KORBY LENKER’S 7th STUDIO ALBUM
WASN’T RECORDED IN A STUDIO.

It was created on the edge of the Snake River Canyon, in a cabin north of Sun Valley, Idaho, in his father’s mortuary, and in a dozen other places. For music as unique and personal as Korby’s, it only made sense that the actual creation of THOUSAND SPRINGS be part of the story.

Says Lenker: “I grew up in Idaho. My first band, Clockwork Orange, practiced in a basement in Twin Falls. I learned how to play guitar by listening to records and learning the licks, one note at a time. The way I play and think about music now has a lot to do with growing up there, feeling isolated from the outside world. There weren’t a lot of people around me making music. I had to go out and find it.”

His deliberate approach to music is the mainstay of career now tipping into its third decade. Along the way there have been numerous songwriting awards(including 1st Place wins at the 2016 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriters Showcase) and festival appearances, (Sasquatch, Bumbershoot). Lenker has also shared the stage with such luminaries as Willie Nelson, Ray Lamontagne, Nickel Creek, Chris Isaak, to name a few.

It was in the publication of MEDIUM HERO, Lenker’s first collection of short stories (Turner Publishing, December 2015) that he found his true voice, as well as his vision for THOUSAND SPRINGS.
