No Depression Magazine: "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 was born and raised in Twin Falls Idaho a mile from where Evel Knievel tried to jump the canyon on a motorcycle in the seventies.
Most recently a 1st place winner at the 2016 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter’s Competition (previous alum include Gregory Alan Isakov and Deb Talan of The Weepies), Korby is a dynamic, compelling performer.
And now he is is a published author. Korby’s book MEDIUM HERO is a collection of short stories based on his last decade touring the world and came out on Turner Publishing in December 2015 to enthusiastic reviews. Steve Wozniak said: "The stories in Medium Hero are just like his songs — clever and well-crafted, with a tendency to linger in your mind long after you’ve finished reading.”
