LIFE: For as long as she can remember, the Phoenix-born Kim Dexter has shared a simultaneous love for the Lord and yearning to express herself through music. Her mom was a key influence, not only in cultivating that faith, but giving her piano lessons from age five onward, paving the way for numerous creative pursuits throughout her developmental years. After joining a tight-knit community while attending a Christian high school, Dexter wrote her first official song to commemorate graduation, bidding an emotional farewell to her friends, while also realizing her calling to continue pursuing music in college. After spending three years as a music major, the invitation came to intern at a prominent studio in Dallas, which naturally led to writing, touring as a background singer and recording her own music. "I was in musical heaven and never went back, diving straight into my career." 
ARTIST: Dexter's first major foray into artistry launched in the late '90s when she fronted Mayfair Laundry, the nationally touring Christian rockers (who opened for the likes of Switchfoot, Steven Curtis Chapman and Third Day), in turn, spawning additional demand for Dexter as a writer for other artists. Besides penning tracks for Bryan Duncan, Nicole C. Mullen, Avalon's Jody McBrayer, and multiple missions organizations, she also wrote the theme song for the immensely popular children's video "Bibleman" (starring "Eight Is Enough"/"Charles In Charge" favorite Willie Aames). Additional kid-friendly credits include Heaven Sake Kids, Toonacious/Word, TRU Worship, which led her to win an Angel Award (the youth industry's Grammy equivalent). From there, her first solo CD So This Is It, spawned international radio airplay for the hits "Wait" and "We Need Jesus," followed by extensive touring and television appearances.
