My Little Life
Says tastemaker magazine No Depression, “One of the most striking things about seeing Lenker perform is his relationship with his guitar. He doesn’t just play it, he becomes it — or maybe, it becomes a part of him.”
Firstborn son of a mortician and a schoolmarm — is a skilled multi-instrumentalist and an award-winning songwriter. He was born and raised in Twin Falls Idaho, a mile from where Evel Knievel tried to jump the canyon on a motorcycle.
Instantly recognizable in a bow-tie, purple jacket and highwater pants, Korby is a dynamic, compelling performer. Sometimes up on tip toe, sometimes singing in a hush, his performances are known for being engaging and personal. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer likened his voice to “cool lemonade on a hot summer day” – the same year he shared the stage with Willie Nelson at Marymoor park.
Korby released his 6th full length record in March of 2014, and has been touring heavily since. In February he signed a licensing deal with Secret Road, and shortly afterward his song If I Prove False to You was added to rotation on Sirius XM “The Coffeehouse.” Another track, Forbidden Fruit appeared on two episodes of AMC Family’s “The Fosters.” Music and Musicians Magazine dubbed Korby “Who’s Next” in their June 2014 issue. Korby released his fifth official video this year, for the quirky “Here We Go Again.”
A longtime writer of fiction and memoir, August 2014 found Korby releasing a book of short stories. Entitled “Medium Hero,” it is based on his 14 years of life as a touring indie musician.
Korby has performed internationally and has shared the stage with such legends as Willie Nelson and Ray Lamontagne, as well as Nickel Creek, Tristan Prettyman, Susan Tedeschi, and many others.
