Norm Stockton

Bassist/solo artist/clinician Norm Stockton travels extensively throughout North America, Europe and Japan. He has been profiled in Bass Player magazine (12/95 & 2/10) and is recognized by many as one of the premier bassists today. From 2006-2012, he was the touring and recording bassist with chart-topping worship artist (and former Steve Perry guitarist) Lincoln Brewster. He currently performs with Grammy-winning singer Bobby Kimball (original lead vocalist with TOTO).

As a solo artist, he has released two instrumental projects that have garnered widespread acclaim from around the globe. His recently-released 2nd solo project, Tea In The Typhoon, features stellar guest artists John Patitucci, Gregg Bissonette, Lincoln Brewster, Michael Manring, Etienne Mbappe and more, and further affirms Norm's reputation as a world-class bassist and composer.
