About Old Soul Rebel

B.C. based powerhouse duo Old Soul Rebel is comprised of core members Chelsea Johnson (vocals/electric guitar) and Lola Whyte (vocals/electric banjo) who put a brand new shine on soul and rock-n-roll. With a repertoire inspired by their respective First Nations and African American upbringings, Old Soul Rebel’s music vividly recites the honest experiences of human life. Formed in late 2015 by a like-minded need to sing stories of their past, Old Soul Rebel has graced many stages and festivals across Canada. Despite only having seven demos under their belt, the band was recognized as one of the 11 Best New Bands of 2016 by CBC Radio Music.
