Jethro Tull: since 1995

Instruments: bass

In 1990 Jonathan Noyce joined The Royal Academy Of Music in London and studied bass guitar in context of jazz and commercial music. During that time he played with David Palmer (arranger and past-member Of JT), which brought him Estonia and Venezuela, playing orchestraded versions of songs by Jethro Tull, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd and others. In 1995 Jonathan was introduced to Martin Barre, working on his second solo-album "The Meeting". After the studio work, Martin Barre recommended Jonathan to Ian Anderson for playing at the Divinities Tour. Through the retirement of Dave Pegg from Jethro Tull to have more time for Fairport Convention, Jonathan Noyce got the chance to play for Jethro Tull. Between the tours and recordings with Jethro Tull Jonathan Noyce works as a bassist for several sessions and recordings (he also can be found on a some music of the boyband "Take That"). He enjoys the music of the sixties, especially Soul and Tamla music, he plays with a local band in London. Jonathan currently lives in London.
