short press bio:
Growing up in Southern Vermont, Colby Dix became proficient at a number of instruments at an early age but always returned to the guitar as his primary noise machine. His love of music led him to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA where he received a bachelor’s degree in Music Production & Engineering. From there, many years were spent in recording studios and on the road touring as both a producer/engineer and a musician with national artists Brooks & Dunn, Brad Paisley, Matt & Kim, Sonia Kitchell, Jazz Mandolin Project, The Breakfast, Touchpants, Soulive, and Spookie Daly Pride. His powerfully emotive debut solo album i am. it is. you should be. is available now and it sounds like driving in a snowstorm. iaiiysb is a deeply layered alt-folk indie masterpiece that ranges from melodic harmonies to all out feedback when necessary. A bold stroke and an addictive sound.
“In any case, i am. it is. you should be. is a strong debut that often borders on brilliance and reveals an overlooked talent.”
– Dan Bolles (Seven Days)
“Damn Colby I really had no idea. It was like an everlasting gobstopper, I was hearing hints of Ween, Elliott Smith, Bill Frisell, Steve Vai in One. Too Far had a this cool David Lynch meets Jack Johnson vibe…”
– Patrick May (Portland Music Foundation)
“Showcasing his singing and songwriting abilities, Dix conveys deep emotion through his acoustic guitar and his humbled, yet steadfast vocals.”
– Pete Mason (Upstate Live)
