Northsyde [Funk Rock, 4 piece]
Founded in 2005, the four piece Northsyde began life as Funkydory. Their debut album "Still" was released in 2006 to fine reviews, and the band toured consistently for the next several years in support of it, and growing a dedicated fanbase. With a grooving combination of Rock, Funk and a serious nod to the Blues - their follow up album "Mercy's Medicine" was released independently in 2009, again to strong acclaim. This was followed by "Storyteller's Daughter" in 2014 (nominated for "Best British Blues Album" in the same year).The band is fronted by vocalist Lorna Fothergill, who is also the main lyricist and songwriter. With a dynamic and powerful vocal style, she has been described as "Robert Plant meets Aretha, with a hint of Janis". Guitarist Jules Fothergill is well respected amongst his peers for developing an unorthodox mix of melodic and rhythmical improvisation, whether playing lead or slide guitar in a wide variety of musical settings. Bassist Ian Mauricio has an unusual style, being left handed, and stringing the bass upside-down, again contributing a musicality to the group which defies placement in any particular niche. Completing the line-up is drummer Hayden Doyle, whose confident grooves combine to give the band a sound quite unlike any of their contemporaries on the modern Blues and Rock circuit. The quartet have remained together for over 10 years and their on-stage chemistry continues to be a defining attribute.
