With each member of Northsyde having unique and diverse influences, their style is eclectic, but identifiable. A heady mix of soulful Blues, shaking Funk, and Zep-style riffing, it has been best described as what you'd get from "Stanley Clarke strapped to the front of a Intercity 125 with Janis Joplin driving." - while not fitting into an easily defined pigeon-hole, sampling their music live is usually the best introduction. With little interest in recreating any specific musical era or idiom, they prefer to blend together their own individual contributions to form a distinct and energetic combination.
Northsyde have been well represented at the British Blues Awards in recent years, being nominated as finalists in 2014 for Best Female Vocals, Best Blues Band, Best Guitarist, Best Bass Player, Best Drummer and Best Blues Album. They repeated this feat in both 2015 and 2016 with nominations as finalists for Best Female Vocals, Best Blues Band, Best Guitarist, Best Bass Player and Best Drummer!

"Step aside Beth Hart and Dana Fuchs, Lorna is here... Powerful vocals need a powerful band and they provide some great guitar riffs and suitably supercharged backing to what proves a very memorable, striking, electric performance..." - Slap Magazine
"Gigging across Britain, Holland and Italy has seen Northsyde develop into a tight-knit unit, and display excellent musicianship individually: Jules is the best lead guitarist you've never head of. Meanwhile, Lorna's voice was a match for any blues rock vocalist, male or female, while Ian Mauricio's fluid bass and Hayden Doyle's powerful drumming perfectly underpinned the whole." - Classic Rock - The Blues Magazine
"Northsyde is an accomplished band combining Jules silky guitar licks, Lorna's exceptional voice and a rhythm section of Hayden Doyle (Drums) and Ian Mauricio (Bass), to rank with the best in the business." - Blues Matters Magazine
