Fresh from New York City comes the remarkable sounds of Anthony Dixon.  A singer/songwriter who has worked with Supreme-diva Diana Ross and original "Dreamgirl" Jennifer Holliday, Dixon drops a gem of a project with his stunning new CD All Outta Words.  With a voice reminiscent of El DeBarge and smooth production skills, Dixon takes the listener on a fantastic voyage with 18 cuts of pure and uncut soul.  

"Yo Ant... showtime!  You ready?" A voice asks as Dixon breaks into a scat on the intro track, "Finding the Words."  The CD then kicks into high gear as he showcases a mean falsetto on "Riddle (Who Am I?)" "Where Have You Been?" is a smooth groove that rides a Spanish guitar vibe while "Have a Good Time" has the potential to be the Friday song played in the club after a long week on the job.  Other highlights from this album include "When We Lay Close," "Every Man," and the stunning closer "Jesus Walked This Lonesome Valley."

If "feel good" music with real instrumentation is what you're after, rest assure that All Outta Words will not disappoint.  Dixon wrote, arranged, and co-produced (along with Shawn Lucas) a great project that has made the music world stand and take notice of his talents.  It has been stated that Dixon's music holds a very important ingredient and that is the power to stir the soul.  Believe it!
