Glendale, Arizona-born, Florida raised singer/songwriter Anthony Dixon has worked with many musical greats during his young career, and that training has prepared him for his own ascension as a solo singer.
Dixon began singing as a child at the Southern Pentecostal church in which his family belonged. It was much later that he made a name for himself in musical circles with his emotive, theatrical tenor voice, working in support of artists such as Diana Ross, Jennifer Holliday, Cissy Houston and Melba Moore. He also fashioned a career in musical theatre, appearing in the revival of the musical Purlie with Moore as well as in stage productions of Chess and Ain't Misbehaving. Dixon is also a member of the JFM Band and was the winner of the Georgia Music Industry Association's Urban competition for songwriters.
Earlier this decade Anthony moved to New York City to continue his musical aspirations. He has since become a fixture in music clubs around NYC. In 2007 he released his debut album, All Outta Words, a nice display of both his versatile voice and his songwriting talent.
