On the night of January 2nd, 2021, our close friend and coworker Jonathan Lee Horne passed away after a brief but severe battle with bone cancer. Jonathan was part of the Joyful Noise Recordings family for nearly a decade.
He started as an intern and eventually moved into the roles of Subscriptions Manager and Customer Experience – where he touched many lives directly through email correspondence, by including special notes and drawings on packages, and personally making lathe-cut 7”s. He was a devoted friend and colleague who changed the lives of countless people in and around the Indiana music scene.
As an avid music lover, we honor Jonathan’s memory by spreading music to the future generations of his communities. 100% of the donations to the Jonathan Lee Horne Memorial Music Fund are used to purchase these guitars and musical gear for young and aspiring musicians in the three Indiana cities Jonathan called home: Indianapolis, Bloomington, and Kokomo.
