Dex Neeld, the insanely multi-talented instrumentalist and vocalist, hails from New Albany, Indiana. Husband to Holly Neeld. Dog father to “Scooch” - the pumpkin Welsh terrier. Dex first tried singing after hearing “all that she wants” by Ace of Base in 1993. One year later, learned to rap by watching and rewatching Snoop Doggy Dogg’s “what’s my name?” on the 90s MTV rotation. Later he hosted elementary school “rap battles” during recess. He would spend the next decade performing original songs. In 2009, he formed the band “Homegrown" during his time at IU. Later he added Josh Inzer and Sydney Magers to the band. Daniel Farmer and other Juice Box Heroes attended Harvest Homecoming in 2012 and saw Dex and Sydney perform with Homegrown. Soon after, Dex and Sydney were invited to become members of JBH.
