Portland's Leigh Marble Has a New Music Video

We really like Leigh Marble.

Not only is there an extremely compelling story behind the singer/songwriters gutsy music— especially from his latest album Where the Knives Meet Between the Rows— but the Ivy League graduate's work is just wickedly good.

In fact, Where the Knives finished 2012 at 69 of our top 200 albums of the year. And if the growth between his 2007 album Red Tornado and that album is any indication of what we can expect from Marble's next release, look out, because this guy is a real student of rock and roll.

Marble was also a selection to our Concert Wish List for Bend from earlier this year.

This month, Marble released the first music video from Where the Knives for the track "Pony."

It's a lighthearted video that pokes fun at the gap-of-wants that often exists between people who randomly hook-up without thinking things through or knowing each other very well. Marble himself stars in the video along with Cora Benesh from the movie City Baby. It was directed by Robin Washburn.

Accompanying the video was an EP with an alternate version of "Pony" as well as one of "Nail," one of Marble's darker tracks.
