the Lenox Avenue Express
Growing up in New York,
DWIGHT LENOX honed his talent in the church choir. He went on to study and perform
musical styles as diverse as country and rock n' roll. But his gospel roots, combined with
such childhood influences as Nancy Wilson, Nat Cole, and Sarah Vaughn, made jazz a natural
showcase for his talent.
From blues to ballads
and jazz to swing, Dwight shines. His impeccable instincts and mellow sound have garnered
the attention of some of the finest musicians in the industry. He's performed with Sammu
Tucker and renowned organist Hank Marr. He's been showcased alongside the likes of Freddie
Hubbard, Bobbie Humphreys, Ramsey Lewis, and Herbie Mann. And as featured vocalist with
the 17-piece Columbus Jazz Orchestra, he's shared the stage with Harold Jones and Carmen
Dwight's fluid style lends itself to a vast repertoire from Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, James Ingram, Stevie Wonder, Lou Rawls and many more. But his raw abilities are uniquely evidenced n his performance of original music. He's sung on numerous recordings, including works for commercial and corporate use. He's an accomplished studio session singer. And not surprisingly, Dwight is a talented songwriter himself.
Performing at galas, fund raisers, private parties and clubs with his own band The Lenox Avenue Express, Dwight's career has taken him from New York to LA to the heart of the Midwest. Once you hear this gifted vocalist, you'll agree that this is the start of a long and successful musical journey.
