Julie Dexter puts soul in Vibe magazine's VSessions

By Artesia Peluso

“I’ve been doing this all my life — before Jill, before Erykah — all the music I performed tonight was songs that I’ve been singing for years. I’m just introducing myself to a new audience," says Julie Dexter, the sultry, independent Atlanta soul singer/songwriter. "It feels good to get my message out. I’ve always wanted to just express myself.”

Only fifteen minutes earlier Dexter was on stage performing her provocative single “Ketcha Vibe” and now she stands at the entrance of the Loft on West Peachtree doing a little self-marketing while fanning away perspiration.

Vibe magazine hosted its VSessions concert series for the first time in Atlanta last Thursday night in an effort to help both new and established artists expand their audience. The free event was hosted by Kenny Burns, former Roc-A-Fella VP, and featured a truly eclectic lineup, including Grand Hustle’s Yung LA, Tearra Mari, and DTP’s Rudy Currence, with DJ Cannon providing the mix. To top off the night, Slim of 112 performed his single “So Fly” while a small mob of camera phone toting fans — myself included — snapped away.
