True North

True North

 Lawrence, Kansas, USA

True North's originally written/ composed blend of modern country music has fullness, passion, and musicianship few bands match. This Kansas group’s music captures the imagination/ emotion for a vast demographic of fans!


True North plays original modern country/roots rock, simply described by many converts as “real music.” Lyrics that look at life with a backward glance and a forward prayer, music that pays homage to the band’s Midwestern roots, but also gives a nod to the rock artists they grew up listening to.

True North incorporates a traditional rock and roll rhythm section atop mandolin, accordion, and harmonica to forge its own unique sound. A five-piece group, with several multi-instrumentalists onboard allows for impressive musical diversity.

In the the Fall of 2011, True North was the featured, original music artist to perform at the Trails West Music Festival, opening for Nashville New Artist of the Year, The Band Perry. True North warmed up the the main stage for The Band Perry to over 24,000+ music fans!

In the Summer 2010, True North was the only original country artist to play on the Main Stage at the AF Country Stampede, not once, but twice...sharing the stage with Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban & other country favorites.

True North released their fourth CD, entitled “Dimestore Hemingway” in May of 2009. “The name nails the intelligent, everyman spirit of this band,” states the Kansas City Pitch Magazine.

In 2008, True North was nominated one of the region’s best bands by KC Pitch Magazine and topped the “Best Of” poll in the St. Joseph, MO, News-Press. The band also wrote, arranged and recorded the soundtrack for a Farm Bureau PBS Special focusing on rural life in the Midwest.
