Rebel Rebel Staff

Rebel Rebel Music Magazine was founded by Gessica Puglielli, counting in the names of several music enthusiasts, journalists and photographers.

The magazine was founded in October 2013 and, despite being quite young, Gessica and her collaborators have already interviewed and/or reviewed several interesting artists mainly from the indie scene of rock, pop, jazz and soul. In the first 5 months from its online launch, Rebel Rebel Magazine scored over 30,000 visits and 20,000 unique visitors, with 15,000 Twitter followers and 5,000 Facebook likes.

The main categories include interviews, live reviews, music reviews, live photography and album/show previews.

Rebel Rebel is the result of years of passion for music and the experience Gessica gained during her years as collaborator of Michael Jackson’s staff MJJ Productions.

Why the name? We think somehow music is an act of rebellion and a declaration of freedom, that’s why we define ourselves as “unconventional”: we don’t care whether an artist is popular or not, as long as it’s good music. We’re not into celebrities, we’re into artists… and what better than the title of a song by one of the greatest artists ever?
