"The Real McCoy" by Alex Dixon's VINTAGE DIXON - AVAILABLE NOW!!!
Extending a blues tradition that runs deep in his blood, Alex Dixon —producer, bassist, pianist, and grandson of the late master songwriter, producer, singer, and instrumentalist Willie Dixon —returns to the roots with his new album The Real McCoy, released on March 24, 2020.
True to its title, The Real McCoy — which introduces lead vocalist Lewis “Big Lew” Powell — is a no-nonsense, straight-ahead Chicago blues opus featuring a lineup of second- and even third-generation blues talent. Steve Bell, son of the late harmonica wizard Carey Bell, is featured on harp, while Alex Dixon’s 13-year-old daughter Leila makes her vocal bow on the single.
Alex says of Big Lew, “I knew he could sing, but I wasn’t sure then what my next project was going to be like. But we started to talk, and we realized we had a similar passion when it came to the blues and what we wanted to do. We went into the studio to see what he could do, and I realized that this was going to be the right guy for me — and a guy that nobody would ever see coming, because nobody had ever heard him sing.”
