Taking inspiration at an early age from songwriting legends Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and Crosby, Stills & Nash, Troy Richmond Dixon blends the influences of country, rock, folk and soul into a modern style that is uniquely his own.
Often compared to contemporary artists such as Ryan Adams, Ray La Montagne, Amos Lee and Iron and Wine, Troy has built a solid reputation as a passionate and engaging performer and a truly original song craftsman.
“For me, it's always been about the stories that you're trying to share and how they resonate. All of my favorite songwriters were first and foremost great storytellers. That's what's at the forefront of my mind when I'm working on a song-what is the heart of the story and how can I best tell it-as simply and honestly as possible. The political and social content of the best work of the 60's and 70's had an enormous influence on me. I've seen, so many times, how much power a song can have to change hearts and minds...it can be miraculous! ”
Born and raised in Jackson, Michigan, Troy made several stops across the country after college, eventually settling in Portland, Oregon. He has been writing, recording and performing his heartfelt and thoughtful brand of Americana music throughout the country for the last ten years. Along with two previous CD releases, Troy has written over four hundred songs as well as numerous short stories and a volume of poetry.
Troy describes his new, self-titled EP as “a fun mix of folk, country and rock-trying to explore the boundaries of modern Americana music.” Produced by drummer Andy Korn (Ronnie Spector, David Grisman, Beth Orton)and mixed by Jamieson Durr (Josh Ritter, Gomez, The Dead, Chickenfoot) at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco, the EP has received wide critical acclaim and has recently been licensed for film and television scores in the US, Europe and Australia.
