Korby's Spring Tour Begins Today
New Blog: ThousandSprings.org
Korby has created a new blog, documenting the making of his 7th studio album, Thousand Springs. The blog chronicles the unfolding story of the album's creation as Korby journeys across the country and overseas with a carload full of recording gear. The bulk of the recording will be done in Twin Falls, Idaho - Korby's hometown - and will take place in various locations known to Korby's formative years (his childhood home, the mortuary where his father worked, the church he grew up in) as well as several outdoor wilderness locations. Follow this unusual journey at thousandsprings.org.

Get your Audio Autograph for Medium Hero
In the spirit of this quirky collection of short stories, I wanted to do something equally quirky for anyone who picks it up. SO, I'm trying this thing I call the Audio Autograph. What it means is, I'm sending a one-of-a-kind, personalized song to every person who buys a copy. It's an experiment, see? All you have to do is 1) purchase a copy of Medium Hero on amazon or your local bookstore and 2) send a picture (or forward an email) of the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org . Sometime this December, we'll film me playing you a personalized song and send it your way. Fun right? Get at it! And if you like info, there's more of that here.
Medium Hero is out today on Turner Publishing
Order your copy today! Korby's first book is now available everywhere! Out on Turner Publishing, Korby's collection of 27 short stories is getting rave reviews from all comers! Says National Book Award winning author Tim O'Brien, Medium Hero is "distinctive, disarming, entertaining, and completely convincing. Apple Computers co-founder Steve Wozniak called Korby's stories "clever and well-crafted, with a tendency to linger in your mind long after you've finished reading. And Kirkus Reviews said that Medium Hero is "a quick, pleasurable set of short stories that track the emotional and intellectual struggle of several young men." These handsome books are perfectly sized to fit in your back pocket (or stocking!) and are just another iteration or Korby's quirky, heartfelt talent.
