Artist: Rex Goh
Rex Goh is arguably Australia’s ‘most heard’ guitarist. His list of credits over a long and stellar career would be remarkable enough in itself; but this is only part of the story. What makes Rex very special is that he puts the same amount of preparation and effort into a Saturday afternoon gig at a pub, as he does into appearing on stage at the Sydney Opera House or backing the contestants on Australian Idol. Rex does this week in, week out, for anyone and everyone; and he does it with skill, style, consistency, patience, musicality and good humour.
