Earlier this morning, I had the distinct pleasure and honor of being the first radio disc jockey to play the new single from Australian guitar ninja Blake Noble's forthcoming album "Underdog."

The album, Noble's first U.S. release, will be unveiled Saturday night at the 4th Street Theater.  Tickets for the event are available at the Capitol Theater Box Office, on-line at www.TicketsWest.com, or by calling 509.853. ARTS (2787).

The evening of live music is presented by Chinook Fest and will feature several guest musicians including members of Yakima's own Not Amy

The video for the single, entitled "Truck," was released this morning as well.  The vid was filmed in the Yakima Valley and stars Larry Markwart.  (Blake can be seen sitting behind the counter in the gas station.)  The song features the vocals of Yakima's Cody Beebe (Cody Beebe & The Crooks).

As of this publication, Blake has 36 hours left on his kickstarter project.  If you would like to chip in to help this talented aspiring musician, click here.
