Norwall is an American artist/producer trio based out of Austin, TX made up of David Carson, Jordan Carson, and Jayson Watson.
The group started in 2017 making beats for other artists, and began making original music in 2018. Mainstream dance pop is Norwall’s genre of choice, with elements of other genres put together, making for exciting music that has mass appeal and that can be enjoyed by everyone.
The three members of the group grew up in Michigan and moved to Texas in early 2017 with the profits from their online video game retailer that they created in early 2016. After about a year and a half of operating the company, the trio decided to move onto greener pastures and started to pursue their true passion of making music.
