Like a funkified psychedelic Woody Guthrie, Dexter certainly put the mileage behind him as he spent his early years hitching and busking around the world. As one of his self portrait lyrics portrays in a tribute to Jack Keroac: ‘Desolation angel, just a dharma bum, Lonesome traveller on the road’.
This is a seasoned traveller whose only inspiration was to live the artist’s way and to keep the music real.
Here then is an artist walked away from a major record deal in London in order to keep his integrity intact rather than become one of those who would become what the industry wanted them to be. That is not what a true artist does! It was on this journey that he developed his unique and mesmerizing guitar style – A notable feature that has won Dexter fans all over the world.
Along the way Dexter found the time to learn the arts of sound engineering and record production. Producing a #1 hit in the process. But it is in his song writing that he truly captures hearts. Now a multi-award winning songwriter, Dexter sells his CDs worldwide over the internet and at his performances. He has spent months on end at the top of various charts and enjoys a somewhat cult-like following of musicians and discerning listeners.
