Fans around the world recently saw him on the main stage (and on the YouTube webcast) at Tyler, the Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival this year -- which also featured Kids See Ghosts, Pusha T, and A$AP Rocky among others.

In 2015, Rex Orange County self-released his debut "bcos u will never b free" album on SoundCloud. Based on that effort alone, O'Connor caught the eyes and ears of Two Inch Punch -- a U.K. record producer, remixer and songwriter -- who hooked him up with his management team.

The two collaborated on a few songs -- and eventually drew the attention of none other than the aforementioned Tyler, the Creator.

So Tyler did whatever any normal person would do: He flew O'Connor out to LA, where he worked on Tyler's then-upcoming album "Flower Boy."

That album, which was released in 2017, features Rex Orange County on the songs "Boredom" and "Foreword" (both of which he also co-wrote).

Earlier that year, Rex released his second album, "Apricot Princess" -- a title that comes from the nickname he's given to his girlfriend, singer Thea Morgan Murrell (pictured).

Murrell also performed with the band -- the two singing together are simply magical.

Followed by "Corduroy Dreams," "Sunflower," "Best Friend," "Happiness," and "Loving Is Easy." 'Twas a great show and we can't wait until he comes back to San Diego! Bravo!
