He soon progressed on to the Lewisham gifted and talented programme where he went on to win some awards. Dexter Hercules has also played at various locations and events around London including the Royal Festival Hall.
Dexter Hercules likes to play RnB, Jazz, fusion and gospel and he is currently in a band called Barak, who perform at a number of gospel functions.
