Born in Blind River, Ontario, Canada, 1970
Norm Jolin had a unique perspective on life and discovered a passion for the arts by the early age of seven. The late '70s and early '80s is when his musical interests started to develop. He started playing guitar by the age of 14 and other than learning the guitar basics initially, he is self taught. Learning to play by listening to other songs and figuring out what was being played and then taking that knowledge to help him become a song writer himself. The interest to play other peoples music dwindled quickly, although it was enjoyable to listen to, it had already been done. To him the more interesting challenge was to create something new.
For over 30 years, Norm has been writing, recording and performing music. He has won numerous different competitions and has had the opportunity to perform live at many different clubs around the Greater Toronto Area including (but not exclusive to) Molson Park, Opera House, El Mocambo, Cabana Room, Moon Room, Gotham, Hot House, Trasheteria and Nag's Head North. He has had the opportunity to share the stage with bands like Our Lady Peace, The Tea Party, I Mother Earth, Ashley MacIsaac, Glueleg, Killjoys, Headstones, Anyhowtown, Rusty, 13 Engines, Crash Vegas as well as many others.
Norm continues to write and record his music, collaborating with musicians and contributing his guitar work to other artists songs. With his own digital recording studio, he tries to push himself constantly working on new songs and experimenting with new and exciting ideas. Great songwriting has become his passion and sharing his music with all that enjoy his work his goal.
