Biography

Pop and Acoustic music is what you’ll think of when you first hear this fun spirited bright artist, Rebecca Nazz. Growing up in South India, Canada and Kuwait, this Indo Canadian multi-talented singer/songwriter entertains with an intimate acoustic performance on guitar and an energized club performance backed by dancers. Coming up from the underground she writes her own material, offering a poignant blend of poetic lyrics and thoughtful melodies. She quickly became part of the local music scene in Canada through open mic venues in Toronto and Halifax with performances at at C'est Wat, Mitzi Sisters, Holy Joes, Gingers Tavern, Roogues Roost and Pogue Fado. She was invited to perform at the Toronto’s largest South Asian Festival, Masala Mehndi Masti, (MMM) and has also performed at the El Mocambo, Harlem, The Rivoli and The Opera House. She collaborated with world-renowned reggae artist Apache Indian, known for his hits “Boom Shack-A-Lak” and “Chok There” on her single “Indian Boy” for her EP “Intimate”. Electrifying from start to finish, her material can be defined as upbeat pop songs with Western/East Indian influences and a lyrical message for everyone. In light of her recent EP release, she was profiled on OMNI TV with Bollywood Boulevard, Masala Canada with CBC radio, Brit Asia TV, UK, Desi Fashion Magazine, South Asian Generation Next, Anokhi and Star Buzz Weekly. Her material was also showcased at the largest South Asian Festival in Canada, desiFest and she is continuously sought out for a variety of venues. She is also the first Indo-Canadian artist to pen a national song for Canada, titled "Canada-eh" which she performed live at Toronto's Ribfest on Canada Day 2011 and will be releasing this year. A musician at heart and a humanitarian at large, she is also the ambassador for the Ethan Felix Foundation, which raises funds to provide an education and career placement service for underprivileged Indian students. Currently she is promoting her EP material. Look out for this talented and opinionated artist! In her own words, “Music is art that can create a movement.”
