Beginning in the mid 90s when he went on a 2 1/2 yr walk-about, playing with bands and artists from Tijuana to Buenos Aires. During this time Dexter visited Brazil for 10 months, where he recorded with samba icon Beth Carvalho, and where met the late Gaudencio Thiago de Mello, composer/percussionist who in early life had coached soccer legend Garincha, with a championship Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro team. It was there he recorded his first instrumental album as lead solo voice, with Thiago and composer guitarist, Antonio Mello.

Dexter Payne accompanies PTW about twice a year, in rotation with other musical souls. Playback is an amazing group of actors, a description that barely scratches the surface. With sensitivity, tenderness, wit and creative boldness, they have been playing back stories from the audience for years. Always fresh, always relevant.
