ABOUT BROOKS DIXON
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. 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.
