Cortney Dixon, Newcastle UK’s young award winning and rising star, released her hotly anticipated debut single “Summer’s Eyes” at the end of the Summer. The first release from the forthcoming “Our Intuition” EP, produced by Jim Lowe (Stereophonics/Charlatans), sent her rapidly growing follower numbers racing. Hot on its heels, is Live favourite ‘What You Wanna Do’, championed by BBC Introducing in the North East with on-going playlist and Live radio session support.
A prolific writer and winner of ‘Ubeat Songwriter of the Year’, Cortney’s creativity extends way beyond her music. She creates and produces her own videos, styles her photo sessions , visualises her own artwork and is a passionate collector of vintage clothes.
Raised on an eclectic mix of music, Cortney loves the likes of St Vincent, Maggie Rodgers, Bon Iver , is a fan of ska/punk bands including The Specials, The Clash and The Beat and grew up listening to Fleetwood Mac, Bowie and Kate Bush.
Engaging with authentic Geordie warmth, quirky charm and charismatic style, Cortney, also an unmissable Live performer, made her international debut with her full band at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg in September and has more gigs in the run-up to the EP launch early in 2020 so keep an eye on her socials for more info!
