“Cortney’s moody groove is overlaid by high reaching vocals,
evoking an undeniably fun retro energy.” - Clash Magazine
“…the same sort of songwriting genepool 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, artist, producer & guitarist from South Shields, emerged from an unforgettable year spent soul-searching, digging deep and diving into a world of sound experimentation. Cortney found creative freedom in discovering her love for music production and it sent her music in a new direction. Guitar driven, with big organic beats, her new releases have a heavier, distorted edge drawing influences from the likes of PJ Harvey, St Vincent and Blondie. Mega guitar riffs and hook-laden melodies front Cortney’s distinctive new sound showcasing her unique vocal performance. It’s pop powered by her love of indie-rock.
Cortney arrived back with a bang as Spotify added her new single ‘Bang Bang, Honey Honey’ to their ‘New Music Friday’ playlist. It received BBC Radio 1 play on Gemma Bradley’s show and was included on Amazon Music’s ‘Best New Bands’ Playlist. After a whirlwind month with her song featured in the last ever episode of ‘Neighbours’, Cortney continues a crazy release streak of addictive new singles dropping, accompanied by compelling music videos inspired by her love of 70’s and 80’s glamour and grunge-y imagery. Cortney’s new songs have been quickly turning into live bangers as she hits this years summer festivals, with headline gigs coming up for this Autumn and into 2023.
