He started singing in doo wop groups in the early 1950s. By 1955 his song “Why baby why” had provided Pat Boone with an international hit. By 1960 Dixon was working with Scepter-Wand records and was responsible for hits by The Shirelles and others. He later moved to other record companies and was for a while married to the singer Inez Foxx.
