Third effort shows off retooled sound
The Gabe Dixon BandWith their newly released album The Gabe Dixon Band, following On A Rolling Ball, released in 2002, The Gabe Dixon Band shows us the same band we already know with a new twist. Originally hailing from Nashville Tennessee, the band includes founder, Gabe Dixon, and his two college roommates Winston Harrison and Jano Rix.

Most of the album consists of easygoing mellow songs whose lyrics show the ups and downs and hardships that come along with love. The album opener “Disappear” and the songs “Baby Doll”, “And the World Turned”, “Further The Sky” (featuring Mindy Smith) and “Five More Hours”, seem to all fall into that same category. With lyrics such as “easy come and easy go/has never been the case/dreams of you are hard to erase/call me crazy/call me mad/call me what you will/but I’m sane enough/to know that I love you still”, from the song “Ever After You” show the pain and the aftermath from a breakup.

Other songs display the upbeat side of the band. “Find My Way” shows the theme of being lost and trying to find oneself. “Far From Home” sends a similar message of feeling lost and trying to make it through pain and hard times while feeling alone in the world. One of the more powerful songs, “All Will Be Well” speaks of hope and optimism by telling us that sometimes all you need is time to fix things that have happened in the past. “Till You’re Gone” tells a story about a person who is leaving and how the narrator is going to stand by their side and support them until they leave. “Sirens” meaning seems unclear but has a very riveting tune. These songs show the same type of melody and emphasize on the amazing piano playing ability that Dixon has.

Overall, “The Gabe Dixon Band” is definitely not an album to disappoint. It reveals the versatility and the originality of the band. Dixon’s catchy and meaningful lyrics will have you singing along after just a few listens.
