Accessing their roots - Old. Soul. Rebel
Don't miss Old.Soul.Rebel along with The Long War, Jasper Sloan Yip, and Year of the Wolf July 28th, for our inaugural Pacific Sound Presents showcase event.
Old Soul Rebel’s music is a blend of Soul and Rock 'n' Roll. Pulling from their ancestry, indigenous and Black American Scotian. Accessing their roots through song and story telling- telling their story. Both Chelsea D.E Johnson and Lola Whyte use music as a tool of transforming what was once turmoil into power! Old Soul Rebel reflects all of this and more.
