Hailing from the land of brutal winters and deep dish pizza, North by North have developed their own brand of infectious, spastic yet finely-honed rock and roll. They seamlessly toe the line between 3 minute garage pop anthems and your dad’s favorite “prog-rock deep cuts” cassette tape, with plenty of hooks to spare.
As a concept band, their music follows a story written by lead singer Frankie Hill which speaks of love, retribution, betrayal and deception. The group originally broke onto the Cincinnati music scene in 2010 with their debut album “Act 1: Stereo Ground”. The Last Troubadour quickly gained notoriety by combining the silky sounds of the saxophone with the raw energy of a rock band. Continuing into “Act 2: A Thousand Wars” their songs are composed of clever lyrics and catchy hooks that keeps the audience immersed and eager for the release of “Act 3”.
