Dexter Wesley comes from good stock. Wesley's "Great!" uncle Rahsaan Roland Kirk played sax, flute and many other instruments, is known throughout the world as the inventor of and perfected Circular Breathing which allows for super long, continuous notes and flurries. Snoop (Lion) is also in the family tree. But Dexter Wesley is making his own name as a guitar hero for the now and the future. Inspired by Jimi Hendrix, Wesley writes songs that sound as though Hendrix himself arose from his slumber to pen a few dozen tasty gems. Of course, Dexter Wesley's Electric House pay tribute to the greatest guitarist and music innovator of all time, though strong sentiment and demand for Wesley's vibrant original songs is growing rapidly since the new era recording sessions began in 2011. With the tightest of line-ups yet, Wesley reaches new heights in 2018.
"I've been all over the world with Miles (Davis, Bass Player) and George Clinton and still have not heard anyone play like you!"
- Foley, Former Miles Davis'
"I had the pleasure to once again witness his electrifying performance this past weekend. At first glance Dex's style, dress, stage appearance and musical blend remind you of Jimi Hendrix. The brother can make his electric guitar scream bloody blues, fusion rock and soulful vibes."
