William (Bill) Norwood's
career as a musician began at the age of 4, through the encouragement of his mother, Dorothy Norwood. Throughout elementary and high school he sang in choir ensembles and developed a proficiency with percussion instruments and drums.
His first professional engagement was performing in his church. That experience led to performing Jazz and other styles of music. He has performed with acts such as: Robert "Magic Man" Winters, The Gospel Hummingbirds, Lenny Williams, The Drifters, Robin Duhe (original bassist for Frankie Beverly) and others.
Mr. Norwood has recorded with many artists in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is currently involved in several projects such as "Top Shelf Classics" and is a principle musician and coach with "Industry Coach" for TIBC TV. Industry Coach is dedicated to using the principles of Gratitude and Peace in educating and promoting young talent.
