Award-winning jazz, soul and broken beat songstress Julie Dexter, a British vocalist considered by many to be one of the most influential female vocalists of our generation, calls Handsworth her hometown.
Born and raised in Birmingham, England, this classically trained artist composes and arranges her own music. Influenced by legends such as Nancy Wilson, Abbey Lincoln, and Bob Marley, as well as popular icons Omar and Sade, Julie takes classic soul to the heart of Artistry.
It was in 1999 that Julie took a leap of faith and moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she now resides. She launched her own label, Ketch A Vibe Records and in 2000 released the critically acclaimed EP Peace of Mind, followed by Dexterity (2002), and Conscious (2005). Moon Bossa, collaboration with Khari Simmons was released in 2007 and her single Ketch A Vibe was featured in national radio ads for Democratic Presidential Candidate Senator Barack Obama.
