Q Management Signs 19 Recording’s Artist and American Idol Finalist Colton Dixon
Q Management Group has announced the signing of 19 Recordings' Dove Award-winning artist and Season 11 American Idol finalist, Colton Dixon. Based just outside Nashville in Franklin, Tenn., Q Management Group, headed by Owner and President Zachary Kelm, also represents the Grammy® nominated and platinum selling band Skillet as well as burgeoning rockers WE AS HUMAN.
"We are incredibly excited to be working with Colton," remarked Kelm. "He has great talent, passion, drive and integrity. We are looking forward to getting this new music from Anchor out there in every facet possible and building a partnership that propels his already burgeoning career."
Just last week, Dixon released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Anchor, which quickly climbed the iTunes overall albums chart to No. 4 and remained in the Top 10 throughout the week, while holding strong to No.1 on the Christian & Gospel albums chart.
t follows Dixon’s 2013 debut, A Messenger, which set the record for biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act, becoming the No. 1 selling album of 2013 by a new Christian artist and the No. 9 best selling album of 2013 in the Christian genre overall. Dixon played to more than 300,000 people last year and his current tour schedule through 2014 will place him in front of more than 800,000.
After his appearance on American Idol (Season 11), Dixon had national media exposure and received three Dove Award nominations, winning one for Best Contemporary Rock Album. He was also named a finalist in the recent Ryan Seacrest online Fan-Favorite American Idol Contestant from past seasons - placing 3rd overall. Colton Dixon has also been named the latest Steinway artist, following in the footsteps of folks like Harry Connick, Jr., Diana Krall and Billy Joel. Additionally, Dixon will have an exclusive ice cream flavor named after him. Boston-based boutique ice cream maker Emack & Bolio’s will debut Dixon’s unique flavor later this month.
