Accolades are coming in for the troubadour and his album IDAHO, which will be released on February 16. Mary Gauthier, King’s longtime collaborator, began the wave of praise when she noted, “IDAHO, David Robert King’s new record, is a stunning soundscape of whispered confessions and poignant observations. A beautiful collection of haunting songs, it deserves a good listen.” Grammy-winning singing titans The Blind Boys of Alabama also approve, as they came on board to augment King’s brooding vocals with their harmonies on the title track “Idaho.”
Korby Lenker – 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, 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 Eldridge, Anthony Da Costa, Carrie Elkin, Angel Snow, Amy Speace, Matt the Electrician, and many others.
