Dixon was born in Birmingham, Warwickshire in 1965 to Guyanese parents. He won the prestigious Ian Charleson Award for his 1991 performance as Jacques in Cheek by Jowls' all-male production of As You Like It, and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role for his 2003 performance in The Roman Actor at the Gielgud Theatre (Royal Shakespeare Company).
He began acting at Castle Vale Comprehensive, where the drama teacher encouraged him to join the Birmingham Youth Theatre with his contemporary, Barry Aird. Dixon graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and Castle Vale Comprehensive (now Greenwood Academy). He also has extensive performances in film and television. A professional tenor, Joe Dixon sang the lead role in The Bacchae opera at Queen Elizabeth Hall, and was in the top ten in Denmark, Spain, and Russia for backing vocals. He excels in playing the euphonium, guitar, tuba, and piano.
