Stephen Martin Jocz, also known by his nickname Stevo 32, is a Canadian musician, singer, songwriter, music video director, and realtor. He is best known as the former drummer for the Canadian rock band Sum 41.
In 1999, the band signed an international record deal with Island Records. The band released their debut album, All Killer No Filler in 2001. The band achieved mainstream success with their first single from the album, "Fat Lip", which reached number-one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and remains the band's most successful single to date. All Killer No Filler' was certified platinum in the United States, Canada and in the UK. The band has since released five more studio albums: Does This Look Infected? (2002), Chuck (2004) Underclass Hero (2007), Screaming Bloody Murder (2011) and 13 Voices (2016). The three albums before Screaming Bloody Murder have been certified platinum in Canada.
The band often performs more than 300 times each year and holds long global tours, most of which last more than a year. They have been nominated for seven Juno Awards and have won twice (Group of the Year in 2002 and Rock Album of the Year for Chuck in 2005). Their fifth studio album, Screaming Bloody Murder, was released on March 29, 2011.
As of 2018, Jocz is working as a realtor for Paul Kaplan Group, where he lists his first job as drumming for Sum 41.
Jocz did again help out The Vandals on drums for some European dates in the summer of 2018.
In an interview, he states that he is an atheist. Although he was "raised in a church", he thinks religion is silly and is a great metaphor, but not true. According to his Instagram bio he is a part time drummer and a full time Realtor at The Paul Kaplan Group.
