You should also look in logback-classic not just logback-core.

I suspect this is because the Logback classic jar is on the classpath and is getting picked up. Long story short, I don't want log messages echo'd to stdout when running tests. Any ideas?

That's the default logback configuration kicking in. You can either 
create a LoggingContext per unit test, which is what logback's own unit 
tests do, or reset the default logger context, the one returned by 
LoggerFactory. Here is the code to reset the default logger context.

LoggerContext lc = (LoggerContext) LoggerFactory.getILoggerFactory();
