WelcomeThe Noms are a 6-member group from Albuquerque, N.M. We are not your typical “rock” band. We do not follow the trends of the moment. Instead, we experiment to find our own sound. That sound starts with rich vocal harmonies, blending the distinctive voices of our three singers. From there, anything goes: guitar, piano, bass, drums, piano, banjo-whatever the song needs, we use.
Since our start in the summer of 2009, we have been able to bring lots of great fans into our orbit. In one show we try to take our audience through a variety of emotions. We go from stirring deep emotions, and maybe some tears, to bringing the house down with wild, free-spirited dancing. But the true blood of each song is expressing who we are as individuals and fusing our distinct personalities into a single sound.
Our influences range from Dave Matthews Band, Sara Bareilles, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Michelle Branch. But the most important things that drive us are our three loves: we love music; we love each other; and we love our fans.
With exploding popularity, we have performed all over the Southwest. We rocked the famous Viper Room on the Sunset Strip, where we got to meet guitarist and legend Slash. We were also able to jam with Dave Matthews Band Member, Boyd Tinsley when we played at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom. We have been featured on Albuquerque radio stations. In short, we’re living the dream.
We’ve been numerous places, but our favorite shows are always to our hometown fans. There is no separation, no wall between audience and performance. Friend, fan, mom, passerby, bartender: everyone is a part of the music. For us, the best part of what we do is not just about sharing music; it’s about sharing happiness.
