Carl Dixon brings Canadian rock to the Rose

Carl Dixon’s powerful voice, creative output and stage presence have put him at the forefront of the Canadian rock industry for three decades. As one of Canada’s most respected musicians and a prolific songwriter; he’s renowned as both a solo artist and band member of groups such as Coney Hatch, The Guess Who and April Wine.

Throughout his early music career Dixon toured with heavy metal icons such as Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Triumph, Ted Nugent, Accept and Krokus. Among his many compositions, Carl co-wrote “Taste of Love” which was featured on an episode of Baywatch and in the feature film Jersey Girl.

Dixon, of course, first came to prominence with Canadian rock band Coney Hatch as a hallmark of the 1980s Canadian rock scene. Their debut album was produced by the legendary Kim Mitchell and eight of the ten songs were written or co-written by Dixon.

Now he tours with his solo band and, after surviving a shocking car crash, also as an inspirational speaker to corporations across Canada and the USA.

Dixon’s band will check into the Rose Theatre on October 26, bringing with them iconic performances of Laughing and Un Done from his days with the Guess Who, Hey Operator and Monkey Bars from Coney Hatch and a slew of others too.
