"Blake Noble truly takes us on a globetrotting escapade on his album Underdog; we return cleansed and full of spirit previously unknown."
" The eight track ,mainly instrumental album draws upon Noble’s unique percussive guitar style that picks up where long lost legend Michael Hedges left off; but don’t be fooled this is not “New Age,” music rather a funk rock, jazz, world music fusion for this century. "
