About The Northern Folk

Hailing from Albury NSW, The Northern Folk are a collective of eleven musical ambitionists spreading their unique brand of folk/pop/stomp/rock into the roots of small towns and big cities alike. With an age averaging 22, this band of hopefuls released their self-titled EP in October 2015 with a sold out festival-style launch on the banks of the River Murray, and have since set about making a name for themselves playing at festivals, pubs and snowfields around North East Victoria, Melbourne and Canberra.

Soaring saxes, roaring brass, and bashful bass frame the Northern Folk’s massive vocals, with eight part harmonies in tow. The Folk write in a range of moods, from atmospheric ballads to big band boot stompers, harkening to the style of The Cat Empire, Saskwatch and Of Monsters and Men. Their music proves flexible to the occasion, and with the help of some addictive percussion and a jug of beer, the big music becomes a bigger live show.

In 2015 and 2016 The Northern Folk have dived into the sea of Victorian regional music festivals, including Swagger (Wandiligong), Happy Wanderer (Benalla), Bendigo Blues and Roots, Healesville Music Festival, Panacea (Tatong), Cool Summer (Mt Hotham), Yack Folk (Yackandandah), Mt Beauty Festival, Pfeiffer Pfest (Rutherglen), and Uranquinty Folk Festival, plus Illawarra Folk Festival coming in January. Melbourne has also shared their time with the Folk, with shows at The Gasometer, Wesley Anne and The Evelyn, Grace Darling and further abroad at Canberra’s Transit Bar. Back at home, the band owes its success to the vibrant and receptive audience of Albury, with notable performances at such venues as the Entertainment Centre, Beer Deluxe and the SS&A Club. Beyond the music, the Northern Folk have found appreciation in meeting many talented and unique souls through these opportunities.

The band’s latest LP, “Stumble On Home”, released October 2016, was recorded with acclaimed producer Adam Rhodes at Sing Sing Studios, Melbourne. Adam has previously worked with such artists as The Cat Empire, Paul Kelly and Angus Stone. “Stumble On Home” is available via iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and more.
