When step-brothers Bryan Rucker and Ryan Bars became family, they realized they had at least one thing in common – music.
Born and raised in South Florida, the duo combine their urban roots of hip-hop, rock, and pop to formulate a sound they like to refer to as “hip-rock.” Drawing comparisons to Twenty One Pilots, Macklemore, and Fall Out Boy, the brothers of The Norm most certainly defy the musical “norm”.
The dual frontman band currently resides in Athens, GA where they won the 2017 Flagpole Music Awards Artist of the Year. They recently played Bonnaroo Music Festival and have shared the stage with artists such as Eminem, Muse, The Killers, Alt-J, 311, Shakey Graves, The Revivalists, Moon Taxi, Arrested Development, and many more. They have released 2 albums: Everyday People (2014) and Normaltown (2016) and their music has been featured on TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” and “Seven Little Johnstons”. Their Normaltown EP was produced by former Cartel frontman Will Pugh (Cartel) in Nashville, TN. On February 22nd, they released an acoustic EP called "Inside Voices".
