“My therapist challenged me to start journaling, which inspired the title How Are you Healing,” states Dixon. “Every day I was tasked with writing about the steps I took toward healing for that day. Those journal entries became the songs on this album.
“With this album, I hope to start the conversation around mental health in some circles and continue it in others. Healed people heal people.”
“How Are You Healing?” features songs like “Keeper” and “Here.” Known for penning powerful ballads, Michael’s lyrical prowess is showcased in the songs “Mistakes” and “Perception,” and notable cameos on the project include singer and actress Christina Bell on “Be Alright,” Kathy Taylor on “It Is Well”, Nakitta Foxx (of Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers), and newcomer Tatiana Barnett on “Make A Way,” Isaiah Templeton on “Looking Out For Me,” and a poignant introduction from Pastor Dr. Timothy W. Sloan.
An overcomer who’s experienced losing his hearing in both ears due to an ear infection in 2012, which left him deaf for two years – Michael is grateful. As seen on Jamie Fox’s hosted “Beat Shazam,” Dixon got his start in the music industry professionally by doing studio background vocals, which developed into live background singing, working with an array of artists spanning genres including Yolanda Adams, Chris Tomlin, Lady Gaga, Reba McIntyre and Lyle Lovett to name a few and has written for Grammy-nominated artist Gene Moore. He also serves as one of the Worship Leaders at The Luke Church in Humble, TX.
