The North Door

On the heels of headlining his first US and International tour, Kenyon Dixon has been hard at work bringing his sound to a global audience. The Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter is here to remind us that "Quality R&B" 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 catalog of timeless music.
Dixon's most recent offering "Closer" (Released May 5, 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.

With his smooth and sultry vocals, vulnerable lyrical and undeniable records - that are bound to leave you with all of the feels - Dixon delivers the R&B we love every single time. And just like the original version, Closer (Deluxe), released Nov 4, 2022, was a monumental success. The 16-track LP amassed over 8.8M streams on Spotify, earning Best R&B Album of 2022 nods from both Yardbarker and Rated R&B.
