brother and sister led folk-soul-rock

The Northerners consist of brother and sister Justin and Ally Khoury who are originally from NJ but started their music career in Richmond, Va in 2012.. The band prides themselves with taking influence from 60's and 70's classic rock sounds and imagery. The band's sound has been described as part nostalgia, part new-indie-rock.

Since 2012 The Northerners have opened for Lord Huron, sealed a residency at The Camel in Richmond, and Disney director Adam Blake has created a choreographed ice show around the bands original music. The newest release from the band is a modern rock track called "Boosie Pop". One of 3 singles to be released in the next few months.

The coolest people our generation has to offer know that this is the kind of music that actually touches their heart
— Dingus Music
The Northerners stand on the upper echelon of Richmond Va’s scene with an outstanding live set full of the sounds of yesterdays soul heroes with today’s indie folk movement
— Main St Annex
It sounds like The Northerners are truly coming into their own, they’re harnessing their own sound. The rise of The Northerners has been swift, and they are challenged by no other band because their sound is unique to this city.
