Growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Rector never expected to immerse himself in the music scene. Though he spent his childhood learning piano and eventually picking up the guitar in his teen years as he transitioned to singing and songwriting, Rector was not truly serious about his music until he studied at the University of Arkansas. There, Rector released his first self-titled EP, launching his music career as he began playing live shows. By the time he graduated, Rector had released two full-length albums and was ready to make a move to Nashville to dive head-first into the music industry.
Now, Rector has made a name for himself as both an artist and songwriter. He’s released seven studio albums, including Brand New (2015) which peaked in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, and Magic (2018) which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart.
Last year, he used his experience to be an all-star mentor on ABC hit show American Idol alongside Ryan Tedder, Jewel, Jason Aldean, Jimmie Allen, Joss Stone, etc. In addition, Rector’s music has been used in over 100 television and film placements, including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Pretty Little Liars, American Idol, among others, and his sold-out amphitheater shows have landed him television performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, the TODAY Show, and Live! with Kelly and Ryan.
When the pandemic hit, Rector took the time to pour into his music as much as possible and has since announced his upcoming album, The Joy Of Music is scheduled for release on March 11, 2022.
