Details of Keri Noble and the Ticket Luck value
Keri Noble was born in 1975 and is an American singer-songwriter born in Fort Worth, Texas and raised in Detroit.
Early Brought up
The musician foud her roots in Detroit, it would be easy to assume that Keri Noble grew up in the 80s surrounded by the rich musical history and culture of the Motor City.
But the fact of the matter was that the daughter of a Christian pastor in a small, Spanish-speaking church on Detroits southwest side, was raised in a strict household where secular music was generally frowned upon.
Her tilt towards music
By her late teens, though, shed heard enough bits and pieces of R&B, hip-hop and other urban sounds - on car radios or MTV videos playing at friends houses to realize that there was an entire world waiting outside the walls of the church.
But it was the voice of Joni Mitchell, more than anything else, that steered Noble toward songwriting. One listen to Mitchells 1971 album, Blue, and she suddenly had a sense of direction.And so began the songwriting, more as a means of personal expression than as an attempt to launch a career as a professional musician.
After a few years of writing and polishing, Noble put together a demo and gave it to guitarist Billy McLaughlin on one of his tour stops in Detroit. The two musicians became friends, and McLaughlin eventually invited Noble to open for him at a show at the Fine Line in Minneapolis. While there, he introduced her to some members of the local music scene. At 24, Noble left Detroit and made the permanent move to Minneapolis.
Contract with EMI
In 2003, she signed with EMI/Manhattan. Her debut album, Fearless, was released the following year and met with high praise from the press.
The CD got picked up in so many worldwide markets that she got to do a lot of touring in Europe and Asia. The downside was that Fearless enjoyed far less exposure in the States than it did elsewhere.
The whole experience prompted Noble to ask herself some very basic questions about whether she wanted to continue to pursue music professionally. In the end, she decided that there was still more to be done, on a scale and she signed with JVC and released Let Go in Japan in November 2007.
In addition to the success of Let Go, she has also branched out into other media. Her music has been used in popular TV series on either side of the world, So You Think You Can Dance in the U.S. and Handsome Woman in Japan.
Her song Look At Me, was featured in the Japanese film, Tokyo Tower. In addition, her music is currently part of an 18-month TV commercial campaign in Japan for Shiseido cosmetics.
In 2008 Noble signed with Telarc Records in the United States and will release her first full-length album (self titled) in three years in February, 2009. In June, she released her EP, Leave Me in the Dark, and November will bring the release of her first-ever holiday cd, Winter Comes Again, which she produced herself.
Currently, Noble resides in Minneapolis with her cat, Akiko, and continues to tour both the U.S. and Japan in support of her albums.
