New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Dexter Allen, born in Crystal Springs, Mississippi. the son of musical Pastors Lee and Ruthie Allen, is an award-winning American blues singer, electric guitarist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. In the classic tradition of Mississippi legend B.B. King, Allen exhibits a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending and shimmering vibrato, all complimented by his smooth and powerful vocals.

He was attracted to music at a young age in church, and began his career playing the bass guitar at the age of 12 for his father's gospel group traveling around the central Mississippi area. Allen toured the world when he caught the eye of living blues legend Bobby Rush who made him the lead guitarist in his touring band. Dexter's unique style landed him the Jackson, Mississippi Music Award for Best Male Vocalist in 2008, and the following year he won the Mississippi Music Award for Entertainer of the Year honor. In 2018 Allen received the Jus' Blues Bobby Rush Blues Entertainer of the Year.

Over the years Dexter has developed a passionate, dynamic guitar driven live show which was artfully captured on this new release LIVE AT GROUND ZERO BLUES CLUB. The recording which was also captured in stunning multi-cam HD video, takes a page out of a classic high energy Delta blues show, carrying on a custom that traces all the way back to pioneer Charley Patton. In this CD Allen exemplifies a good time foot stomping showmanship that makes people want to be in his presence.
