Keri Noble

For a few reasons -- all of them superficial -- Keri Noble has been compared to Norah Jones at times. Both of them are romantic, piano-playing singer/songwriters who were in their twenties in the early 2000s, and both of them have ties to veteran producer Arif Mardin; he produced Jones' smash Come Away With Me album, and Mardin is one of the executive producers on Noble's debut album, Fearless. But stylistically, Noble and Jones are very different artists -- and truth be told, Noble has much more in common with Sarah McLachlan, Paula Cole, or former October Project singer Mary Fahl. Jones brings a definite jazz influence to the table; she isn't a jazz singer per se, but is a pop singer who has been affected by jazz, cabaret, Tin Pan Alley, and torch singing. Noble, however, is coming from more of an adult alternative perspective; where Fearless is concerned, McLachlan's Fumbling Towards Ecstasy is a much better comparison than Come Away With Me. And while Jones tends to be romantically comforting, Noble's introspective, vulnerable lyrics can be dark at times -- lyrically and melodically, Fearless is not a terribly happy or cheerful album.

Although Fearless has a secular orientation, Noble grew up listening to mostly Christian music. Born in Ft. Worth, TX, in 1977 and raised in Detroit, Noble is the daughter of a Protestant minister. Noble's father was born and raised in Peru before immigrating to the United States; while the vast majority of Latinos are Catholic, Noble's dad was the pastor of a Spanish-speaking Baptist church in the southwestern part of the Motor City. Meanwhile, Noble's mother also had a Christian outlook and taught Spanish at one of Detroit's Protestant high schools. Noble attended a Protestant high school herself, but despite her Christian upbringing, she didn't pursue a career in either gospel or modern Christian pop. Eventually, secular music became her main focus, and one person who can take a lot of credit for that is Joni Mitchell. When Noble was in her late teens, someone gave her a copy of Mitchell's Blue -- that 1971 classic (which was recorded six years before Noble was born) was her first exposure to Mitchell, and after falling in love with Blue, Noble got more and more into songwriting and became quite serious about pursuing a career as a secular singer/songwriter.

Noble began performing her own material at small coffeehouses in and around Detroit, where she usually accompanied herself on electric keyboards. Detroit was where Noble met musician Billy McLaughlin, who felt that she had serious potential and offered her work in Minneapolis. Noble ended up moving to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, which she felt was a better environment for singer/songwriters than the Motor City. McLaughlin introduced Noble to producer Jeff Arundel, who helped her shop a demo -- and in 2003, she signed with Manhattan/EMI Records. Arundel was hired to produce and arrange Noble's debut album, Fearless; Manhattan/EMI executives Arif Mardin and Ian Ralfini became the album's executive producers. Fearless was given a March 2004 release date. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi

Compared to Norah Jones? Oh hell no - she kicks Norah Jones' a**. Keri Noble is on a level with Grace Potter. Norah Jones is sleepy-time music.

Love this woman!!!
Amazing!
Good lawd she can belt out a tune. Definitely grooving with Ms. Noble!
Just saw Keri sing live in WI. Didn't really know what to expect, but as soon as she started singing I was blown away! Not only does she have a great voice (reminds me a little of Pink) but is also a gifted piano player. Love her!

It's funny how life is. I was taking a bath thinking about my life. This song was playing and I started listening to the words and they were exactly what I was feeling and thinking. I got out of the bath soaking wet to see who sang this song. It just made my moment of clarity even clearer. Amazing!!
This woman's voice stopped me in my tracks. Holy Cow! What a gift.
I had to stop and look to see who is singing this song.
Keri's output is now among my favorites - and I owe it to Pandora (thought to be fair and not sound like a plant shilling them - I've not come across anyone new in about a month that I liked). I will have to seek out this album!
ooh oh... ooh oh oh... what a BEAUT of a song!!! - keep up that great work Keri!!! You gotta fan in me!!!

beautiful voice and heart-felt music.
Keri has an incredibly deep soul that is all at once in touch with reality and years beyond her age. To compare her to Nora Jones is like comparing a good merlot to a vintage port. Yes, they both are made from grapes but any further comparison only serves to show one's lack of knowledge of the subject. I enjoy Nora. I adore Keri. Her music is without comparison. She is completely unique and extremely underrated.
I've been fortunate enough to meet her and see her perform twice in a very small venue in Columbus, Ohio. If you purchase her music, rest assured she's a genuine, amazing person who truly appreciates her fan base!
I agree!! Thanks Pandora for introducing us to some artists we probably wouldn't have been exposed to otherwise.
i don't think i've heard of her...i was doing something on another page and had to stop and see who this was singing...lo v e her voice...she could sing to me forever!!
I like it!
I love Pandora for introducing me to artists I've never really listened to or heard of before! Awesome stuff
love her, thanks pandora!
wow, never heard of her before, really like her voice, thank you pandora!
I have been listening to Keri Noble since about 1998. She is amazing. Her first album is hard to find; it's called Lullaby. If you can get your hands on it; it's her best album.
Her CD with dark hair up there is not from 2005. It is 2009. Keri is very good.
Sarah M, Sade, and now Kerri Noble...Wow
Wow! what an amazing voice, i can't believe i have not heard of her yet. Every time I hear her, "Ooh-Oh", song, it stops me from working. I want to hear more.
v.ro68
What is the name of her new CD? Was it out on Feb 3,'09? Never heard her before. She has a beautiful voice!!
nkluver
I can't wait till Feb 3, 09! Her new cd is going to be out! I have seen her in concert twice and everytime she takes my breath away.
Absolutely love her, what an amazing voice!
fontanez6
Where can I buy Red Wine til Daylight?
Keri is amazing..I agree, she needs her new CD out asap.
lylee65
I love both Sarah (McLachlan) and Norah, but I agree this girl sounds more like Sarah. I thought it was Sarah at first.
shamrock0
It sounds very nice! Is she ever going to put out another CD?
I agree with Stacey, great sound. I am not so much a Norah Jones fan so I don't hear the resemblence but very beautiful voice. How powerful to make the noise Ooh-Oh sexy!
I really like her. I'm also a fan of Norah Jones though... Similar sounds. Great voice. Very natural... almost raw... but in a good way. I like it a lot. Great sound.
