Biography

Dwane Dixon is a singer songwriter and guitarist with four self-produced, original blues albums to his credit. 
Based in Montreal, Canada, he is a 20-year verteran of the local music scene. 

Dwane is a true ambassador for the blues-rock of the late 60's & 70's, he pours body and soul into the genre,
drawing influences from Jimi Hendrix, BB King and Jimmy Page at the height of their powers. 

In Dwane's own words, "I grew up on the blues-rock of the 60's and 70's and that music brought me back to the roots 
of the blues. I discovered Led Zepplin and The Allamn Brothers way before I ever heard of Howling Wolf or Muddy Waters.
In reality it was Jimmy Page that really initiated me into the blues. Upon hearing the first three notes of Since I've Been Loving You, I was hooked!" 

Dwane has traveled all over North America playing shows from the late 1990's until 2010. He was performing mostly one-night-stands and fly-in engagements in a corporate, party band along with usual bar gigs back home to fill the spaces in between.

In August 2010, after 12 years of playing cover music, Dwane put an ad on Craigslist looking to start a "Texas Blues Trio", It didn't take long before Dwane and his trio, "Rio Grande" were playing 100 shows a year.

In 2013 Dwane decided that he would make his first all original blues album, paying hommage to his blues-rock, guitar heroes.  With the release of his first album, Black Satin Blues, the name of the band became "Dwane Dixon" and the shows were streaming in at a steady 200 engagements per year.

In 2016 Dwane released Working Man Blues and then in 2019 followed up with, Betting on a Gambling Man.

Dwane Dixon has played at serveal major blues and music festivals around Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick.
