Praised for his technical proficiency and inspiring lyrics, Dublin rapper Rebel Phoenix has earned much love from music fans across the board. Equally at home rhyming over jazzy breakbeats, booming trap beats and atmospheric soundscapes, his diverse style knows no bounds and has played a huge part in his ability to stand out from the crowd.
His debut project R.E.B.E.L in 2014 has been followed up by an array of critically acclaimed albums, EPs and singles. With each release he further proves his artistic value and cements his status as one of the most talented and prolific figures in the Irish music scene.
Rebel's highly anticipated album 'Museum' is set for release in 2023. He promises to deliver his most well developed, exciting and divergent body of work to date.
With his last project dropping in 2019, Rebel P has still managed boost his profile with singles, TV & radio appearances, and live performances throughout Ireland and abroad.
2022 was a busy year for him. Having performed in New Yorks iconic Mercury Lounge for the second time, he also performed at festivals including Other Voices and had guest appearances at Electric Picnic and Otherside. He headlined The Sugar Club in May and accompanied Mango X Mathman on their nationwide tour.
Rebel recently made his London debut when he performed in the esteemed Soho House in Shoreditch on the 17th of March. In January he launched his latest single ‘Kaleidoscope’ in Crowbar Terrace in Dublin. The show featured an exclusive listen to the new music he’ll be releasing in 2023. His next single 'Portraits' comes out in April, accompanied by a music video shot in New York by Atlanta based filmers The Digggers. This will be followed by the vinyl and online release of his album 'Museum'.
Some of Rebels previous accolades include playing to a sold-out Mercury Lounge during his New York debut. Leading up to this he performed his song 'Sungazing' live on BBC Radio. Following that he appeared before the nation with a performance on The Tommy Tiernan Show. His song ‘Heatwaves’ featured in the award winning movie ‘Deadly Cuts’ just days before living out one of his dream gigs in the history-steeped National Concert Hall as part of the UTOPIA series curated by Una Mulally.
In November of 2021, he spoke to Dean Van Nguyen about his album and more of what's to come during an in-depth interview about Irish rap for WeTransfer's cultural website WePresent. In it he boldly explains how he "wants to bring a new level of artistic value to rap music" and that "that's the idea of this album being called 'Museum'."
