While maintaining a successful acting career, Stockman also relentlessly pursued his passion for music. For a time he made up one quarter of the band Shepherd's Pi, along with Claire Russell and former Family Affairs co-stars Angela Hazeldine and his on-screen brother, Rupert Hill. The band later split over musical differences.

Stockman and Hazeldine went on to form The Circus Electric.[1] The band released a debut LP and played gigs across the country to positive reviews. The band, despite its success, was disbanded in pursuit of something new.

Stockman is now a member of the band Colour of Bone.
