As a singer-songwriter, self-taught guitarist and visual artist, Soule refuses to be pigeonholed. Her sound fuses the realms of modern indie, shoegaze and slowcore with angst-fueled vocal deliveries inspired by ‘90s alternative rock and feminist punk. Exuding a fiery aura through her distinctive raspberry-red top-bun hairstyle, Soule’s visual aesthetic juxtaposes with the inner world of raw poetic metaphors in her lyrical writing. Whether it be an unspoken letter or bursting through a fence or cage, Soule intends to break boundaries, in the world of both music and social justice. Her upcoming debut EP “wall splattered with ink” embodies current social themes pertaining to systems of oppression.

Soule, known personally as Jennie, grew up in Brooklyn, New York City before relocating to Chicago in late 2019. She identifies as a queer Asian-American artist with an invisible disability. At age 15, she discovered her passion for music as a channel of self-expression and inspiring change and began writing lyrics in her bedroom and on subway trains. Soule dabbled in various forms of art — from poetry to dance to videography — but ultimately had a vision and ambition as a musical artist.

Influenced by both 90s sounds like Deftones, Hole, and The Smashing Pumpkins and zeitgeist-leading modern acts such as Teen Suicide, Cherry Glazerr, and girl in red, Soule taught herself and ultimately found her sound on the guitar, an integral instrument in her creative process. Through her artistic platform, Soule endeavors to evoke relatable messages and empower marginalized voices like her’s in the queer, BIPOC, and disability communities.
