WHO BUILT ME: Dexter Jordan was Composed by a Fellow Artist

Charlotte R & B singer Dexter Jordan is gifting us with his gorgeous voice and layered harmonies on the very week we all need the healing power of music. 

His new EP, Dexterity, is out now and it’s got a lineup that will have listeners searching their souls and embracing the world around them as they see it through Jordan’s fresh eyes. 

Tracks such as “Acid Rain,” “Shooting Star” and “Black Baby” are pierced with arresting spoken-word moments. Jon Blount, Dave James, BARZZ, Braxton Bateman and Milksop and His Skeletons all appear on the EP, which has the magical, musical fingerprints of Charlotte’s own Jason Jet all over it. 

Jet recorded, mixed and mastered all the songs, while also producing “Contradicting,” for which Jordan released a music video in July. Matt Olin sat down with Dexter Jordan in The Biscuit’s Zoom Room for a “Who Built Me” conversation, and the impact of Jason Jet on this rising vocal artist became abundantly clear.

The “Who Built Me” series is sponsored by Foundation For The Carolinas.
