Daily Discovery: Korby Lenker, “My Little Life”

It should be no surprise that the son of a mortician would make music with an appreciation for the absurd. “I’ve seen a lot of dead bodies,” says Korby with a sparkle of mischief. “I remember lots of times as a little kid waiting in the embalming room for my dad to finish filling someone with formaldehyde so we could go to the park and eat KFC.”

It makes sense then, that Korby’s brand of folk-pop is a quirky, lighthearted take on life’s more somber themes. This is especially evident in “My Little Life,” a witty celebration of unrealized dreams.

“My Little Life” was given the top honors at last year’s prestigious Kerrville New Folk Competition and will be included on Korby’s eponymous forthcoming album, produced by Tim Lauer.

Nashvillians can catch Korby this Thursday August 1st at The Basement.
