Their sophomore album, 'Torch Song' is now available on AR Classic Records.
I’m starting to find that balance between what people want to hear from me and where I musically want to take them,” explains Boston MA native Dutch ReBelle “If I can walk into a room and control the crowd, it just pushes me to keep writing my story.”
More and more people are responding to ReBelle’s story. Dutch ReBelle (ne’ Vanda Bernadeau) has seen the positive energy that she has built for herself in Boston’s hip hop scene to become genuine respect. Audiences are connecting to her mix of introspective punch line filled lyrics and raw golden-era influenced and trap beats that are built for the turn up.
After sharing stages with artists from Action Bronson, Big K.R.I.T., Cam’ron, Wu Tang Clan, and Melanie Fiona and the release her critically praised mix tapes, “Beauty vs. The Beast” and “Married To The Music”, Dutchy saw the love come from all angles. ReBelle was part of the Boston Phoenix’s “Freshmen Hip Hop Class”, awarded “Best Artist” at The Fab Empire’s Fab Awards and won “Best Female-Hip Hop” at the 2011 New England Urban Music Awards along with “Best Group- Hip Hop” for her work with the group Famous Nobodies. The Boston Globe called her “The ReBelle with A Cause” and solidified her as a respected emcee on the rise.
With a style that makes seem like the lovechild of Ghostface Killah and Lauryn Hill, Dutch brings aggression and intellect to every verse. In a world where female MC’s feel forced to sell sex in order to get attention, she’s committed to tell the rest of the story. Critics and fans alike are also responding to Dutch’s music for its distinctive sound; a sound that couldn’t have come from anywhere else but the Bean. The foundation for the island-born but city raised ReBelle came from the unique mix of music that surrounded her in the Boston area.
“I would be at school with my friends and it was Nas, Dipset, Wu-Tang Clan and my favorite Styles P. MC’s that I loved or dancehall artists like Mavado or Vybz Kartel. Like the meanest and hardest joints ever.” said ReBelle. “Then at home my parents listened to music from all around the world; compas, zouk, African music, cubano. I could come home and my dad is bumping Eric Clapton or Bob Marley and my mom is watching an Andrea Boccelli performance. You can hear all of that in my music. That’s why I feel comfortable rocking on all types of beats.” ReBelle has been popping up and solidifying herself as a fierce performer with a spot on national radar with performances at major annual festivals such as A3C, the Brooklyn Hip-Hop festival and the SXSW (South by Southwest) annual festival in Austin, Texas. After ReBelle’s “Sunday Morning” video featuring Amandi Music was featured on MTV’s RapFix Live, the emcee has been featured in numerous major music publications such as The Source,Complex, The Improper Bostonian, HipHopDX and nominated for XXL's 2015 Hip Hop Freshmen List. Now with more eyes than ever on her after and the release of her "ReBelle Diaries" project, ReBelle is ready to conquer the sonic world with her latest 6-song EP release, "Kiss Kiss" available now on iTunes.
