I first heard Gabe Dixon’s music when watching the movie The Proposal with Sandra Bullock. The single Find My Way had good vocals and keyboard and I was immediately attracted to it. After finding out that Gabe Dixon wrote the music, played the keyboard, and sang the vocals I immediately purchased his first album The Gabe Dixon Band and was duly impressed. Gabe is a throwback to a bygone error where musicians had skills and could sing without auto-tune. No wonder Sir Paul McCarty asked Gabe to play keyboard on his Driving Rain album and asked him to tour.
One Spark marks Gabe’s first solo album effort. Though more of a pop album, there is much here to be admired. The solid lyrics and melodic material Gabe is rightly known for are here in abundance. Though Gabe’s keyboard takes a back-seat in this effort, the collaboration with artists such as Alison Kraus and Starsailor’s James Walsh has produced a solid album.
