Northern Ladies was formed in the summer of 2014 with Marie (guitar), Cecilia (drums) and Eden (former vocals). They had a vision to create a 70/80's influenced hardrock band.
Inspired by Saxon's song ”Northern Lady” they decided for the bandname 'Northern Ladies'.
During the summer the Ladies jammed casually for a while until Ida (bass) joined in October. The lineup was almost complete, but they were still one guitarist short. So occasionally their friend Jimmy participated in the rehearsals to make the lineup complete while they were looking for the final member.
The rehersals became more serious and eventually the band got an offer to join a mini-tour (Amptour 2015) where Jimmy joined them for the shows.
The Amptour was a success for the Ladies and during the tour they were signed a record/management deal with Attitude Recordings (Regina Vallanger). Since Jimmy worked so well with the Ladies they offered him to permanently fill the second guitarist spot. He joined the band, and the lineup was complete.
During the summer of 2015 the Ep ”Down on your knees” was recorded and three months later it was digitally released. Shortly after the release Eden sadly weren’t able to continue in the band.
In their search for a new vocalist Ida remembered Emelye's incredible performance from a school-concert where Cecilia and Marie also participated in. The Ladies contacted Emelye and offered her the vacant part as the singer in the band.
With an upcoming show only two nights away Emelye accepted and started rehearsing the Ladies material preparatory to her first gig, located in Stockholm (Pub Anchor). Her performance at the gig was a great success and the fans was stunned by her amazing voice!
Jimmy left the band in the beginning of 2017. With short notice Leandro filled Jimmy’s spot in the band and followed the ladeis on their first European tour. After the tour they decided to make Leandro a permanent member.
