Dexter Myers; Music

It’s a smooth silky vocal performance flowing effortlessly over lush and soulful music. It’s genuine songwriting complimented by his self-described ‘Eclectic Soul’. It’s like Maxwell but more pop. Like Seal with a more soulful edge. Like Lenny Kravitz but more urban. Step outside the box and taste the distinct flavor of Dexter Myers.

Dexter is celebrating 10 successful years in the hard-knock indie music industry with his 5th CD, “Soul Divo – The Collection. “Six Dimensions” was the start of his Indie-Soul revolution but “Soul Stories” and “RocketLove34 proved to be the CD’s that defined his sound. “Soul Divo” is a collection of Dexter’s best songs including those that propelled him to the top of the Internet radio charts and earned international airplay.

In the early stages of his career, Dexter often roamed the road less traveled. There was family pressure to become the first lawyer and a stint in Corporate America. However, music was always his constant craving. “My dad always tried to persuade me to become a lawyer and ‘write my own ticket’. I worked for a law firm for six months and it was like dying a slow death.” It was launching an independent record label that was a life altering moment. “I couldn't get an acceptable record deal so I had no choice but to do it myself. Now I have total creative freedom and I have the final word when it comes to managing my music career.”

By embracing the digital music revolution back in 1998, Dexter has secured a place in music history as a pioneer of the Indie Soul industry. It is this very choice that enables him to continue selling CD’s and downloads to a growing global fan base. “It’s an amazing feeling when people all over the world share their experiences and thoughts about my music. It really validates my decision to follow my own path come what may.” With a growing buzz and infinite possibilities, Dexter Myers will continue to soar…

Dexter Myers; Cookies

Along the journey of becoming an Indie Soul music pioneer, I would often treat fans to my Chocolate "Soul cookies” as a reward for supporting my music. Eventually the cookies became the opening act at my live shows and gained popularity alongside the music. After 10 years of special requests and raves, my homemade premium cookie brand emerged quite organically in 2008. Dexter Myers Cookies officially launched in 2009 to rave reviews. It is my intention to incorporate the energy of the music industry with the cookie business. My cookies mirror my musical taste - Decadent, Lush and full of immense flavor. I guarantee that my premium dessert offerings are among the best in the world. Every cookie is made with the utmost attention to detail and with loads of love and soul.

The IndieSoul Story

I attended what seemed like every independent music conference in the late 90’s. In my travels, I noticed the level of organization on the Indie Rock scene. In addition, there was no real focus on soul music at any of these empowerment events. The most important lesson that I took away from Howard University was to ‘be the change that you want to see in the world’. I literally turned to an Indie Soul colleague and said, “Wouldn't it be great if someone represented the interest of soul music at these events?”.

IndieSoul is born in 2003. IndieSoul is a lifestyle marketing & promotional company targeting the independent R&B/Soul community of artists and fans. The ultimate goal is to preserve, support and promote R&B/Soul music through a variety of special events, marketing programs and corporate/small business partnerships. The turbulence and uncertainty in the traditional music industry has invited the opportunity for talented & innovative minds to create a new paradigm and conduct business in a new and fair manner.

In 2006, Mike Ashley of LifeandSoulpromotions and I collaborated on a non-profit initiative to get all soul music artists and industry professionals in the same room to share ideas and experiences. The project became the Annual Indie Soul Mixer and evolved into one of the most anticipated events in the Independent Soul music industry. Our event unites the most experienced innovators in the same room to explore solutions for success in a challenging environment. After 4 successful Indie Soul Mixers, IndieSoul looks forward to supporting and promoting the Independent Soul music community.
