A career that has covered over 40 years of barrooms, dance-halls, recording studios.

 Jim Dixon moves audiences with a deeply rich vocal presence and poetry forged from a life devoted to his craft. Earliest accomplishments date back to 1982 where he was FFA Song Competition for Performing Arts winner and had his first published works (In the Desert). Jim spent his high school summer years on tour with the City Limits Band and Black Label performing in TX, NM, CO,  launching a career that has yet to slow down.


Studio owner, Producer and sound engineer round out the rest of Jim’s skill set. Recording {the now} famous Ryan Bingham (Jim worked with him in his teenage years and met with T bone Burnett prior to the making of Crazy Heart) as well as Hillary Rosita Smith (Honey House) and  many others. Retired from the endless nights behind the mixing board Jim now focuses on his true passion, songwriting, the study of music and recording his own works.


Moving from his roots in south eastern NM in 2013 to the more populated and impactful Texas music scene has offered Jim the opportunity to work with the best and brightest in the west TX area and has given him access to the expertise to accompany his passion to keep learning. 


Broadcasts performances, including the syndicated radio show TRDR Texas red dirt roads with Justin Frazell in 2016, Jim’s older records, released 2013- 2018, have done well. “Broken Marquee”, “Tonto”, “She hates my Guitar” and “the Ride” still picking up air play and he hopes to move further with his new single “Earthbound”. 


I had a chance to catch Jim’s set, a late-night check-in at the Blue Light Live in Lubbock TX. I His songs cover a vast spectrum of landscapes filled with great stories and unforgettable melodies. A must follow for anyone who truly loves music and good song craft.
