Gabe Dixon Band: Album/Tour

Self Titled Album Available Next Tuesday, August 26

The Gabe Dixon Band
To kick off the release of their eponymous Fantasy Records debut, The Gabe Dixon Band will tour clubs nationwide in September and October, including shows at New York's Bowery Ballroom, Philadelphia's Theatre of Living Arts, Los Angeles' Roxy Theatre, and San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. The band will share the stage with Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers September 10–14, and with VH1 "You Oughta Know" buzz artist Justin Nozuka September 18 – October 21. The band will make their network television debut Labor Day week on "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson."

Gabe Dixon formed the band with bassist Winston Harrison and drummer Jano Rix when they were students at the University of Miami. Dixon has already been recognized as the "next great pop piano man" (Paste) by artists as varied as Alison Krauss, O.A.R. and Sir Paul McCartney, who have all tapped Dixon to play keyboards both live and in the studio.

The trio cut their debut CD live off the floor during ten days at Nashville's renowned Blackbird Studios with co-producer/engineer/mixer Neal Cappellino (Alison Krauss, Mindy Smith, Jonny Lang). The album embeds vividly detailed, intensely personal and universally relatable songs in elegant yet muscular settings that draw, unabashedly and expertly, on classic rock.

The Tennessean, the newspaper in the band's hometown of Nashville, called it early when it stated in 2005 that Dixon "is a classic pop songwriter [who] deserves to join the ranks of Jackson Browne and early Elton John in the pop pantheon."

Oh, and Muffinman, it was Paste Magazine - not O.A.R. who recognized Dixon as the next great piano man, the bands - (O.A.R.) tapped him to play on their records and tours. Please read and comprehend before you petty post.
