"If you want to see something a bit different from the more orthodox straight ahead jazz / fusion music that is so prevalent today, then Dixon is your girl" - Jazz London Radio
Return to the source of swing...
Lucy Dixon has a habit of reinventing herself. Never content with the safe option, she has continually carved an eclectic career in theatre, music, performance art and dance. From her early days as a showgirl at the Lido de Paris - via the world of musical theatre in London's West End (Cats, Follies, Cabaret), to extensive periods touring the world with Stomp - Dixon has gradually found her place as a solo artist living in Paris.
Her latest project is aptly titled Lulu's Back In Town, which pays homage to some of the artists from the 1930s & 40s who have inspired her greatly, from Fats Waller to Fred Astaire.
With a retro semi-acoustic line up and given her unique talents as a tap dancer and percussionist, the result is an original collection of infectiously rhythmic jazz songs. This project is a testament to the golden era of swing with a modern twist.
Dixon inevitably brings elements from all her previous experiences as a performer making her a captivating live artist.
"To be able to combine the music with dance is a powerful and addictive feeling for me. Tap dance is so immediate. People love it. It has echoes of keeping warm on street corners in Harlem, to gliding effortlessly across marble floors. The element of tap dance enables me to really exchange ideas and communicate with the other musicians in the band, instead of just being the immobile singer in front who has to wait until the solo's are over" - Lucy Dixon
