Despite leaving college with a degree and going for several interviews, nobody was willing to take on singer Taylor-Grace Mitchell due to her disabilities. It wasn’t until guitarist Zander Brown approached her to do lighthearted recording sessions as a confidence booster that it was discovered that Taylor had a hidden talent ... an incredible singing voice. As well as expanding her vocal range, the band has also grown into 4 members with the talented Lara Hindhaugh on bass and the loud, passionate Dougie Scott on drums. And so Not Now Norman was born. The bands lyrics reflect Taylors determination to succeed regardless, and are delivered in a manner true to their message.
Known for their sassy vocals, blunt delivery as well as their confrontational and in-your-face lyrics with a personal message, Not Now Norman perform as a punchy Intergenerational Hard Rock/Alternative Rock Band. With their debut EP 'The End of the Day' and their latest single 'Shut Your Mouth' the band have grown in popularity across the North East and beyond. Since their debut single in 2019, they have supported bands such as LazyRave, Follow Deep and Ashes of Iron, they have been nominated for awards and have been played several times on BBC Introducing In The North East.
In the past 2 years since they formed, Not Now Norman show no signs of slowing down. At the beginning of the pandemic Not Now Norman began livestreaming their music on their Facebook page and continue to do so. Reaching over 370 livestreams, they have quickly developed a loyal fanbase and have taken part in online festivals such as 'Rock the Lockdown' and 'Live Jam at Lockdown' where they got the largest reach views during the event. They have also been announced as performing acts for festivals such as 'Crossing the Tyne' and Lindisfarne Festival for 2021.
