Born: August 8, 1977
Noam Elron is a bit of a strange bird on the music scene. Although a music lover from a young age, he began to actively make music seriously only in his mid-twenties. Thus he is a recent arrival, having little institutional training.
In the few years since then, however, he has closed many gaps. Having studied the double-bass privately under Eli Kosov, Merav Reuel-Moyal and Gilad Abro, he has become an in-demand player, taking part in a variety of projects, both live and in the studio (playing Rock, R&B, traditional and contemporary Jazz, ECM, Nu-Jazz, Funk, Cabaret, and whatnot), and appearing on some of Israel's finest venues and festivals (Israel Festival, Tel-Aviv Jazz Festival, Caesarea Jazz Plus, to name a few). In parallel, he studied composition with Arik Shapira, Shai Cohen and Aviya Kopelman....
... subtlety and understatement on this lyrical and introspective effort... Elron is captivating as both a bassist and a composer... --Alex V. Henderson
