Εuangelion | Ευαγγέλιοn – Greek for “message” or “the messenger” – is a crossover Hip Hop/Reggae artist from British Columbia, Canada. Describing his life as “‘kaleidoscopic’ at best and ‘interestingly colourful’ at worst”, his music is aimed at encouraging audiences to question everything around them, from people to philosophies to institutions. This is in keeping with Euangelion’s commitment to life, as both holder of a degree in religion and his career in the nursing industry, with the lead track from his album, Ode to Health Care Workers, being his own tribute to those who dedicate their lives to others.
“I would like to share glimpses of my past, where I’m at in life at this time and hopeful dreams of the future”
Euangelion’s music is direct, punchy and energetic, with a charismatic flow which recalls some of the greats of the Hip Hop and Reggae genre, including Nas, Eminem, Shabba Ranks or Raekwon. Euangelion is known for his uncommon blend of Hip-Hop and Reggae – which allow him to tantalise his audience with unique textures, engaging lyrics and infectious lines. This skilled artist has a distinctive lyrical flow with a stunning feel, drifting on the groove perfectly.
Euangelion original hails from Montego Bay, Jamaica, where in his own words he,
“Skipped school from time to time, smoking bongs and chanting psalms, wanting to change the world and make it a better place. This set me on the course I’m now on”.
The graduate of the Northern Caribbean University with a bachelor’s degree in Religion decided to return to his roots in music after working as a member of the clergy for some years, where he officiated at funerals and baptisms. He is now dedicated to creating a music that is richly unique, ethical and cerebral.
Euangelion who is currently working as a nurse in Northern Health Authority, Canada, is committed to taking Hip Hop to a more cerebral level, where the listeners are encouraged to formulate their own views on the world around them, rather than being fed the answers.
