The Norm is a Canadian alternative-rock band based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, consisting of members Aidan Langer (guitar, vocals) Gabe Sorensen (guitar, piano) Luke Kelly (bass guitar, backing vocals) Matthew Kennedy (guitar, piano) and Nicolas Riou (drums). The Norm have been active since late 2015, performing at multiple locations across St. John’s and most famously opening for Matt Mays and Sam Roberts at the 2017 George Street Festival. The Norm is becoming a recognizable name within the St. John’s music scene, with their goal being to become well known musicians across all of Canada. Boasting multiple albums worth of unrecorded original written material, The Norm have gained momentum and recognition from members of local bands such as Hear/Say and Ouroboros, and are steadily gaining a fanbase from all sorts of music lovers. The Norm has plans to record a full length studio album later in 2017, and they plan to release it independently.
