Guitarist Jules, who also plays with well known John O’leary band, has a well established reputation as a classy soloist who continually delivers fresh energetic grooves painted on a broad rhythmic background.
Hayden Doyle on drums and Ian Mauricio on bass complete the new four piece Northsyde.

Here’s what the press have said about them:
