ABOUT BROOKS DIXON TRIO
“As if his music wasn’t convincing enough, his friendly stage presence and natural vibe with his audiences make it easy to become a fan of the young man. Not only that, but he’s also perfected the songwriting formula to match his style: a little bluesy, a little poppy, 100% authentic..”
Brooks Dixon began performing his original music as a student at Clemson University first taking the stage in 2012 at Moe Joe’s Coffee Company. As momentum began to mount, Dixon began to take his music more seriously, leading to his first EP, the independently released “Stone Pile EP” in 2014.
After the release Brooks returned to his hometown of Greenville, South Carolina, where he quickly gained momentum playing the local bars and coffee shops, drawing comparisons to Folk-Pop icons James Taylor and Ray LaMontange. He began touring regionally, and soon met Greenville Singer-Songwriter Sara Middleton. The two teamed up with other Greenville players to form the group “Brooks Dixon & The Noble Sound”. Shortly after, they found themselves performing their unique soulful harmonies for thousands at Downtown Alive. Dixon set out to Nashville to record a second EP “Weather the Storm” in early 2016. In large part, due to the band, Dixon found his songs taking on a fuller more robust Americana tone.
“Weather the Storm” lead to new heights for Brooks and the band, as they found their way on stage at numerous regional festivals and clubs throughout the Southeast. Shortened in name and members, the “Brooks Dixon Band” found cohesion with a 5 piece group, Dixon on vocals and guitar, Middleton’s smooth harmonies and occasional lead vocals, Shane Byler on the Drums, Ross Krieg on the Saxophone, and Bennett Dixon on the bass. The group hit the studio in early 2017 and released their first band single “Good Intentions” a song featuring a more upbeat take on Dixon’s songwriting.
The group continues to tour regionally in the southeast, as well as provide music for all occasions. Flexibility has been their calling card, Dixon is comfortable performing solo, as a duo with Middleton, a trio of saxophone, guitar, and drums, as well as with the full band.
