In 1990 after the members of Spandau Ballet went their separate ways, Steve moved to Ibiza and discovered his love for club & dance music. During his 13 years on the island he worked with numerous musicians, producers and DJ’s and he was involved in various original productions & compilations. He joined forces with The Ministry of Sound’s Hed Kandi label as saxman for hire, performing regularly at live events with DJs across the globe.
In 2009 Spandau Ballet reunited and undertook the world wide ‘Reformation Tour’ including 3 sold out shows at the O2 Arena London. In October that year they released their new album ‘Once More’ with the title track co-written by Steve.

A 65 date world tour with Spandau Ballet followed in 2015 with, as fate would have it, the final show featuring the original lineup in Hong Kong.

In addition to his ongoing dance projects, Steve played saxophone, guitar, percussion, and sang for and with Iggy Pop, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Glen Gregory (Heaven 17), Marc Almond, Glen Matlock, Clem Burke, Kim & Marty Wilde, Belinda Carlisle, Nick Heyward, Marc JB (Bimbo Jones), Jeremy Healey and many more.

His love and passion for David Bowie's music involved him helping to kickstart the band project, Holy Holy featuring “Spiders from Mars” Woody Woodmansey and Bowie/TRex producer, Tony Visconti alongside members of Mick Ronson’s family. Steve also played and toured with further Bowie musicians such as Earl Slick, Sterling Campbell, Gail Ann Dorsey and Mike Garson.

In summer 2017 Steve was personally invited by Iggy Pop to play saxophone on his smash hit "Real Wild Child" at one of Iggy's festival shows in France. 

The multi-instrumentalist and music producer, Steve Norman is also a songwriter and solo singer. Songs like "Motivator" (Spandau Ballet), "Once More" (Spandau Ballet), "We Are King" (Holy Holy), numerous solo tracks and the legendary saxophone solo of the Spandau Ballet classic "True" were written by him.

Due to popular demand Steve and his band, The Sleevz will return to PizzaExpress Live in *2 shows in June. They will perform songs that influenced his musical career along with some of his favourite Spandau Ballet tunes. He will also present new songs composed by him for upcoming release.  And no doubt share a few stories.
