Multi-platinum selling artist Rex Brown has signed a worldwide deal with Entertainment One (eOne) with plans to release a debut solo LP later this year.
“I’ve been working on these songs for a long time,” Brown said.
The yet-to-be-titled full-length album will be the first time in Brown’s career in which he will serve as both lead vocalist and guitarist in a band.
“I am thrilled to have such an influential artist like Rex join the growing Entertainment One rock family,” said Scott Givens, SVP Entertainment One. “He’s influenced not just our other artists, but myself as well. It’s an honor for all of us to work with him.”
Brown wields a six-string guitar as confidently as he wore the bass in Pantera and Down. His voice crackles with easygoing spirit and truth-telling power.
