Some Country music purists would probably say that anything that warrants the name “Alternative Country” is not really Country. But ultimately it is the domain of the fan to judge what an artist is or is not, to them.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Jennifer Dixon.

A little country sensibility with a style that hovers along the cusp of blues, pop, jazz owing to a stint on Memphis’ legendary Beale Street, and nearly a decade in Nashville, her new CD, “2 Years” is the fruit of experience. She did not come out of nowhere.

Which makes it all the more uncanny that she has been labeled “un-Nashville.”
The intro to “A Little You For Me” sounds like a nod to “I Lie Around” by Paul McCartney and Wings. But this Norah Jones-like tune comes from the heart of a woman who has given all she can give to the world, yet she finds she’s got a little more left for her man if he’ll meet her halfway. Like “I Lie Around” it never really takes off. It threatens to, repeatedly. But when it comes down to it, it’s just right.

“Too Tired To Care” is Dixon, having been there, done that and not doing it again regarding love. When she starts to hear the same old lines, she is just that, too tired to care. It is a mellow funk romp with a lyric delivered in focused rapid fire, highlighted with some sultry vocal inflections.

“Easy Goodbye” seems to be a follow up on the same theme in that, having heard it all before, its easy to let go and move on. These two tracks are the most un-Nashville of the bunch. One can picture many of today’s top female vocalists flagrantly over-doing “Easy Goodbye”, robbing it of its symbolic ease. One of its greatest features is that the musicians, while doing some top-notch work, back off and let the vocals shine.

With these tracks what you get is a many-tiered cynical view of love. In that respect, “If You’re Looking For An Angel” is refreshing. Just when you are expecting something like “Strong Enough” by Cheryl Crow, it turns into something closer to “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt in its vulnerability. For instance, in the chorus, Dixon sings “If you’re looking for an angel…” Having heard a couple of these songs, one may be surprised to hear her continue with “here I am.” It’s sweet, its comforting, and it demonstrates that with a few gentle, sincere words, yes, women can make men, dare I say it, swoon.

Love Me Back” delivers the very subtlest hints of the smoky vocals of Natalie Merchant or Melissa Etheridge, yet tips the scales with those well-executed vocal inflections again.

Dixon finally brings the thunder with “I Need a Man.” It’s gritty, harkening back to Tanya Tucker, matching the vocal strength of Carrie Underwood. Here Dixon is laying it all out on the line as if to say “This is what I need, damn you!”

Four of these tracks can be heard on her homepage, and one is featured in the indie film “Shattered”.

"blues with a fresh twist"

----yet another rising talent beckons from nashville; Jennifer Dixon sings the blues in her own sea of rock and her first effort`2 years ` is a beautiful collection of 6 songs which should be heard by a much wider audience than tennessee ; she reminds me of a young Bonnie Raitt with a twist of Fleetwood artist who I believe will be coming to uk sometime soon >

2 Years "EP" July 2008



Nashville, TN - There is no such thing as an overnight success. It’s a long, arduous road with exhilarating ups and hard-knock downs that can eventually derail those who are not fully committed to the journey. But when an artist is truly an artist, and music is their God-given gift, no amount of industry hoop-jumping, due-paying or nay-saying can hold them back. Meet Jennifer Dixon.

Jennifer Dixon is that kind of artist. Born in Flowood, Mississippi, this sultry, dark-haired soul singer has a unique style born of influences from the likes of soul-sister greats - Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Eva Cassidy and Dusty Springfield.

After completing college on a vocal scholarship, Jennifer became a sought-after act in Memphis – performing select dates on Beale Street and developed a strong local following that led to singing backup for 60’s pop-legend, Bobby Freeman.

A move to Nashville in 2000 introduced her unique vocal skills to The Black Widow Band – a seasoned, soul-funk cover band - and landed her dates with Waldo Weathers – legendary saxophonist formerly with the late, great James Brown.

Music Row publishers and creative directors took notice of Nashville’s newest resident, and it wasn’t long before Jennifer was signed to a developmental artist deal with Bluewater Music. This was the next giant step that put Jennifer with industry hitmakers and reinforced her innate skills as a writer. Her affiliation with Bluewater also led to studio demo work and tribute album projects for Julie Roberts and K.T. Tunstall for CMA Records.

Last year, highly regarded Nashville producer, Jim Reilley, took interest in Jennifer’s unique style and together they produced “2 years” – an independent album project that Jennifer proudly says, “….has been tagged as very un-Nashville.” Co-writer on 4 of the 6 tracks, Jennifer Dixon sings her mind and gives listeners a glimpse into her personality and life via lyrics and vocal expression. Jennifer’s song “Love Me Back” is featured in the upcoming Nashville Independent film “Shattered” by writer/ director Chris St Croix.

Jennifer Dixon is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Her dedication and single minded focus combined with her truly unique vocal style are the combination that continue to build a strong fan base and have her poised on the brink of national success.
