James Dixon at Sunset Sessions

Overview

Originally from Suffolk James was a guitarist in the award-winning Country/Americana band The Chicken Slacks, before playing solo at various festivals and venues across the UK including Beach Break Live, Henry's Little Big Gig and Ain't Nothing But Blues Bar.

International venues include The Blue Door, Arrowtown (NZ), The Brewery, Byron Bay (Aus) and Deus Ex Machina, Cangguu (Bali)
James released his Bromeliad Acoustic Sessions EP in 2017 and continues to gig around the country aiming to tell a story with a solid beat and memorable melody. Based in Cornwall and working in collaboration with Dirtbox Guitars.

I play music which is rough and unpolished, never write set lists and have never played a song the same way twice. My guitars are one-offs made in my hometown, my tambourine is taped to an old sock and my dreadlocks are natural.

My songs are all true stories.
