"East African-influenced music"

Multi-hyphenate and multi-instrumentalist Dexter Story has used his many talents in a supportive role serving a who’s who of iconic artists throughout his career. From tenures as Snoop Dogg’s product manager and Meshell Ndegeocello’s day-to-day representative to performing with post-millennial luminaries like Dwight Trible, Quadron, Sa-Ra Creative Partners and Gaslamp Killer, Los Angeles-based Story has a proven track record of lending the assist to established and emerging artistry. On his new Soundway Records release Wondem, we find him distilling his diverse background in soul, funk, jazz and folk idioms into his own unique and worldly voice. This collection of East African-influenced music borrowing from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, Somalia, and Kenya could easily be one of the breakthrough albums of 2015, a testament to Story’s decades of dedication to artistic excellence.
