Guitar based, blues influenced rock. Gritty, raunchy and pounding, yet subtle, driving and melodic.
Roger Dexter is without doubt one of the most successful composers working today. His works are heard by millions across the TV, Internet and Radio every day. Blues and Rock Music are in his DNA! “My musical roots include listening to ‘T Bone Walker’ and to other Delta Blues artists, I still remember seeing Eric Clapton with ‘John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers’ at the ‘Marquee Club’ an event I will never forget”. I have really enjoyed writing and performing the tracks for ‘Smoking Blues Rock and I also got to play my 3 string ‘Cigar Box’ guitar on one track, what a joy!!
