Biography

There are at least four artists with this name:

1) Northstar was an American alternative punk rock band formed in 1997 in Huntsville, Alabama.

Since the beginning they have had around 5 guitarists and 3 different bassists, have been a 3 piece, 5 piece, and a 4 piece, and have had two different singers. Being from Alabama, where there is no rock scene, they decided to start touring around the country in 2000. They booked their first tour, bought a van, and set out on the road. Since then, they have been on 5 tours.

After two years of polishing their do-it-yourself skills of booking, promoting, and producing everything that is Northstar, the band ended up signing a deal in June of 2002 with Triple Crown Records in New York.

Northstar broke up in April 2005. Nicolas Torres and Tyler Odom created Cassino. The demos for Cassino were recorded with Matt Squire and used drummer Will Noon, of Straylight Run fame.

2) Northstar is a hip hop group consisting of Christ Bearer and Meko The Pharoah. Wu-Tang Clan affiliate.

Used to record with fellow Californian group Black Knights as Black Knights Of The North Star, and indeed the two groups were initially signed as such to Wu-Tang Records. The groups have since split into two separate units, and Northstar released their debut album in 2003, titled Bobby Digital Presents Northstar, which also featured a reunion with Black Knights on the closing song “Black Knights Of The North Star”. Their second album West Coast Killa Beez was released in 2005.

3) Northstar is a unique combination of rappers, producers and profesionally trained jazz musicians hailing from Toronto.

    Northstar is a good bandname so Im not suprised some white pop dudes performs under that name also. But RZA discovered & signed the west coast killa beez duo Northstar (then as a part of collab group Black Knights of the North Star) in '97. They appeared on a commercial LP in '98 (Wu-Tang Killa Bees: The Swarm), while the "band" northstar got their first contract in '02. So imho Christ Bearer & Meko the Pharaoh takes precedence last.fm-wise. The financial part aint all that matters but in this case Wu-Fam Northstar should be Northstar & the others Northstar #2, NOrthstar Huntsville or North Star or something. Unless we all cool w/ the scrobbling confusion.

    never listened to these guys, but after seeing them in Hot Rod Circuit's similar artists, I had to check them out. Good decision.
