What is ReBels Music?
ReBels Music is about allowing young people to find their creative voices through music - and creating opportunities for cross pollination across creative mediums.
We want to foster the new sound that could emerge from Plymouth, and give young people and emerging artist a strong platform to succeed in generating a sustainable career in music.
ReBels Music is part of our wider talent development work supporting the underground voices and subcultures in Plymouth - giving them platforms to be heard. ReBels Music is funded by Youth Music will support the growth of musical talent in the city. Not only those who want to perform, but those who want to record, produce, market and design tours that promote their work.
Barbican Theatre believes you ‘can't be what you can't see’, and this programme aims to break down barriers to expose young people to all the vital roles that make up the music industry, and work with industry leading professionals. We want to break the isolation, and give young artists routes to finding their own creative voices - whether as lyricists, composers, producers, mixers, engineers or musicians.
In 2022 and 2023, in addition to their weekly sessions, our ReBels Musicians have performed at Plymouth Lido, Boston Tea Party, National Marine Aquarium, Barbican Theatre and The B-Bar. They've also spent the day in the recording studios at THÊ DEPØ and had a bespoke session run by award winning folk legend Seth Lakeman.
