A true born and raised Victorian, Norm's first foray into music was growing up with an accordion in his home and learning to play by correspondence. But it wasn't until his high school years in the fall of 1963 when his interest in music was peaked by a young teacher who had just moved to Victoria from England and told him about the Beatles and other British artists that were about to break into North America. During that time he met friends Gary Garraway and Len Knoke who were both playing guitar so he chose to place bass on the advice of a family friend. The trio would later be joined by drummer Mark Valikoski and vocalist Tom Middleton to become The Marquis with Jerry Adolphe eventually replacing Valikoski on drums. Norm earned his Associate Degree in Music from Capilano College after a decade of pursuing a musical career and was inducted into the Victoria Music Hall of Fame in 2010 as a member of Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues Band. He continues to write/chart music, record, produce, manage a music publishing company and gig regularly with the Westcoast Blues Doctors or guest appearances with Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues Band.
