“...the same sort of songwriting gene pool as classic 70’s stuff from the likes of Carly Simon and Fleetwood Mac...and there’s more than a touch of - whisper it – Kate Bush about this ...”The Crack
Cortney Dixon, championed by BBC Introducing in the North East as one of their Top Ten Tips for 2020 released a special EP ‘Won’t Feel Like This Forever’ on Bandcamp on 2 September. The songs received so much love and demand for wider availability that the EP is now set for an official release everywhere at the end of September. It features tracks from a portfolio of songs Cortney wrote, recorded and produced herself during Lockdown with the brainbox and Darlo legend, Rob Irish, adding his mixing magic to the tracks.
Writing for her own sanity, therapy and enjoyment during a very crazy time, it was all about how she was feeling in that moment. Cortney, a dynamic, unique vocalist, skilled guitarist and unmissable Live performer made her international debut at Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg and had a summer packed with festival slots which were postponed in the pandemic. She turned her attention to writing lots of new music to re-emerge stronger than ever!
This Autumn sees the release of her delayed (because of Covid 19) ‘Our Intuition’ EP on all digital platforms with a Limited-Edition vinyl run. Cortney and her band are revving up to recommence their Live gigs and rescheduled festival appearances for 2021 are confirmed with more shows being added all the time. Watch this space and follow Cortney for new music and Live news!
