In a world where the existence of “Quality R&B” is constantly questioned, Newly GRAMMY nominated Artist Kenyon Dixon reminds us that it is most definitely alive and thriving. As one of this generation’s emerging Songwriters, working with a range of artists from R&B Legends Mary J Blige, Tyrese & Ginuwine to Pop Superstar Justin Timberlake, Dixon has still managed to reserve some ink for his own catalogue of timeless music.

In fall 2021, following the success of his album Expectations, Dixon joined Ledisi as support on her WILDCARD tour. He later collaborated with fellow R&B crooners PJ Morton & B.J. the Chicago Kid to pay homage to the King of Soul, Sam Cooke with a remake of the soulful classic “Bring it On Home to Me”. The collaborative effort landed the trio accompanied by Guitarist Charlie Bereal, a nomination for Best Traditional R&B performance at the 2022 GRAMMY Awards.
Dixon’s most recent offering “Closer” (released May 5th 2022) which debuted at #4 on the US iTunes R&B charts, while comfortably sitting in both Top 50 and Top 100 positions on iTunes R&B charts in over 15 other countries like South Africa, UK and Japan , just to name a few — has taken the R&B industry by storm. The effort has rightfully gained praise from some of the industry’s elite including Joe Budden, Ty$, and The Rhythm & Soul legend herself, Anita Baker; who took to Twitter to share her stamp of approval by tweeting: “R&B is alive & well. @kennygotsoul with the Melodies, Lyrics, & Vocals.” The album has also received recognition from major music outlets like Revolt, Uproxx, and OkayPlayer, solidifying the incredible response from R&B fans across the world.
