About Michael Barrett Dixon

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. At age 13, I remember composing (for the first time) 2 short piano pieces instead of practicing for my next piano lesson. I played those for my piano teacher, who encouraged my creativity and the spark was ignited. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Genesis, Genesis (Remastered) Pet Shop Boys, Actually 2001 Remaster Prince & The Revolution, Purple Rain My first live rock concert was Genesis during their "Mama" tour. I was hooked after that. "West End Girls" got me hooked, but PSB's Actually was full of my favs (Rent, It Couldn't Happen Here being just two). The iconic Purple Rain. 'Nuf said. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Wine Song” I love songs that make me grin, and this one never fails. It was written years ago after parting with friends where I was always the lone wine drinker amongst beer drinkers. I decided to have some fun and write a a little anthem for us wine sippers! Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? Still hoping to make music full-time via signing distribution deal with label that lets me do my unique thing! I have so much music in my noggin' but have to pay the bills in other ways outside of music presently.
