INTERVIEW: Team StarKid’s Dylan Saunders Talks Fan-Funded ‘Confluence’ Album - Billboard.com

I got to chat with the ever amazing Dylan about his ‘Confluence’ plans, how great Tomek is as a producer (I knew that already) and a little bit about the lessons he’s learned from Darren Criss in pursuit of a solo music career.  I may have some extended Dylan quotes that were cut from the article that I can share later.

A little bird just told us to be expecting some BIG news from our buddies Team StarKid this afternoon at 4 PM CST.

We’ll have a story on this later today! Keep an eye out right here and on Billboard.com.


You know Darren Criss - i.e. Warbler hottie Blaine on “Glee” - but what do you know about Criss’ Team StarKid? Rockstar theater kids, yes, but there’s a cult-like following surrounding them that channels, in some strange way, the boybands of yesteryear, tapped into a hyper-connected youth culture and a tad confusing to the adults in the room. Team StarKid defies easy explanation, the kind of thing you often have to fall head-first into to actually get their appeal. At the base, they’re a performance troupe that specializes in pop-culture reference laden, emotional musicals, who springboarded to fame from a viral video hit with their "A Very Potter Musical" in 2009 (video above) to expand to fully original works and a spiraling fandom that supports the group and individual members’ projects.
