Harry Nilsson famously sang, “One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do.” For Gabe Dixon, one is quite possibly the most liberating number. On his debut solo album, One Spark (Fantasy/Concord Music Group) Dixon flexes a newfound muscularity in tone and texture – delivering the most personal and rewarding music of his young career.
For a decade, Dixon helmed the critically acclaimed The Gabe Dixon Band; originally formed as a quintet at the University of Miami and last heard on record as a trio on their 2008 self-titled release for Fantasy Records / Concord Music Group. The album earned accolades from Paste, The Village Voice, American Songwriter and Performing Songwriter among many others, and virtually the entire album was licensed for use on primetime television. In addition, one of the songs, “Find My Way” was featured as the main title theme for the smash-hit Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds film The Proposal. But, in the Autumn of 2009, when the band exited Seattle’s Benaroya Hall stage to a standing ovation, it would no longer be “The” and “Band,” but only Gabe Dixon. Says Dixon: “Working together over the last ten years, I think we all felt we had made the creative statement we wanted to make and it was time for me to jump into something unfamiliar and uncomfortable, something that would break me open creatively.” Adding, “If I’m living in the moment and I don’t know what’s next, usually something good will happen.”
Hot off the heels of her critically acclaimed full length album, Masquerade, the soulful indie/pop songstress Lelia Broussard claimed her spot in the top two of Rolling Stone’s So You Want To Be A Rock And Roll Star contest. Hand-picked as one of the best unsigned artists in the nation by the editors of Rolling Stone and Atlantic Records, Lelia performed at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, TN on June 12th as well as LIVE on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on June 15th.
Currently living in New York, Lelia Broussard was originally born in Lafayette, Louisiana, where she was immersed in the rich and diverse music scene at a very young age. At the tender age of six, she was selected to perform Patsy Cline's "Crazy" in front of 15,000 people at the Cajun Dome. She hasn’t looked back since. She started writing her own songs, recording & independently releasing her own albums and began to amass an ever growing, devoted fan base. Over the course of her career, Broussard has collaborated with A-List producers including Rob Fusari (Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, and Destiny’s Child), Espionage (Beyonce, Train, and Chris Brown) and Dave Trumfio (Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Built To Spill). Still an up and coming artist, her songs have been featured on hit television shows such as MTV's “The Hills” , CBS' “Joan of Arcadia” and NBC’s “Men in Trees” as well as independent films. After a successful UK tour and a national U.S. tour, Lelia is poised for a breakout year in 2012.
