Bob Noble

Bob Noble was born in Leicestershire, England, and started playing piano at the age of eight. By the time he was eleven he was playing and singing semi-professionally, winning lots of talent competitions, and appearing on television at the age of twelve. As soon as he was eighteen Bob turned professional with The Big Jump Band, and toured Europe playing in clubs and also on U. S. bases.

In 1975 Bob formed a band with Paul Muggleton, Chris Birkett and Mike Spencer-Arscott called Omaha Sheriff. Writing most of the songs with Paul, they signed to Tony Visconti's label in the UK, Good Earth, and RCA in the States. The album "Come Hell or Waters High" was a national breakout in Billboard magazine, but it didn't translate into sales. It reached 175 in the Billboard chart. A second album was recorded in 1978, but the record company (Good Earth) closed, and the members of Omaha Sheriff went their separate ways. Bob continued to write with Paul Muggleton.

In 1979 Bob and Paul joined Judie Tzuke's band. Judie had a top 20 UK hit with 'Stay With Me Till Dawn', and they toured extensively in England and Europe. She was signed to Rocket Records, Elton John's label, and after playing on her album 'Sports Car', the band toured the US for three months opening for Elton, including his gig in Central Park to an estimated 450,000 people.

Bob continued to tour, write and record with Judie for several tours and albums, most of which made the UK top twenty. He then began to play sessions and gigs with several other bands and artists, and toured extensively with many of them (listed in albums and tours). During this time Bob wrote many songs with Paul Muggleton and Judie Tzuke, among others.

From 1981-1984 Bob was signed to EMI publishing, and had songs covered by several artists throughout the world, including Judie, Kiki Dee and Agnetha Faltsog (Abba).

In 1992 Bob and his family moved to the US (Seattle, Washington), and in 1995 they moved to Lake Worth in Florida (they like heat!). He now has a home studio where he has produced, engineered and arranged several CD's for local artists, and has also written and produced background music and several adverts for TV. Bob also plays regularly with multi-talented singer and instrumentalist, Bobby O'Donovan, in an Irish duo called Fire In The Kitchen - www.fireinthekitchen.info at different venues in South Florida.
