James Keith Norman

Born and raised in Toronto, I've lived my life surrounded and absorbed by music.

My stepfather was a successful pianist, well-known around jazz clubs, plus a frequent player in recording studios. My mother was a music booking agent, music-business consultant, author, and columnist. No wonder that when we were talking around the dinner table, it was usually about music. Even if dinner was at 1 a.m. after one of my stepfather's gigs.

Music has been in my blood a very long time: a relative on my paternal grandmother's side and who was born in 1865 in Aberdeen played contrabassoon for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

As for playing my own music, I first picked up a guitar when I was nine and started writing songs and performing in high school. But it's only in the last few years that I've started recording new music. So far, I've released four collections (three EPs and an album) and six standalone singles of original songs.

Music isn't my only creative love. I had an award-winning career in radio, and I wrote a suspense fiction, "Echoes: A Novel." And, because I have a passion for learning, I went back to school to get my MBA, which I received in 2008.

I hope you'll enjoy my music. That's the only thing that drives me to create it. Thanks for listening.
