Biography

In an industry motivated by gimmicks and commercialism, singer/songwriter Orlando Dixon is proving to be a breath of fresh air. Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Orlando’s musical goal is to become an industry partner in elevating the music of his generation to a standard where it celebrates longevity, artistry, and substance. A classically trained vocalist and self-taught pianist, his style mirrors such legendary artists as Donny Hathaway, Sam Cooke and John Lennon. However, by fusing his own artistry and creativity, Orlando continues to craft a distinct sound all his own.

Among being named the 2009 Grand Prize Winner of DiscMakers’ Design Studio Cover Search Contest (http://www.discmakers.com/design/coversearch/gallery.html) and finalist in VH1’s Songwriting Contest (November 2006), Orlando’s accomplishments also include sharing the stage with the likes of Lalah Hathaway, Paula Cole, and Philip Bailey of Earth Wind and Fire in addition to performing in a tribute to Smokey Robinson. With the release of his So Fresh EP stirring a buzz, Orlando showcases his unique vocal abilities and songwriting talent through self-composed arrangements, and hopes to give his listeners a glimpse into just who he is.

“The point I don't want people to miss with my music is its timeless distinction…my goal isn't just making a hit record, it's building a legacy.”

Now entering his senior year at Berklee College of Music, Orlando is a Music Business Major with a concentration in Music Publishing. With a focus and drive that continues to keep him motivated, he is well on his way to solidifying his place in the music industry.
