If you don't know that name, here is your chance to know it. Ms. Dexter IS a world renowned, award winning, British vocalist considered by many to be ONE of the MOST influential FEMALE VOCALISTS of our generation not to mention shes an excellent person to interview (my personal opinion).
Ms.Dexter was born and raised in born and raised in Birmingham, England and eventually she decided to take a chance and moved to the ATL (thats Atlanta,Georgia for those who may not know) where she launched her very own label (this is a business woman if you don't know by now...lol).
She is influenced by great legends such as Nancy Wilson, Abbey Lincoln, and Bob Marley, as well as popular icons Omar and and my personal favorite Sade. Ms.Dexter is a classically trained artist who composes and arranges her own music.( I think I said earlier ...she's a BUSINESS WOMAN...lol) .She's work with Mint Condition, Jill Scott, Bilal, and Rachelle Ferrell. Now you see why she is a POWERFUL ARTIST. She knows her stuff...and speaking of a great singer ,songwriter and above all performer check out her material which will no doubly blow-you-away !
