With this countdown I want to create a unique, intimate and exclusive platform for music.
house in the sand isn't just your average music site, it's one that brings you closer to your (new) favourite artists.
Managing to doing this for 4 years now, probably speaks for itself.
But it's safe to say that it wouldn't work without all these fantastic artists who join us all the time.
HITS became a community and that's just the coolest thing we could've done.
What is #HITSBC16?
HITSBC16 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2016.
Throughout the entire month of February, we will be celebrating this website's fourth birthday.
One artist/band a day is going to wish us a happy birthday and then perform a song exclusively for this sweet occasion.
Who is performing today?
He is a musician from Liverpool, UK.
The singer/songwriter is just starting a solo career after The Arkanes, the band he played guitar in, split up.
Dylan blends Indie with sprinkles of Pop, Rock and Acoustic.
Writing all of his arragements himself, the young musician creates relatable songs with powerful riffs, clever lyrics and expressive rhythm sections.
Do yourself a favour and follow this artist on his journey.
What is special about this video?
It's a premiere!
This performance is the first one of Dylan's solo music. He's already gigging the UK, but this one is the first you'll find on any music platform.
house in the sand is pretty stoked to host this premiere of a fantastic song.
Ladies and lads, here is Dylan Cassin performing his brand new song "Tides".
