Rebelinx (aka Linx) is a talented artist who grew up in and around metro Toronto area. In his teens he created a band ‘Genius of Funk’ with LaSalle Stephens (long time producer & husband of RnB artist ‘Carol Cox’).

He won musician of the year at his junior high school and after went on the road busking and getting a scholarship to study film in Vancouver.  While studying there, he started running a successful Art Gallery (‘Soul Art Gallery’) and created an after-hours Jazz joint.

He moved to Montreal, and started a Black artist alliance ‘Rebel Art Society’. He enrolled in Concordia Univ. for film and music. During an exchange program in Paris/France he created a 10 piece acid-jazz ensemble while making his first 35mm feature film but fell ill and unable to complete his projects & studies.

Determined Linx moved back to Vancouver hooking up with a young artist Chris Guy (aka Clev) working out of Hipposonic studio along side artists Swollen Members/Nelly Furtado/ The Rascal, etc. They teamed up to do the soundtrack of the Linx film “Fade to Black: BloodChild” – that also became the new name of his production company (Fade to Black Entertainment Alliance).

Clev and Linx teamed up again and recorded their second album ‘Dope New Soul Cats’, while Linx was living in Madrid/Spain.

Linx suffered meningitis in Madrid paralyzing the muscles in his face and landing him in a coma, during which he almost died.

A year later he received a kidney transplant. It took 18 years for ‘the gift of life’ and while recovering hooked up with producer Joey Turco and made a experimental solo album ‘Fistula’ and dedicated it to Vancouver St. Paul’s hospital nurses, doctors and staff.

Now fully back, Linx has produced his first international jazz album entitled ‘Destiny’. He recently launched the album in Vancouver, New York and now Bulgaria. A uniquely electric jazz-fusion meets world beat and dance album.

More recently he released in 2016/17 his first live album ‘Rebelinx Live in Bulgaria’ and is now working on a new album “The Rebirth’ in the Northern city of Prince George”.
