Bio

Music has always been a huge part of Rex's life, growing up in the small, out-port community of Burlington, Newfoundland. At the age of three, Rex was already demonstrating his ability to perform, serenading his grandmother with songs he learned in Sunday School. Then in high school, Rex formed a band called the Purple Monkey Bomb Squad where he fostered his love for performing live. "I thrive on the pressure of performing live, feed on the emotion of the crowd, it's such a rush," says Rex. Music has also been a good method of cleansing for Rex. "I couldn't live without my guitar and my music. It's always been there for me through the toughest times of my life." This rings true on the album, each song, ripe with emotion and a true representation of something that remains very important to Rex.

Rex's love for performing is the reason his cousin sent him off to St. John's on a dare, to try out for Canadian Idol and a chance at stardom. He was always very passionate about music, but being from a small town of only 400 people, seven hours away from the nearest urban centre he never thought a career in music was realistic. Although Rex was the runner up on Canadian Idol, his confidant stage presence, charisma and undeniable talent landed him a recording contract with Sony BMG.

Rex's penchant for songwriting was immediately evident when the writing and recording process began and he effortlessly collaborated on four of the songs on the album: Strong Enough, Call Your Name , Who am I and Break the Silence .

Rex worked with an array of talented writers and producers on this album, including Chris Perry and Adam Alexander, aka Perry/Alexander, Rob Wells, Fred St Gelais, Jeff Dalzeil
Marc Jordan, Dave (Dwave) Thompson and Christopher Ward.

Musically Rex draws from a wide range of artists, including The Foo Fighters, as well as Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers among others and those influences are evidenced strongly, throughout Rex's debut effort. Rex also admires heritage artists like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Seger and hopes to one day, create his own definitive style, not unlike these great artists, he so admires and respects.

Since his debut release and it’s subsequent follow-up Rex has found his new home on the road playing for his legions of fans. Armed with a new record, "One Hundred Pages Later", coming out Fall 2010, Rex will be invading the airwaves for a long time to come.
