The Official S. Joel Norman Website

Blog

Welcome to the new site. Glad you could stop in. I’d like to let you in on a few great things that are happening this year.

1) There will be new music.

Yes, that’s right, the rock and roll will continue. Some of it will sound pretty familiar, some of it will be unlike anything you’ve ever heard from us before. Keep a sharp eye. I will always post teasers and trailers here as well as on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. @sjoelnorman

2) There will be a new show.

The stage show is going to get many improvements in 2016. A few new folks, a few new tunes, a brand new experience. We also will start taking it on the road, so no matter where you are in the wide world you might be close to a future SJN show. Come see the new spectacle. I will always post show announcements here as well as on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. @sjoelnorman

3) There will be new swag.

All kinds of new merch will be available for your consumption, including albums, EPs, vinyls, rare tee shirts, limited edition posters, and original artwork. There will also be free swag. I will always post them both here as well as on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. @sjoelnorman

4) There will be a place for you.

I want you to know that everyone is welcome to rock with our crew of miscreants. Race, creed, color, or shape — all are welcome. You are free to love, free to dance, free to find freedom in the musical experience. If you hate, I would hope that you could come to a show and find love, and then stop hating. And if you do find love, you should post it both here as well as on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. @sjoelnorman

If you ever want to chat, shoot me an email. joel@sjoelnorman.com

I’d like to thank Dan Vos for the nifty site design and Kevin Bruinsma for the kine art. Here’s to a great 2016.

Joel

  • I love Barcelona. I'm there somewhat frequently to play music and last time I wanted to capture (virtually) one corner of the city on an average Wednesday. I've got another on my YouTube channel @sjoelnorman

  • This is me, looking for you, hoping you'll be at the Beat Kitchen tonight. 9pm. New stuff, favorites, and a special guest appearance by Huey Lewis and The News.* *I haven't directly spoken with Hugh yet, but I'm pretty confident.
