North of America was a rock band from Nova Scotia that has recorded with Matlock Records in Canada and the American label Level Plane Records. Members of Halifax’s State Champs and Truro’s The Motes formed North of America in 1997.

The original lineup of the band consisted of Michael Catano, Mark Mullane, J. LaPointe, and Mark Colavecchia. LaPointe left the band after the recording of This is Dance Floor Numerology in 2001. LaPointe was replaced by Jim MacAlpine as of the 2003 Level Plane release, Brothers, Sisters.
