Live from the WRTI Performance Studio: Vocalist and Composer Julie Dexter

Julie Dexter

Born in England to Jamaican parents, vocalist and songwriter Julie Dexter is no stranger to the stage on both sides of the pond. Classically trained with an upbringing spiked with jazz and major island influences, Julie’s compositions stand out like none other. 


Julie, will be accompanist by pianist Luke Carols O’Reilly, and will join J. Michael Harrison in the WRTI 90.1 Performance Studio for a live concert at 3 PM on Wednesday, October 17th on the WRTI Facebook page.

Dexter took a leap of faith and moved to Atlanta in 1999, and since then has released a handful of projects, including a single called “Ketch A Vibe,” which was featured in national radio adds for then Presidential candidate Barack Obama. From jazz to world music, soul and beyond, Julie Dexter is built to transcend genres.

Julie Dexter, along with a full band, will perform as part of the Kimmel Center’s Sittin’ In series on Wednesday, October 17th at 9 PM.
