Gabriel D. Bogart, aka Rev. Gabelicious, was born in the Spring of 1975 to parents who would struggle to hide their Hippie leanings. Even as a very small child, he was acutely aware of the importance and breadth of sound and music. Though, as a young boy in Alaska, he learned that the crashing of thrown rocks could be the loudest noise. Very quickly, he would be illuminated by a passion for HipHop that has never waned and this bore much influence on his approach to poetry. The Rev. currently resides in Seattle with his two turntables and a stack of records.
