Rex Orange County Concert
Thursday, May 5, 2022 | 7 p.m. at St. Augustine Amphitheatre
The St. Augustine Amphitheatre will welcome Alex O'Connor (AKA Rex Orange County) at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 5, 2022.
A gifted singer/songwriter who is also known for his literate, quirky brand of bedroom pop, O'Connor was still a teenager when he first gained attention online in 2015.
With a sound that combines jazz, hip-hop and soul influences, the Hampshire, England native rose to prominence in 2017 with Apricot Princess. The album cracked the Top Ten of Billboard's Independent Albums chart, and paved the way for his even more ambitious, jazz-inflected 2019 effort Pony.
Who Cares? will mark Rex's first release since 2020's Live at Radio City Music Hall EP taken from his two sold-out shows at the venue in 2020 just before his international Pony tour was cut short in Berlin due to Covid-19. As it turns out, however, that tour being cut short is part of the genesis of this album.
After spending the bulk of 2020 quarantined back home in the UK, Rex made the trek to Amsterdam that fall to record with Benny Sings, with whom he crafted the 2017 platinum selling breakout single Loving Is Easy.
