovered his band through YouTube and asked him to audition for a new act called IM5. The principles were Simon Fuller, Perez Hilton and Jaime King. From over 30,000 nationwide auditions, Dalton was chosen for the group. Over the next 4 years, Dalton worked with many well-known producers, songwriters and choreographers, including Toby Gad, Harmony Samuels, Rock Mafia, Nappytabs, and Meghan Trainor.
At 18, Dalton reunited with his childhood band Fly Away Hero, who landed themselves at #17 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart after releasing a new EP titled Lost and Found that debuted at #22 on the Alternative chart and included their song “Hercules”, written by Dalton, which remains the #1 selling song on the EP.
Now, at age 21, Dalton is ready to release his own music and show his fans who he is as a musician. Songwriting is very introspective for Dalton. His way of looking at the world has been shaped by experience that his belies his age. International TV exposure and charting multiple times with multiple bands before he was even legally an adult has given him a unique perspective on life’s events. Listeners will see and hear that on his markedly personal debut album, Nobody’s Home .
