JON STOCKMAN

Jon has been an active member of the hugely successful Australian band  Karnivool playing bass for them for 22 years. He began music at a young age when he started learning piano at 6 years old and has been playing bass guitar for 25 years. 

With their acclaimed 2005 debut 'Themata' and 2009's ground breaking follow-up 'Sound Awake', Karnivool established themselves as one of the most vital forces in progressive modern music. The band belied expectations again with their third album, the brazen and introspection ' Asymmetry' (released July 2013). Asymemetry became their first number 1 Album, outselling all other artists combined in the Australian top ten and saw them pick up their first ever ARIA award. This album was one of the most acclaimed albums of 2013 and achieved gold status in just ten days.

 

In addition to this, Jono loves to help others and deems the relationships he holds within Music Rocks Australia as very important to him. Those who are lucky enough to work with Jon will gain an invaluable and priceless life experience and develop skills and knowledge about music that are world class and life changing.
