Biography

Formed in Dublin in the late 1990’s, MrNorth have had quite an odyssey leading up to the release of their debut record Lifesize. The four-piece, made up of two brothers, a first cousin and a next door neighbor, started playing together when they were young teens. After making some noise on the Dublin scene, the boys left Ireland for Vicenza, Italy. The trip was supposed to last for 3 months, just long enough for a producer to put down some tracks for a record. Instead, the band became local favorites and toured all of Italy for the next two years.

Then, the band met up with an American manager who brought them to New York City. With constant performances, MrNorth built up a great fan base in New York and eventually all over the Northeast. Next, the band caught the eye of several record executives. MrNorth scored a record deal and went into the studio with Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads, Live, No Doubt). The result was Lifesize, 12 moving tunes of epic proportions.

    I learned of these guys through an old music teacher. He passed a copy of Lifesize my way and said I'd enjoy it. It was alright... listened through a few times but nothing stuck. I'm suprised to see how few people actually know them considering the amount of time they've been around and the history explained above.

    These guys are absolutely AWESOME in concert! I saw them opening for The Who in Worcester a few years ago, and rediscovering them was amazing.
