A transplant from Detroit to Minneapolis, Keri Noble is a piano-driven singer/songwriter whose passion and penchant for living life on her own terms radiates from her music.
After growing up in an environment where secular music was not readily available, Noble was inspired, like so many, by Joni Mitchell’s historic album Blue, to find her own voice in songwriting. Keri gained the attention of the world-famous producer, Arif Mardin, and a recording deal with EMI/Manhattan Records soon followed. Worldwide touring supported her debut release Fearless. In 2009, she released her 2nd record, Keri Noble, on Telarc/Concord Music Group.
That album brought her more success, including the song “Emily” being used on the TV show “Grey's Anatomy” and an appearance on CBS's The Early Show. Kelly Clarkson recorded her song “If No One Will Listen,” and included it on her Grammy-nominated album All I Ever Wanted.
2010 started out with a two-week tour of Iraq to entertain the troops. “I was amazed by the incredible sacrifice made by the troops and their families.” Tours of Japan, Mexico and the U.S. followed.
Noble’s next album, When It Don’t Come Easy, was released in September 2010 on her own label, KikoSaysSo Music. “It’s been a dream of mine to be able to have complete creative control of my music. Having my own label and producing the upcoming CD has allowed me to fulfill that dream.”
Keri’s latest album, More Than Santa, was released by KikoSaysSo on November 25, 2011. Featuring “Everything I Want for Christmas” and “Givin’ You My Love”, the album elegantly captures the mood and spirit of the holidays.
In early 2011 Keri became a regular appearing on KFAN, the Twin Cities leading sports talk radio station creating and hosting the segment “Keri Around Town”. The segment highlighted the entertainment happenings in the area. This success led Keri to become a full time radio personality in 2012, co-hosting “Oake and Keri in the Morning” with Brian Oake on Cities 97 daily from 6:00am – 9:00am. In January, 2016 Keri began as the sole host of "Keri in the Morning" on Cities97. In April, 2016 Keri was joined by Greg Thunder on her radio show now called "Keri and Greg in the Morning". Keri also enjoys guest hosting on the TV show “Twin Cities Live” on ABC in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Keri's 7 song EP entitled Softer Place to Land was released November 29, 2013 on KikoSaysSo Music. Keri’s latest song, released in December 2014 is titled “Real Life Love Song”.
The EP Find My Way Home was released on Dec. 5, 2016. It features a collection of songs reflecting the happiness and peace that Keri has found in her life.
In 2017 Keri began giving voice lessons. This became an unexpected love as she discovered her passion in helping others find their voice in music. Over the course of the year and into 2018, this grew to over 40 students.
November of 2018 was a month of change. On Nov. 22, Keri departed her role as host of “Keri in the Morning” on Cities97. She did this as she found that the voice lessons not only helped her discover the passion of mentoring, it helped rekindle her love of creating and performing her music.
On that same day, Keri released her latest collection of music Hurricane. This is an intimate and personal statement in its presentation.
