Old Soul RebelBold. Upbeat. Immense and Soulful is the cutting edge sound which is Old Soul Rebel. A powerhouse duo, coloured by brass and driven by drums, puts a brand new shine on soul and rock n roll.
Inspired by their First Nations and African American upbringings, core members Chelsea D.E Johnson and Lola Whyte write music that rebels against what is old and outdated.
Check them out as features on various television and radio spots such as CTV’s The Launch, APTN and Onstage TV Live. Their first single “Don’t You Worry About Me” is available on all platforms now.

The veteran songstress’ new tracks frame the season in a new way, shirking the traditional style much in the way rock n roll originally came in and rebranded the idea of Christmas by the likes of Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley. December Falls encapsulates the whole period of transition that comes with the new year, not just the day itself. God knows we’re all ready for a transition!” J. IresonLinks; www.norinebraun

Old Soul Rebel
Old Soul Rebel
Old Soul Rebel is the musical musings of Chelsea D.E. Johnson and Lola Whyte. They offer a raw blend of original soul music and bad ass rock 'n roll and were featured on the second season of CTV's "The Launch." 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. The band was recognized as one of the 11 Best New Bands of 2016 by CBC Radio Music. "Chelsea Johnson is truly one of the most talented singers Vancouver has ever been blessed with." - vanmusic.ca
