OLD SOUL REBEL (Vancouver, BC)
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 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. The band was recognized as one of the 11 Best New Bands of 2016 by CBC Radio Music. Just recently, having made it to the final two in CTV's reality music competition series, The Launch, Old Soul Rebel is excited to take their act on the road across Canada.
Victoria, BC-based singer-songwriter Adrian Chalifour has been performing heart-driven original music for more than 15 years, most notably as the founder and charismatic frontman of Towers and Trees, a solo home-recording project that grew into one of BC’s most notable indie bands. With T&T his songs have charted on Canadian radio and he has toured the country extensively, performing at festivals like Canadian Music Week, Indie Week, Breakout West and many more.
In March 2019 Adrian made his national TV debut appearing on popular Canadian TV show THE LAUNCH, where he garnered rave reviews from living legend Nile Rodgers and pop sensation Bebe Rexha. The appearance marked a new chapter in his career beyond the T&T moniker and fulfilled a promise he made two years ago when he became a father: to do everything possible to show his daughter that gifts are worth honouring and dreams are worth pursuing.
