‘I can't get enough of Cortney Dixon 'Stop This Party'... I really, really like this track. It's got hints of Haim and Wolf Alice. The indie guitar pop I just needed tonight on the show.’ - Gemma Bradley, BBC Radio 1 Introducing.
“I’m getting proper Strokes-y vibes on the guitars on that track. Obviously a future indie anthem and a half!’ - Emily Pilbeam, Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music Mixtape
Cortney Dixon, artist, producer and guitarist from South Shields arrived with a bang last summer with her first four singles receiving support from Gemma Bradley’s BBC Radio 1 Introducing show, Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music Mixtape and BBC Introducing in the NE. Cortney’s music has been featured on playlists including Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’, ‘Proper Belters’, ‘Transistor’, ’That Indie Girl’, Apple Music’s ‘New in Pop’ & ‘New in Indie’ and Amazon Music’s ‘Breakthrough UK’ and ‘Best New Bands’. The whirlwind start also saw a sync placement in the last ever episode of ‘Neighbours’. Cortney continues the release momentum with her first single of 2023, Stop This Party released 3rd March.
Cortney's distinct sound draws influences from the likes of PJ Harvey, HAIM and Blondie. It’s alt-pop powered by her love of indie-rock. Big, fuzzed-up, guitar-driven bangers showcase her high-flying vocals with a heady mix of stories about love, angst and growing up in a working class Northern town. FFO Wet Leg, Wolf Alice, Haim, Black Honey.
Cortney produces her stunning and innovative imagery with fellow creative genius, Rob Irish. With little funds and boundless creativity, they deliver powerful DIY artwork and videography to rival high budget productions.
Cortney, a captivating Live performer and skilled guitarist, delivers high-energy, unforgettable shows with back-to-back anthemic tunes. She ended 2022 with a sold-out headline show at Zerox, Newcastle. This year Cortney is gigging throughout the UK with her three-piece band and hitting the festival circuit this summer.
Cortney has written on songs for the likes of Elkie Brooks and Thai YouTube sensation Zom Marie and collaborated with BRIT Award-winner Jack Garratt, internationally renowned producer Richard Craker (Liam Gallagher, Dagny, Jolin Tsai), Warner Music Asia star Valentina Ploy amongst others. She has a non-exclusive deal for sync promotion with BMG imprint, Fieldhouse Music.
