Rellik (Bill LeBlanc)

Rellik (Bill LeBlanc) is an award winning, multi-award nominated urban artist from Edmonton, Alberta.

Rellik got into Hip Hop at an early age and gradually developed over the years. He has proudly shared the stage with childhood heroes such as Run DMC, Casual, as well as Canadian icons, Buffy Sainte-Marie and the Guess Who. He brings with him a full band and plays guitar and a variety of other instruments, which he has done since childhood and is now implementing them in his live show and recordings, taking audiences by storm. He is a gifted wordsmith known for his quick witted and gritty punch lines.

Rellik is no stranger to adversity and develops his talent all the while raising his children as a single father and working full time. From transcribing his emotions of gaining custody of his children, the sudden loss of his mother, to fiercely fully describing his frustrations in the music industry, or any political subject, his point always comes across crystal clear.

Some of the many highlights of his career include:

• 2014 Featured on CBC’s “Arctic Air”
• Nominated at the 2015 Western Canadian Music Awards
• Aboriginal recording of the year
• Nominated at the 2015 Indigenous Music Awards
• License on multiple episodes of “Blackstone” new season 5

As a seasoned performer with hundreds of performances, workshops, awards and award nominations, there is much to look forward to in the coming days from Rellik.
