Great article about "All Will Be Well" being used in the NBC promos for "Conviction"!

GABE DIXON BAND: LIVE AT THE WORLD CAFE


Reprise


Because of his stratospheric skills as a pianist and his
earlier penchant for Dr. John-like groove tunes, after the release of their
major-label debut, On A Rolling Ball, Nashvillian Gabe Dixon and his band
initially were lumped in with the jam pop subculture. Or, even less accurately,
Dixon was painted by some as a secondhand Ben Folds. Subsequently, Dixon didn't
exactly become a household name in the few years that followed after dropping
the Ball.


While waiting for his own star to rise, Dixon spent time in
the studio and on the road with some of the biggest names in pop history. He was
chosen to play keys on Paul McCartney's Driving Rain album, and this past
summer he toured as the keyboardist for the reunited Loggins & Messina. And
it's easy to see what these master craftsman saw in Dixon — a reflection.


From the timeless tone of his voice, to his mastery over
melody and lyrics, Dixon embodies everything you would want out of the
consummate pop artist. Gabe Dixon isn't like a classic pop songwriter, he
is a classic pop songwriter.


In the span of only six songs on his new live EP, Dixon shows
why he deserves to join the ranks of Jackson Browne and early Elton John in the
pop pantheon. It isn't overstating things to say that no Nashville non-country
artist has released anything this universally appealing in years.


Naysayers can point to the fact that he co-wrote a couple of
these songs with Grammy winner Wayne Kirkpatrick and former Semisonic frontman
Dan Wilson, now an in-demand producer/collaborator.


But even Wilson will tell you that a song like All Will Be
Well
is the "song of a lifetime" (a sentiment he conveyed to ATR
while in town last week). These songs are so deeply affecting on first listen
that you'll wonder first if you've heard them before, and then why you haven't
heard them up until this point. And that is the single most frustrating thing
about listening to Live at the World Cafe.


Why on earth did a major label like Reprise decide to release
a live EP before these songs ever made it to an actual album? This horribly
underpublicized set of songs contains three absolute stunners in Five More
Hours
, All Will Be Well and Ever After You, all three of which
demand to be blasting out of radios from Hohenwald to Honolulu.


Maybe this is part of some major-label master plan to make
Dixon into the megastar he ought to be, but if these songs fail to reach their
full potential it will be a colossal musical travesty, even in post-Napster
music world terms.

Umarisa, I saw your post in the Ben Folds community, and immediately downloaded about 5 of Gabe songs. I listened to them... and then proceeded to download the rest and bought the EP. XD I really like these guys, and... yes.

Hullo everyone; I'm Kat, or Katarsa. I live in Cary, NC, just outside Raleigh, and am a freshman. Yay.

Current Mood: amused

Yo yo, the Gabe Dixon Band is starting to tour. Check it out. I believe they'll be in Kentucky and Los Angeles in November.

And then maybe Florida? Let's hope so.

Get the word out, people. These guys are amazing.

Concert
Gabe Dixon is amazing!!! I'm trying to get my friends into him and his band, but most people have never heard of them. In fact, there are only 6 LJ users who have them listed under their interests. In any case, he's coming to Philly tonight and I'm seeing him at the World Cafe Live. I saw him there a month ago and he was amazing, he's one of the best live performers I've ever seen. He's also a really nice guy, we waited around for him and he talked to us for a bit and I got his autograph. He said they're coming out with an EP soon with recordings from their previous concert in Philly. It's gonna be a great record, I can't wait!
