Introduction to the series

Welcome to a new series on Proudly dedicated to showcasing the amazing array of talented LGBTQ+ artists in the music industry today.

Music as a whole can be subjective and is the most diverse artistry in the world. So we are going to bring you a variety of different artists from all different backgrounds, music genres and stories. 

Our second music artist is the unique and gifted singer that is IAMREBELWILL.

Introducing IAMREBELWILL

My name is Anthony and I perform under the name, IAMREBELWILL.

I am a proud LGBTQIA+ artist born in Montreal, Canada now based in Toronto, Canada. My genre of music is Pop with RnB & House. My Influences are Kaytranada and Sam Smith.

I recently released my first single ‘Hot Blooded‘ from my debut record, RebelFuturism (Spring 2021).

Hot Blooded” is simply an anthem on being free spirited.

I spent a huge portion of my life afraid to be myself and this upcoming project, Rebel Futurism, allowed me to finally be authentically Rebel!

My ultimate goal is to use my voice to challenge the stereotypical perspective in mainstream pop music and help empower the underrepresented LGBTQIA+ and POC community to be fearlessly themselves.
