In a constantly changing industry, Washington D.C.-born Orlando Dixon is striving to challenge the status quo. With a musical journey that has been a melting pot of different experiences, Orlando’s goal is to create art that connects to the human condition in a way that is relatable, celebrates longevity and embodies substance.
After graduating Berklee College of Music, Orlando began focusing his attention on songwriting and vocal production, achieving credits that included a Top 20 record on Billboard's Urban AC chart (2011), and working with the likes of Grammy Award Winner Regina Belle. Simultaneously he began building a buzz on YouTube amassing a following of 29k subscribers and 3M total video views, resulting in being discovered and selected to audition for NBC’s The Voice. As a member of both Team Usher and Team Adam, Orlando finished as semi-finalist (Top 32) finishing one battle shy of the live play offs. His stint on the show led to work as a background vocalist for Zac Brown Band, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, One Republic and K. Michelle.
In 2014, as a recipient of an Artist Grant, Orlando released of his debut studio album titled “Listen:”, independently. Following his debut he released his signature song #BlackBoyJoy, a truth telling narrative about the challenges faced by people of color today and resilience in the face of adversity. It was this song that inspired him to venture outside of music and start his own clothing line #BlackBoyJoy® Apparel, in 2017. Just one year later Orlando was cast as an original member of Disney Music Group’s new acappella vocal group DCappella. With new business ventures and creative opportunities under his belt, Orlando hopes to make strides with his message and further solidify his place in the industry.
