NOTICE – UPDATE ON MARSHA AMBROSIUS HEALTH & CANCELLATIONS:
Regarding Marsha Ambrosius’s cancellation of Dec 19th & 20th 2012 due to ill health here’s a copy of Marsha’s Doctors note that she posted publicly on twitter: http://instagram.com/p/TdsSuZN6LD/

We put life and health before gigs and events at KTF – we wish Marsha a full recovery ASAP. 

Our twitter feed at http://twitter.com/keepthefaithful can be viewed by all easily on a PC or phone regardless of whether you’re a twitter member & will reach quicker than a mass email-out. Due to the mechanics of how mass email outs work they may arrive much later than when sent which is why we post on publicly on twitter too. Everyone who purchased a ticket who left an email should now have been emailed.
Your email may have arrived after our twitter feed update..

Regardless of which artist, event or promoter – in this net age we always recommend checking the net and your emails before leaving for gigs and events regarding situations like this. Thanks for your continued patience, understanding, attendance and loyal support.
Thanks for keeping the faith in good, Soul music, KTF.

ABOUT JULIE DEXTER:
Julie Dexter is a world renowned, award winning, British vocalist considered by many to be one of the most influential female vocalists of our generation. Having shared the spotlight with a host of cutting-edge artists, including Mint Condition, Jill Scott, Bilal, Omar, Loose Ends, Rachelle Ferrell, Ledisi, Eric Roberson and Raheem DeVaughn to name a few, Julie not only holds up her own with them but has been praised and respected by them too.

Born and raised in Birmingham, England, this classically trained artist composes and arranges her own music. Influenced by legends such as Nancy Wilson, Abbey Lincoln, and Bob Marley, as well as popular icons Omar and Sade, Julie takes classic soul to the heart of Artistry. Fans and critics across the globe have followed her journey through the circles of Jazz, Broken-Beat, Bossa-Nova, Reggae, Afro-Beat and Soul. Her dynamic voice was first heard in 1994 on “The Jamaican Beat” Vol 1 with Jazz Jamaica then later in 1997 on Dune Records’ release of J-Life, a European Jazz quintet formed by Gary Crosby and led by Jason Yarde. She later toured several continents with Jazz legend Courtney Pine as the lead vocalist for his ensemble. It was in 1999 that Julie took a leap of faith and moved to Atlanta, Georgia where she now resides. She launched her own label, Ketch A Vibe Records and in 2000 released the critically acclaimed EP Peace of Mind, followed by Dexterity (2002) , and Conscious (2005). Moon Bossa, a collaboration with Khari Simmons was released in 2007 and her single “Ketch A Vibe” was featured in national radio ads for Democratic Presidential Candidate Senator Barrack Obama.

From Jazz to World Music, Soul and beyond, Julie Dexter is one of an elite few whose talent can transcend genres. She makes it all work on her own terms, as an audaciously independent artist with an undeniable connection to her audience. Julie’s new album ‘New Again” was released in April 2011 to great critical acclaim – available from all good music stores now.
