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 to become 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 when 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 several years, listening to his music demo recordings for a sense of comfort and simply to overcome being homesick, he soon realized that his music was his ultimate form of expression. In year 2003 he produced his debut CD " I AM" under the Neptune Records label. Though it didn't reach monumental record sells, it surely established him as a unique and well-know performer, one of few leading black rockers on the 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 but a romantic tale in a storybook CD version entitled "LOVE DENIED". 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.
