Jolene Dixon is a genuine American Singer Songwriter talent born in Topanga Canyon, California and raised in Franklin, Tennessee. The daughter of the Donivan Cowart the celebrated Country Songwriter and Recording Engineer who helped give us timeless music from the likes of Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell (just to name a few).
Jolene grew up in a truly musical environment and began singing and harmonizing with her sisters and musician parents from a very tender age. Jolene spent countless hours as a guest in her Fathers studio soaking up the sounds and magic during sessions with some of Country and Americana music's greatest legends. As one can imagine it all made a lasting impression and Jolene began expressing her own experience creatively through song.
Simply put Dixon is a natural, her songs and voice are as rare and unique as they are classic and time honored. The combination of both traditional and modern influences both musically and geographically helps create a sound that is a well brewed cocktail of great Americana. There is a duality in Dixons voice that is equal parts innocent and seasoned. Her songs seduce the listener with beautiful vulnerability, honesty and a genuine optimism that celebrates and soothes the broken hearted. The classic autobiographical story telling that we've all come to love and expect from Country does not disappoint in Dixons songs but they certainly aren't limited to that framework.
As an artist who divides her time between Tennessee and California it is not a surprise that this unique cultural synthesis is also reflected in the sound of the music. Currently putting the final touches on her debut LP with Producer, Songwriter, Musician extraodinare Kyle Krone at the helm, expect to hear and see great things from this promising new talent in the very near future.
