JOIN ME AS I TALK WITH THIS VERY INTERESTING ARTIST "EVG REBEL" ABOUT HER LIFE AN WHAT MUSIC MEANS TO HER. AND ABOUT HER JOURNEY WITH HER LOVE OF MUSIC AND THE ARTS FROM A VERY YOUNG AGE.
EVG Rebel is a female artist born in Queens, NY and raised in the state of New Jersey. Her love for the arts started early (age 4) and began with the particualr expression of dance. The high expenses of dance classes left her unable to continue with teaching but never stopped her passion. As she grew older, she took up playing various instruments such as the saxaphone and the piano. Listening to legends such as Whitney Houston, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, and others as a child helped uncover her secret love early in life for writing music, which stayed with her all the way through her young adult years. Gracing stages as a back up dancer for many well known artists such as Lil Mama and LL Cool J while also being in numerous videos, music has always played a big role in her lifestyle. It wasn't until she started secretly posting Youtube videos of her rapping and singing that people started to take notice of her natural talent for songwriting and artistry. Becoming a youtube sensation propelled her into the forefront of many famous artists and producers willing to lend a hand a work with EVG. "Being a part of the industry taught/ teaches me a lot. You have to have a strong sense of self when being an artist...ESPECIALLY as a woman.
