Singer | Songwriter | Producer
Rex, born Rex Anthony Evans III, is an Atlanta native nurtured by southern culture. He is a multi-faceted artist whose niche is a unique approach to pop and soul fusion. Being influenced by Prince, Cameo and The Weeknd, Rex creates music that speaks to cross generations and cultures. He is melodically rich, lyrically prolific, musically rhythmic, and vocally hypnotic.
“My mind moves very fast so I would get bored waiting on my favorite artists to release new music, so started to make my own. It started in high school with me writing, and recording my friends. Then borrowing my mom’s computer to make beats. As I think back, since she is a musician (playing for outkast and many more), doing music comes instinctively and organically as any other common gesture I express. Now, I go into the booth, without pen or pad, allowing aflow of melodies and lyrics to come out. ”
Rex grew up in the studio because his mother, Debra Killings, is a staple in Atlanta’s music scene. She is a bass player and vocalist who has contributed to records by TLC, Monica, OutKast, Goodie Mob, Madonna, Aretha Franklin and Jay-Z to name a few.
Rex writes, produces and sings all of his music with the exception of a few collaborations with, Dallas Austin, a music producer responsible for hits by Michael Jackson, Madonna, Pink, TLC and many others.
Rex Evans is a refreshing, emerging talent entering the music scene with a precise intention to deliver. A millennial with substantive abounding content and one worth your attention.
