Brevner is a name that carries weight on the Canadian West Coast. Growing up in Vancouver of Japanese and Trinidadian descent Brevner has always stood out amongst his peers for his unique look, artistic savviness and brash, honest and unwavering talent.
Brevner co-founded bsharp collective where his skills in rapping, song-writing, producing and directing elevated his dexterity for his craft leading him to both Juno and MuchMusic Award nominations in 2012. In 2014 was provided the opportunity to direct and feature in Chinx and French Montana’s “Feelings”. Most Recently, Brevner co-directed Royce da 5’9’s Cocaine Video, which has garnered 2.3 million views in its first month.
Brevner harnessed his folk-like, heart-on- your-sleeve, writing style to share personal stories of his rough past and create a hip- hop project unlike anything he created before: the Brevner EP. With features from international artists like Riff Raff, Project Pat and King Louie the release of this project gained Brevner global traction in 2016.
Brevner combines the heart of Bushido Project with the classic appeal of Eclectricy and the contemporary style of Brevner EP on his highly anticipated forthcoming release IKIGAI, set to be released on July 19th, 2019.
“IKIGAI” (a Japanese word whose meaning translates roughly to “a reason for being, encompassing joy, a sense of purpose and meaning and a feeling of well-being.”) The new release will be created with the intention of ultimately merging two of Brevner’s passions – audio and video production into one product, leaving you with a tangible look into the creation process as a whole.
