R E L describes her music as EVOCA-POP – a genre the 23-year old singer-songwriter created in 2016…music that makes you think and feel. "Surgery" is the first single release from EVOCA-POP, a 3-side visual album. It's about love, self compassion & healing. It's the 3rd track on Side A, and was co-written with Will Everett, produced by ADHD, as well as mastered by Greg Calbi.
R E L released a crowd-funded debut EP in 2015 called r.e.l., which garnered notable praise from music bloggers and fans. The young, independent artist has amassed over 2 million Spotify streams, 1 million Youtube views, and is at work on a 3-side visual album, EVOCA-POP™, about self-love.
R E L has played shows in LA and SF since putting out her debut project including Peppermint Club, Dirty Laundry, the Satellite, The Mint, BMI’s Acoustic Lounge, Chris Douridas (KCRW), MFG’s School Night at the Bardot, Nitelight Sunset Strip, Writer's Block, and Echo Park Rising.

Her single, "A Little Bit Sometimes" has been added to playlists including Spotify's Fresh Finds, Fresh Finds Poptronix, and US Viral 50 playlists.
In addition, she has over 500,000 views on her music video entitled, "Before The Storm", which is featured in British, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, and Japanese publications. However, the city she most identifies with is Los Angeles, where she has lived nearly half her life.
From creating her own genre, to working as an independent artist, R E L is definitely a musical firecracker who will brightly shine over the music industry.
