One of the most versatile guitarists in the country, Dixon‘s twenty two-year music career has seen him perform with top local and international jazz and pop musicians as a sideman and band leader, musical director and arranger. He has recorded three albums (2008, 2011 and 2013) with the Samsom Nacey Haines Trio, the first of which was a finalist in the 2009 Jazz Tui of The Year Award.
He also leads The John Scofield Project, plays jazz with The Alan Brown Trio, rock-reggae with dDub and writes and records his own original music with 'I.D'. He has recently been through USA, Australia, Canada, New Caledonia, Singapore, Fiji, the Cook Islands and Thailand with his music.
Dixon currently teaches jazz at Auckland, Massey and Canterbury Universities. As a music teacher he has also built a large following through his YouTube channel (dragondix) which led to the development and launch of what has become a very successful video tutorial-based jazz guitar website: jazzguitarlegend.com
