About this episode:
Today’s guest is a Nashville-native and one of the most talented piano musicians of our time. Songwriter/artist Gabe Dixon, began playing music at age 7, with exposure to household names like Elton John, The Allman Brothers and Paul Simon. Natural talent and interest in music, led him to pursue a career writing songs and performing alongside names like: Gavin DeGraw, Alison Krauss and Union Station, OAR, Supertramp and many others. Early in his career he picked up a gig playing keys and vocals on Paul McCartney’s 2001 album “Driving Rain” and shortly after performed with the Beatle’s legend at a fundraiser concert in New York City.
I was excited to have him in the studio last week to talk about his evolution from The Gabe Dixon band to going solo, and co-writing hits like “All Will Be Well” and “Find My Way” with songwriter and Semisonic frontman, Dan Wilson.
Gabe also expands on the theme and production process for this recent album “Turns To Gold,” and why the uncertainty that comes with songwriting is what makes the creative process so rewarding.
