Old You is an American rock band from Charleston, South Carolina.
In 2010, Old You began performing in Charleston as a fledgling band with only a few original songs. By 2011, the band was playing six nights a week, honing their skill as musicians and building an extensive repertoire of original songs. They started incorporating elements of jazz, funk, and psychedelic rock into their music. Live shows became highly improvised and unpredictable with soaring guitar solos and extended instrumental breaks that traversed genres. This combined with the soulful and unique vocals of front-woman Young-Mi Feldsott created a sound that mesmerized crowds.
In 2012, Old You set up a home studio where they recorded So Steady, a five-song EP with some of the band’s earliest original music. The record was met with positive reception and the band toured regionally with some success over the next year. During this time, Old You was fortunate enough to open for The Wailers, 3OH!3, Robert Randolph, Perpetual Groove, and Dopapod. They were recognized by Charleston City Paper as Charleston’s “Up-and-Coming Act of the Year” and nominated in the “Best Vocalist” and “Best Rock Band” category.
In November of 2012, Old You began work on Whale Noises, their first full-length album. Tracked and mixed at Truphonic Studios in Charleston, SC, the album is scheduled for release in December of 2013. Leading up to the release of Whale Noises, the band has continued to tour nationally and work on new material.
