Swings & Roundabouts
DOLPHIN AWARDS ALBUM OF THE YEAR '97 NOMINATED IN 5 CATEGORIES Best Male Vocal - Best New Recording Talent - Best Jazz song 'Mr.Music Deal'- Best Folk Song 'Moving Breeze'- Best Album / Album of the Year. Dexters' first release, and a special album to him for that reason. 'This is the one I broke out with. It has also been a huge boost that it has done so well'. This independent release has been exported now to over 27 cities world-wide. HEARd Magazine: Dexter Moore has produced an amazing bunch of 13 songs which stand out not only because of the quality of the songwriting, but also because of the very slick production. Five of the songs here were recorded live at somewhere called The Bunkhouse in Byron Bay & it sounds like the crowd were very appreciative, the pick of these being the very interesting lyrical content of 'Mr Music Deal', though 'Citibluze' is also cool. Much of the music here has a fairly high element of funk, though some of the slower songs have a more emotional blues style. Pick of the album here is 'Altered State', which moves the pace up a little, though 'Passionflower' is pretty cool & more in the slower end of Dexter's musical spectrum. Having already won an award for this album, I think we'll be hearing a lot more from him in the very near future. Dexter Moore is a stylistically unique guitarist as well as a powerful soul vocalist who writes incisive lyrics and memorable melodies. His music crosses many boundaries and leaves listeners both moved and inspired.
