Not Your Style

Not Your Style

 Sacramento, California, USA

"Not Your Style play with heart and skill" We are defined by our fun-loving attitude, and bring that to our music and live show in a big way. We're making a name for ourselves in Northern California and are looking forward to making 2011 our year.


Not Your Style began in early 2009. Vocalist Laith Kayyali and bassist Kylan Kegel, having previously played together in Sacramento-area bands, decided to venture out in search of something more.
After searching Craigslist for others sharing the drive and hunger to create energetic pop-rock music, they came across guitarist Chris Karriker. Next, they came upon young drummer Marc Moser, and when Marc brought in guitarist Dave Harris, NYS was complete.

Not Your Style hit the ground running.
After playing together for just six weeks, NYS wrote and recorded their debut EP "…in the Conservatory with the Wrench" with famed Sacramento producer/engineer Jack Trammell. NYS quickly made a name for themselves with their creative and energetic live shows.
This caught the attention of local radio stations, and within 4 months of being a band, NYS found themselves winners of a huge contest to open for the likes of Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Saliva, and Trapt. Despite the obvious stylistic differences between these hard rock heavyweights and NYS, the boys rocked the stage and wowed the huge crowd. 2009 was an amazing year for NYS.

2010 has turned into an even better year for Not Your Style. Having just released their second EP "It’s Treason Then" armed with huge goals and an amazing fan base, NYS is determined to spread their live shows and energetic Pop-Rock music beyond the Sacramento area.
Do yourself a favor, and check out NYS’ energetic shows and listen to the music that they hope will one day rule the world.
