R E L is 22 years old, 3 years young. Describing her music as EVOCA-POP™, R E L envelopes music and melody with feeling - a sensory experience, love, light and magic. The young independent artist has amassed close to 2 million Spotify streams, a million Youtube views and is at work on a 3- side visual album, EVOCA-POP™, about self love, recovery and empowerment.
The LA-based artist has received critical acclaim, featured in notable media outlets including Hillydilly, Ones to Watch, Huffington Post, Wonderland Magazine and MTV Iggy. With the success of her debut EP, which she funded with a Kickstarter campaign, the young artist has headlined and performed at high profile venues and industry showcases throughout Los Angeles such as School Night, BMI Acoustic Lounge, NiteLight, SoFar Sounds, Balcony TV, The Peppermint Club, Hunnypot Live, Writer’s Block and Echo Park Rising.
R E L looks forward to releasing the next chapter of music, a three-part visual album called EVOCA-POP™. EVOCA-POP™ is a project about recovery and self-love, consciousness and heart opening.
R E L invented her own genre because she believes categories force something (and someone) into a mold. No one fits a mold exactly, it can be dangerous to try or to think you’re supposed to. “I grew up in the suburbs, where we tried so hard to fit the molds. We hurt ourselves, hated ourselves, f*cked ourselves over. I did it for a long time. It hurt...and it doesn't just exist in suburbs. We do it everywhere. Music is medicine. It’s powerful. Love heals, melody carries, lyrics speak the heart.
Thank you for listening & stay tuned.
