Dexter Jones is a four piece indie rock act from Adelaide, Australia. The current line up began in mid 2010, with ex ‘Blow up Betty’ drummer Kristy Mitchell joining lead guitarist Ben Flett, vocalist Matt Soang and bassist Ben Nash.
The Dexter Jones indie pop rock sound is derived from a wide range of musical styles. The band has chosen not to follow any one system or philosophy in their song writing. Dexter Jones like their big harmonies, catchy riffs and sing-along choruses.
In early 2010, Dexter Jones teamed up with Tim Pine from Rocking Chair Films, to produce a music video for their single ‘DCF’ which premiered on ABC2′s Rage, after it’s release in July, 2010. The video can now be viewed on the DexterJonesTV channel on YouTube,which also contains behind the scenes footage and interviews.
2011 saw Dexter Jones release the New York EP and attract the ears of JL Music Publishing Australia; signing on the dotted line at the end of July. The New York E.P. will go to the North American Airwaves Feb 14th 2012.
2012 will see the band step up several notches, supporting INXS, Vanessa Amarosi, Mark Seymor & the Undertow at the Clipsal 500 after race concert and also head out of Australia, to do their first summer tour of the U.S.A.
