The Early Years
D!XON began singing at the age of six and later pursued a musical education at the Etobicoke School of the Arts and Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts where he majored in Music Theatre. He was inspired by the freedom and love for art at these schools, and continued to grow creatively as an artist. D!XON later went to the Remix Project - a school for recording artists that takes at-risk youth, nurtures their talent and educates them on what it takes to make it in the music industry.
