What started as a social media TikTok group to inspire Asian American youth, is now transforming into the hottest new boy band. North Star Boys, or NSB, is a seven member group consisting of Oliver Moy, Sebastian Moy, Justin Phan, Ryan Nguyen, Kane Bray, Darren Liang, and Regie Macalino. Debuting on August 28th, 2021, North Star Boys was created by brothers Oliver and Sebastian Moy who brought together some of their best friends to take a leap of faith and pursue their dreams in their emerging social media careers. Now the boys are gearing up to once again take a chance on themselves with the recent drop of their newest song ‘Sunshine‘ following their debut single ‘You Are My Star‘. Since its release, the music video has already surpassed 740,000 views on YouTube and 275,000 listens on Spotify. Creating content is easier said than done, but with over 5.3 million followers on TikTok alone clearly these boys are doing something right. Now these international sensations are in the process of completing a tour having just performed in The Philippines, Florida, and currently performing in Texas.
When we spoke to the boys about their careers, we asked them if music was always the end goal when they started their rise to fame. Oliver responded by saying, “We came together to create content and that was something we were all already dabbling into. Music is just something that we all discovered that we all have a passion for.” Through this shared passion an idea was sparked to try their own hand at making music that feels authentic to themselves and communicates their love for their fans, their ‘Stars’. Oliver added that, “Through North Star Boys, we’re noticing that there’s a lot of opportunities for us to be able to turn that spark of passion into a burning flame.” Now these boys are diving in head first into the music world and we can’t wait to see how they do.
