NOTE: Dwight Lenox sadly passed away on December 15th, 2016, leaving behind a great legacy in the Columbus jazz scene. Read his Columbus Dispatch obituary here.
For more than 20 years, Dwight Lenox’s rich tenor voice and dynamic presence has captivated audiences around the country.
Growing up in New York, Dwight 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 Sammy Tucker and renowned organist Hank Marr. He’s been showcased alongside the likes of Freddie Hubbard, Bobbie Humphrys, 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 Bradford.
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 in his performance of original music. He’s sung on numwerous 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.
