What's the natural path for the youngest of three sons of a pastor and his wife in Sanford, North Carolina? He becomes a singer/songwriter, of course.
John Norris's love of music was forged in the church and country music tradition of his home town. Singing with his family in church and picking up the guitar at age 10, he learned his craft alongside family and friends, with a healthy dose of YouTube to hone his skills.
At age 14, John turned to writing music to help deal with the hardships of his mom’s disability and other circumstances in life. Then, at just 16, John hit the road playing at bars, festivals, and music venues. Within two years he headed to Nashville to network, write and grow in knowledge of the music industry.
John recorded his debut Nashville record at Direct Image Recording Studio, with producer Kenny Royster. The tracks include: “God’s Up To Somethin”, “Thank God She Did”, “This Town”, “Good Jeans”, “Natural Light”, and “Lonely Don’t Last Long”.
In the midst of 2020, John built his circle and his team. Major supporters, Adam and Doreen Herget now play key roles in his career. John added friend and supporter Michael Gomez who owns and operates Westlight Photography Studios in Nashville TN.
Two recent additions to Team Norris are Ray Williams and John Davenport. Ray discovered Elton John, introduced Elton to Bernie Taupin, and kick started Elton’s musical career. Ray is also the founder of Crumbs Music and Media. John is a legendary recording engineer, having worked on many iconic records. He produces and directs films, and is capturing the John Norris story as it unfolds.
With the help of Team Norris, John is making a national push in the summer of 2021 in pursuit of his lifelong dream of sharing his music with the world.
Stay tuned - John Norris and his music will bring light to your life, and sweet country sounds to your ears in the years to come.
