Born to Cristrobalina Sepúlveda, Rey was adopted by her husband Secundino D'Aza, who was of Indian origin. Antolín Soler, Rey's biological father, had little or no contact with his son in his early years. Soler, who was known one of the best güira players of Dominican Republic, has since retired and established a relationship with Rey.

As a child, Rey had to work as a shoeshine boy, selling saint's images, candy, cornbread, (cooked by his mother), and tickets from the National Lottery. Early on, he would attend the Sunday concerts in the park by his hometown's municipal band, which lit his musical spark. In his teens, he lived in La Romana where his great love for music was growing day by day. He participated and won numerous talent shows and formed a rock group called Los Magnéticos, while already a member of another one called Brahmins in Santo Domingo.

Rey's eventual success was hard fought but after a star-making stint with Johnny Ventura's orchestra he became one of the Dominican Republic's most beloved singer/songwriters of the 1970s, and was signed by the Cuban recording producer Mr. Marcos Garcia, owner of Recoding Label Montilla Records; where 4Points Records was born from. He begins his fully recording career by the hands of Mr. Marcos Garcia who started recording Fausto Rey's best romantic productions in Buenos Aires Argentina.

After a negotiation with Fania Records, previous Recording company 4Points, a recording journey with Fania Records begins. Fausto recorded two musical productions with Fania Records: 1) “El Amor es Natural" recorded in Buenos Aires Argentina and produced by Fabian Ross and "La Responsabilidad" with Larry Harlow and orchestra and produced by Larry Harlow. After a breach of contract with Fania Records by mutual agreement, Fausto Rey recorded a romantic album called: “El Nido del Amor" and later recorded a duo production with legend Dominican singer Mr. Rafael Colón; Fausto produced both albums. After few years out oh the recording studios, then he started a very popular Merengue orchestra under his own name, in association with producers George Rodriguez and Mike Rodriguez owners of Recording Label Sonidiscos from Dominican Republic which scored numerous hits, among them "El Pájaro Herido"; which became the number one hit and the record of the year awarded by the most important yearly award academy El Dorado this song is part of the first production with his own Merengue band.
