Chris Noble (1982-) was born and raised in the Lake District town of Kendal.  Following a music undergraduate degree at Sheffield University, Chris undertook a PhD in composition under the tutelage of George Nicholson, graduating in 2009.
Chris lists a number of diverse influences upon his work including jazz pianists Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans, alongside contemporary composers such as Marc-Anthony Turnage and Richard Rodney Bennett.  Compositionally, he is primarily interested in integrating jazz harmonies into a more contemporary ‘classical’ context.
Away from Platform 4, Chris devotes time to teaching, both privately and at the Sheffield Music School; running the Medics’ Original Jazz Orchestra at Sheffield University; and playing jazz piano in a number of groups, most notably with the Noble/Jouanny/Hunter trio.
