Biography

The Nocturnes can refer to one of three groups:

1. A vocal group, active in the late 1960s, that featured future members of The New Seekers. They were a 6-piece Mamas and Papas-style vocal group signed to EMI in 1967. Tim Rice wrote lyrics to the b-sides of their two EMI singles, neither of which charted. They are still active, performing live and releasing several live CDs and videos.

2. A California “alternative” band featuring guitarist/vocalist Emma Ruth Rundle, guitarist/vocalist Julian Rifkin, multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Paris Patt and drummer Dave Clifford (also of Red Sparowes). As a duo featuring Rundle and drummer Daniel Yasmin, The Nocturnes released their debut Wellington EP in January 2008 while based in New Zealand. Upon returning to Los Angeles, the duo issued the full length A Year of Spring the following year. In this time, Rundle formed a close musical connection with Patt, who contributed bass guitar to the debut album. On the “Live on KXLU” EP, Rundle was joined by Rifkin for the drum-less session when Yasmin was unable to play. Yasmin left the band shortly thereafter, relocating to the Bay Area. In 2010, the band re-formed as a quartet.

3. A big band based out of the Jersey Shore
