New single “Asian Driver” pokes fun at racial stereotypes

Toronto – Feb. 18, 2017 - After successfully launching debut single “Asian Driver” with a lyric video on YouTube on New Year’s Day (watch here), local singer/songwriter RexySpice releases his long awaited debut album ARSENAL on March 3, 2017. An album of punk-influenced pop with a queer bent, the unapologetic RexySpice serves up insightful, humorous and sometimes explicit life observations that make plain his views on everything from racial stereotypes and elitist rock snobbery to oral sex and one night stands gone awry. The album is now available on pre-order now on iTunes and at rexyspice.com, where it comes with a free download of the song “Asian Driver.”

In an age of increasing social division, RexySpice aims to not only to provoke but to unite like-minded individuals with his pointed, provocative takes on modern life. With sometimes abrasive language, songs on ARSENAL -- with titles like “Big Dick,” “I Wish I Were A Lesbian” and “S.S.W.B.” (“Sexy Skinny White Boys”) -- have been simultaneously entertaining, provoking, and enraging audiences in the local Toronto acoustic circuit for years. The “Asian Driver” lyric video attracted thousands of visitors to his Facebook page upon its New Year’s Day release.

Since 2005, RexySpice (also known throughout the years as Allen Rex and Rex Baunsit) has been garnering attention for his open-chord acoustic punk performances that, in the words of Susan G. Cole, mix “politics with a dash of punk.” With candor and mocking self-awareness, he describes his songs as “funny, angry, political, and horny–often, all at once. If Chrissie Hynde and Billy Bragg had a kid raised by Madonna and Ani DiFranco, I’d like to think he’d sound exactly like me.”

He has shared stages with noted local icons from Crackpuppy to Ryan G. Hinds, and made waves at events like Pride 2012 (CPSS stage) and Queer Idol 2010 (where he made the semifinals). His next major concert appearance is set for the day of ARSENAL’s release -- March 3rd, 2017 -- at the historic Paddock Tavern in downtown Toronto. This will serve as the launch party for his new album, with support from acclaimed local punk acts T.C. Folkpunk and Terrible And The Horribles.
