Welcome to Northern Noise.

I am a student from Manchester studying at Newcastle University, with a love for live music, music events, finding new artists, songs, albums, and the places that bring all these things together. Moving to a new city I often found it difficult to get to know the local music scene. Here at the Northern Noise I hope to make all this a little bit easier. Here you will find news, updates, reviews and much more all focused on events, upcoming artists, new releases from your favourite local bands and everything else the thriving North East music scene has to offer.


This site will post a range of reviews. Some reviews will be of live performances from the heart of the North East either from local bands or larger ones visiting our wonderful corner of the country. You will also find reviews of new releases, from songs to EPs, all produced from the talent of the North East.
