Michael is a former American Idol contestant and Christian rock artist from Tennessee, US who holds the title for the number one selling album from a Christian artist in 2013 with his debut “A Messenger”.
With his passion for music growing stronger by the day, Dixon began writing with his best bud Paul from school as together they improved their songwriting abilities. The piano soon became a haven for Dixon as it soon represented a form of escapism and solace during his reflective moments. In his teenage years he’d become so involved with music that he began leading worship at his church youth group.
In 2012 he released his first original song “New Love” via iTunes. The following year Dixon released his debut album “A Messenger” through Sparrow Records. Within the first week of release he had already shifted of 22,000 copies and went into the Billboard charts at number 15. The album featured singles “You Are” and “Love Has Come for Me”. Following the album’s release, Dixon jumped on the Miracle Tour with Josh Wilson supporting Third Day.
In 2014 Dixon released his second album “Anchor” featuring the single “More of You” and the album went straight to number one in the Christian music charts. Taking inspiration from fellow Christian artists Hayley Williams and Chris Daughtry, Dixon continues to evolve his rock sound and bringing it forth to the mainstream.
