Bio

Old Soul’s music is in the folk genre, but its actual classification is a challenge to explain, said Michael O’Hehir, the long-legged lead singer, adding the band dabbles in a variety of sounds, such as reggae and rock.

“(It’s) nice to not pigeonhole ourselves into one little corner of the music world,” said self-taught accordion player Jonathan Mathieu.

Old Soul’s music is in the folk genre, but its actual classification is a challenge to explain, said Michael O’Hehir, the long-legged lead singer, adding the band dabbles in a variety of sounds, such as reggae and rock.

“(It’s) nice to not pigeonhole ourselves into one little corner of the music world,” said self-taught accordion player Jonathan Mathieu.

O’Hehir writes songs and presents his work to the band, who then contribute input, making the original pieces a collaborative effort. The songs are more about big-picture perceptions, O’Hehir said, rather than heartbreak. Old Soul has about 25 songs in its repertoire; there are nine songs on Old Soul’s self-titled LP from 2011 and its second record, with its “wider range of influences,” is anticipated this winter.
