With his dazzling smile, amazing voice and authentic Newfoundland accent, it?s no wonder Rex Goudie is one of the favorites with the fans. His debut album ?Under the Lights? hit #6 on the Soundscan Charts, reached platinum status and yielded 2 hit singles including the #1 charting hit ?Run?. Rex also completed two successful tours that spanned the country. He had a one hour TV special Melissa & Rex: Let It Go that aired nationally on CTV and was recognized with nominations at the 2005 Juno Awards in the prestigious categories of ?Artist of the Year? and ?Album of the Year?.
Now, Rex is ready to do it all over again with the release of his sophomore album ?Look Closer?. Rex has writing credits on five songs on the new album. His motivation for song writing came primarily from personal experiences. Rex also enjoyed the creative process in discovering songs from other talented songwriters.
When it came time to record, Rex?s inquisitive nature helped him log many hours in the studio. ?Look Closer? blends Rex?s many musical tastes to make a sound truly his own. The album is about Rex and shows where he wants to go as an artist and who he will be in the future.
