alternative rock band


our story

The Nolas are an indie alternative rock band from Montreal Canada. Lifetime ​friends, Joey (Drums/Vox) and Manny (Guitar/Vox), have been writing music ​together since 2013. After years of sharing a rehearsal space, the duo ​recorded a spontaneous jam session which would be the foundation for their ​first EP.

Their music is inspired by all eras of Rock N’ Roll and Pop music, with ​Canadian Roots, along with Italian & Latin influences. The band later grew ​when Fil (Bass/bVox), Mark (Guitar/bVox) and Peter (Synth) joined.

Their debut EP and subsequent single releases “JOHNNY” and “MEXICO”, all ​achieved success through radio airplay nationally (CBCRadio 2&3, ​CHOM97.7, 94.7Hits FM, CMR Radio, CITR109.9, 94.9 The Rock) and ​internationally (SiriusXM LSUG, Planet Rock Radio UK, 106.6 Radio Rock ​Rome, La Grosse Radio Rock Paris).

“They just seem to have an air of nonstop cool about them. SUrf Guitar from Outer Space, SHouty Choruses and a diggin’ in workman like vibe, that make me wanna put The Nolas on a Turntable in my unfinished basement and dance around like my dog is watching.”

“Best now band I’ve heard in a long time. Great musicians, great tunes, fun to watch, you’ve impressed me tonight”

Pierre Soupras,

Milagro record label

"Their sound automatically gave me the feeling of a modern twist on a very 70’s sound. It’s an extremely refreshing listen in an industry where it’s getting harder and harder to be original, or unique. The Nolas not only set themselves apart from the “norm”, but do it beautifully..."

Heather Young, Canadian Beats
