Nonoko Yoshida was born in 1987 in Hokkaido, Japan. She studied classical piano from the age of three, and began playing the saxophone as her main instrument at age 10. During her school years in Japan, she performed in the local jazz scene with school friends and professionals in numerous cooperative bands, and her own units.

In 2006, she moved to New York where she experienced a life-changing encounter with the Downtown Music Scene. Since then, she has been learning music in the streets from the underground musicians themselves, attending concerts, rehearsals, recording and mastering sessions and seeing the mechanics of making music first hand. She currently studies saxophone with reed player and composer Ned Rothenberg.

Since 2006 she has played at many improvisation sessions and with various bands. Her recent activities include curating a series of live concerts at The Stone, a music venue dedicated to avant-garde and experimental music, and her band project SSSS (Super Seaweed Sex Scandal) played at the Moers Festival in Germany 2010 and has a self-tltled CD-EP, and her band Pet Bottle Ningen, with Dave Scanlon and drummer Dave Miller, toured Japan in 2010 and has a self-titled CD on the Tzadik label, both available from downtownmusicgallery.com and other purveyors of improvised music.
