About The Norm
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 were nominated for the 2016 Flagpole Music Awards Artist of the Year. The Norm has shared the stage with artists such as The Revivalists, Moon Taxi, Mayday, Shakey Graves, 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 Will Pugh (Cartel) in Nashville, TN. The band is currently working on their first full length album and fans can expect this to be ready by Fall 2017.

“The Norm likes to party. This EP makes me want to go out, grab a beer with a few friends and have a good time. A must have cd!”
