About a year ago, I stumbled across The Gabe Dixon Band while killing time on myspace and instantly bought their EP, Live at World Cafe.
I was very psyched to learn that, today, they released their first full-length studio album.
Gabe Dixon, the pianist, toured with Alison Krauss, O.A.R. and Paul McCartney. If you like Ben Folds Five, Elton John, Jamie Cullum, or any other piano driven pop bands, check them out.
Here’s a youtube video of one of their live performances and the review from Paste Magazine:
“With his latest album, and his debut for Fantasy Records (out August 26th) Dixon stakes his claim as the next great Pop Piano Man. Dixon will remind you of Elton when he still had hair and was making albums like Tumbleweed Connection and Madman Across the Water. That’s high praise, and this is one of my favorite records of the year.”
