R.I.P: Jason Noble

Jason Noble, member of influential acts such as Rodan, Rachel's and Shipping News, sadly lost his three year battle against cancer earlier this month. He left us with so many fine musical moments; none better than Rodan's solitary album, Rusty (more on the album in a previous post on this blog).

Jason explored a slew of musical avenues after the beginnings of Rodan, turning his energies toward the more elegant soundscapes that later formed Rachel's. He then teamed back up with Rodan band mate, Jeff Mueller, to form Shipping News, which - aesthetically - sat somewhere between his former projects mentioned above.

Jason's obituary can be read over at Caring Bridge. R.I.P, Jason. Your artistic contributions to this World will be missed enormously.
