Brass sensation The Soul Rebels are riding high in 2022 after receiving national attention
following the release of their new album, Poetry In Motion. The eight-member collective
appeared on Sony Music artist G-Eazy featuring Lil Wayne’s new single ‘When You’re
Gone”, Def Jam artist Dave East and Nas’ “Godfather 4” single, Big Freedia and Icona
Pop’s “Pipe That”, and reached fans with original singles “Greatness” featured as ESPN's

The Soul Rebels have impressed viewers with two recent appearances on The Late Show

GZA, headlined the global TED Conference, and appeared on the official soundtrack for
Universal Pictures' hit comedy Girls Trip.
On the heels of their new supergroup with The Wu Tang Clan, The Soul Rebels continue
to expand their international reach touring four continents including Europe, Australia,
China, South Korea and Japan. Their explosive stage presence has led to live
collaborations with the likes of DMX, Robin Thicke, Macy Gray, Portugal. The Man,
Robert Glasper, Pretty Lights, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Matisyahu.
The Soul Rebels started with an idea - to expand upon the pop music they loved on the
radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and
blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band
context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the
power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. The Soul Rebels
continue to chart new territory as they feature in major films, tour globally, and combine
topnotch musicianship with songs that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.
