Longtime East Nashville resident Korby Lenker returned to his native Idaho to record his 7th studio album Thousand Springs. Eschewing the standard recording studio, Lenker recorded his latest batch of songs in various places important to him as a child - the Snake River Canyon (see pic below), Craters of the Moon, and in a small cabin north of Sun Valley. Letting the natural landscape set the tone, he recorded during the day and slept in a tent at night. Then, after laying down the guitar and vocal tracks, Korby took to the road, adding more than 30 artists to his dozen songs, including Critter EldridgeAnthony Da CostaCarrie ElkinAngel SnowAmy SpeaceMatt the Electrician, and many others.

Korby is the recipient of numerous songwriting awards - most recently a 1st place win at the 2016 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriters’ contest (past alum include Gregory Alan Isakov and Deb Talen, to name a few). In March, 
NPR Music premiered the song and video he wrote and performed with Nora Jane Struthers ‘Let’s Just Have Supper.’ Korby tours constantly and has shared the stage with Willie NelsonRay LamontagneNickel Creek and many others.

In addition to his musical creations, Korby is a published author. His collection of short stories, 
Medium Hero, came out December 2015 on Turner Publishing and received critical praise from such variegated sources as National Book Award-winning author Tim O’Brien, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Kirkus Reviews


Korby Lenker Press Quotes.
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.”  - No Depression
*****
His self-titled new album is filled with excellent playing, charming hooks and lots of spirited variety — from rootsy vibes to indie-pop.”  - Idaho Statesman
*****
“…sweet, likable, even huggable folk-pop confections.” - American Songwriter Magazine
