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.”
Korby Lenker - firstborn son of a mortician and a school marm - 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.
Winner of 1st place at the 2016 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter’s Competition (out of some 400 contestants), Korby is a dynamic, compelling performer — sometimes up on tip toe, singing in a hush, his performances are known for being engaging and personal, transparent and elevating. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer likened his voice to "cool lemonade on a hot summer day.”
In March 2017, “Let’s Just Have Supper” — a song Korby wrote and performed with Nora Jane Struthers — premiered on NPR’s All Songs Considered. The month before, he played an official showcase at Folk Alliance International, and in January we was a featured performer at the 30a songwriters festival.
His 7th album, “Thousand Springs” is set for release on Soundly Records in July of 2017. Produced by Korby and recorded mostly outside with the help of some select recording gear and battery made for climbing expeditions, Thousand Springs features 30 different artists from the young folk and Americana scene.
Korby released his 6th full length self-titled record in March of 2014, and 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 addition to his music, Korby is a longtime writer of fiction and memoir. In December 2015 he saw the release of his first book. Medium Hero is a collection of short stories based on his 14 years of life as a touring indie musician. Entitled Medium Hero, it came out on Turner Publishing in December 2015 to warm reviews.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said the stories in Medium Hero are “Clever and well-crafted, with a tendency to linger in your mind.” National Book Award winner Tim O’Brien said “Korby’s keen control of narrative voice is spot-on in each of these stories — distinctive, disarming, entertaining and completely convincing.”
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. When he’s not touring, he enjoys acting and reading novels.
Jeff Campbell’s onstage experiences have taken him to coast to coast countless times and found him sharing stages with John Mayer, members of Counting Crows, The Grateful Dead, and opening for Train. After being crowned winner of Guitar Center's National Singer Songwriter Competition out of over 13,000 entrants, his 2013 EP Release, “In Spite of Everything”, produced by 6x Grammy Winner John Shanks, premiered at #1 on the iTunes rock EPs and singles charts, following a performance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show.
Watch him strap an acoustic guitar on his back, board a public bus with 75 strangers, and traipse his way across the country. Here’s a singer-songwriter who loves nothing more than the sound of his voice reverberating off a music venue’s back walls. Yes, this is Jeff Campbell’s life, and as he’ll readily tell you, it isn’t so much a choice as it’s his calling. “This is just who I am” says the vocalist, impassioned songwriter and lifelong musician who with The Kitchen Sink, has at long last concocted the album that represents him at his core and is willing to do whatever it takes to feel the rush of human connection.
For Campbell, it’s all in the spirit of connectivity: eliminate as many barriers as possible between the writer and the audience. Sure, he knows he could record hundreds of videos on YouTube and pray one goes viral, but that’s not him. Even as his fanbase continues to swell, Campbell craves intimacy and immediacy. “Performing live is absolutely my favorite part of this thing.” Campbell says. “Whether it’s a big stage or a small room, there’s really no better feeling than connecting the music with the audience. When you know they’re with you, it’s the best ever.”
An emotional, evocative poet with a rock lover’s heart, Campbell navigated nearly a decade spent nursing a nine-to-five job before realizing you can only run so long from your true passion. Now, on The Kitchen Sink, he combines his hunger for stellar songcraft, rope-you-in riffs and threading melody into his most profound musical statement yet. It’s an album the soft-spoken singer views as his “…life’s work. So far.” and the passion and commitment to his craft is supremely evident in its cutting clarity.
