Julie Dexter Kicks off 720 on 7/20

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

Fans and critics across the globe have followed her journey  through the circles of  Jazz, Soul, Broken-Beat, Bossa-Nova, Reggae and Afro-Beat. Her dynamic voice was first heard in 1994 on "The Jamaican Beat" Vol I with Jazz Jamaica. Soon after she was invited by Jazz legend Courtney Pine OBE to join him on tour as lead vocalist for his ensemble. She later  became a member of J-Life, a European Jazz quintet 
formed by Gary Crosby and led by Jason Yarde. They 
toured several continents as Ambassadors for the British Council winning numerous international a wards and 
released their debut on Dune Records in 1997. 

 This dynamic artist will be kicking off our 720 on 7/20: a five day celebration of fashion, coffee, and culture,  with a live music event.  Its been a few years since Julie Dexter was last in Pittsburgh but on July 20 @ 8pm she will be performing music from her latest Cd as well as a few of her classics.  Follow the link below to the FB event page and click attending.>>>
