Biography

Rex Anthony grew up in Houston, Tx and started singing at an early age in the gospel church where his father was a minister. His mother was a christian lady who somehow understood her talented and gifted son with the chameleon-like personality. She encouraged his many talents and achievements as he was in his youth more of a creative artist through drawing and painting. One day he sat out to enroll in art school to take courses in becoming a fashion illustrator but was quickly prompt and groomed to be a fashion model due to his tall, tawny skin and handsome statuesque. His flair for fashion took another turn while he was on a modeling assignment at a local college. There he discovered the world of fashion designing of where he trained in couture designing and eventually grabbed the skirt tail of NYC.

After being in NYC and the hectic world of fashion designing for several years, he'd listen to his music demo recordings for a sense of comfort and simply to overcome being homesick, he soon realized that music was his ultimate form of expression. After quitting the fashion industry, in year 2003 he produced his debut cd “I AM” under his independent Neptune Records label which established him as a unique and well-know performer, one of few leading black rockers in the NY underground scene.

Now after four years since “I AM” had been released, but still very much in linger, Rex Anthony is back again with yet another intimate and romantic storytale cd entitled “LOVE DENIED”, 2007. While honing his chops on his acoustic guitar, he found himself engulfed by the inspiration of American poetess, Emily Dickinson. He himself is enriched by her way of words and how she wrote down her poetic expressions of such passion and romance. Rex is truly one of the last romantics, just listen to the lyrics and music of songs like ”You’re So Beautiful” and “Hands and Hearts”. With the sincere expressions of his deep soothing vocals he causes love and passion to come alive in the most extraordinary way. “LOVE DENIED” cd is a collection of eleven of his most heartfelt songs ever. Written from a lover’s point of view and escorting you through relations full of desire, adoration, love, passion and romance, ending in a lonesome deviation. The music is Rex’s own unique way of innovative and creative concepts breathe to life by collaborating with the brilliance of musician/ producer Gabrielis K, it’s a marriage of guitar rhythms, trip hop beats and the most beautiful chords orchestrated in the most lyrical way.

YOU'RE SO BEAUTIFUL

Written By: REX ANTHONY

YOU’RE SO BEAUTIFUL
WORDS AND MUSIC BY REX ANTHONY

You’re so beautiful . . . . ..
You’re so beautiful . . . . . .
You’re so beautiful . . . . . .
You’re so beautiful . . . . . .

Beautiful sexy thang
Would you wear my platinum ring
Cuz' you’re so beautiful...

I wanna pack my life
And be wherever you are
Cuz' you've come to me
the one I've waited for

OH......
OH, OH.......

I'm giving all of me
So baby you can't you see
That I belong to you
And that my Heart is true

Thy emotions my pleasure
Baby how could I measure
This feeling I get inside
When I look in to your eyes

Cuz you’re so beautiful

..............beautiful
You’re so beautiful

WAR AND BATTLE

Written By: REX ANTHONY

WAR AND BATTLE
WORDS AND MUSIC BY REX ANTHONY

The war inside your mind
Is the defender of your heart
It fires up you emotions
As your drama plays his part

The pressure feels your veins
And runs on empty tracks
Your strong but fragile spine
Cradles the monkey on your back

Your love you dare to share
The light you can not see
A cat traces your steps
With curiosity

Now the war inside your mind
Is tearing you to the ground
And your clinging to the edge of death
And all of your angels have gone

The battle inside your brain
Is the killer of your soul
Your fading out with time
And before you know it you'll be old

War and battle
Mind of matter
With serenity afar
Do you know who you are?

Right now the stage is set
To decide your wills and wont's
For days not to regret
Embed your moral don'ts

Now your plate is full
But it's all to much to swallow
Like the little boat who could
You could do some good with your
Knowledge power

WIND OF CHANCES

Written By: REX ANTHONY

WIND OF CHANCES
WORDS AND MUSIC BY REX ANTHONY

Close the door before its to late
Don't let the wind inside
It'll sweep me away
Sometime you are hard to understand
And I'm so uncertain of your nearest plans

Would you look into a crystal ball
Reveal your palms that says it all
Can you read into my pulsive mind
What's the signal where's the signs

OH...........The wind of chances

I could be your prince on a white horse
But is there any passion in your heart
Why would I not want you for myself
But tell me do you want somebody else

The winds of chances comes to blow me down
My fate holds me up above the ground
Some people have questioned my sense of pride
But what's the explanation for when your by my side

OH...........The wind of chances

Some people chase secrets, some people chase lies
But truth is a virtue to my sincere eyes
I don't want to put a chip on your shoulder
We are both still young but we are getting older

The wind of chances to change in time
And chances are you cannot be mine
But still you say let's take it slowly
After all that's said and down we are we going

The wind of chances
OH............The wind of chances

MIND GAMES

Written By: REX ANTHONY

MIND GAMES
WORDS AND MUSIC BY REX ANTHONY

You try to weave a string into my mind
But I'm letting you go I'll be fine
You tried to play me with your mind games
But I don't have time for your heart deranged

You've been telling me this and telling me that
But your lies are all white hiding the facts
And if I didn't know your secret code
I'd been your love fool until I'm gray and old

Sound the alarm I fault you playing mind games
The things you do could be your just insane

When the chips were down
I just couldn't figure you out
Now I know the score and
The cheat your all about
Cuz' you didn't tell me that your sleeping with another man
So that I could cut my hair and wash my hands

Sound the alarm I know your playing mind games
The things you say could be that your just displaced

Playing mind games, mind games
Mind games, mind games

WANTED

Written By: REX ANTHONY

WANTED
WORDS AND MUSIC BY REX ANTHONY

I wonder if you've ever had neon dreams
I've had a few they all were so heavenly
Reminds me of all that I thought could have been
But now I find myself alone once again

By wanting you it makes me sad
The worst is to want something you know is bad

For you I did just about anything
I gave my first I gave my last of everything
My wistful heart and elated eyes longed for you
But your not here and there's nothing else I can do

I reached so high for my one desire
Your all that I wanted

I guess someone will come around
To pick me up cuz' I am down
And tell me that they want me too
And want me like I wanted you

Left all alone once again
No chance to sort things out thick or thin
I wanted you but I'm not wanted
