Four close friends embraced their love of music and singing from their early high school campus days to forming the reggae group we know today as Rebel SoulJahz. Their signature soulful harmonies, heavily inspired by reggae and r&b, separate them from typical reggae artists and combine their unique styles to create a harmonious foursome.

Nirvana a.k.a Vana Liya grew up outside of New York City. Being of Caribbean descent, Vana was surrounded by soca, calypso, dancehall and reggae music. Vana's mom gave her a ukulele for Christmas and a few years later she began covering songs by some of her favorite artists. The combination of the ukulele and her soft voice put a unique twist on some reggae-rock staples. Artists like 311, Rebelution, Stick Figure and SOJA shared Vana’s covers across social media platforms, which was the beginning of Vana finding her audience. After gaining traction, in early 2018 Vana Liya signed with Pepper's LAW Records becoming the first female and first solo artist. Subsequently she released her debut single "Show Me". Later that year, Vana visited Stick Figure's Great Stone Studios in Oakland, CA. She recorded "Go For It" with Johnny Cosmic of Stick Figure. Cosmic signed on to produce her debut album, which is scheduled for a 2020 release. She says “Working with Cosmic has helped me find my sound - there’s a new feel behind this album.” Vana has shared the stage with bands like SOJA, Pepper, The Expendables & The Movement.
Love conquers all. If everyone just showed a little more love every day, the world would be a better place. Sometimes love doesn't work as fast as we like, and we need a little help. So God gave me music to help remind people of the love we share that is so abundant. The love that we sometimes lose, the love we sometimes forget, the love we sometimes mistreat, and most of all, the love we to have for ourselves. If you don't love yourself then how the fuck do you think you can love someone else.
Blessngs and love,
