One-time Bellingham singer and ukulele-player Korby Lenker, who now lives in Nashville, performs at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9, at the Green Frog, 1015 N. State St., with pop-folk duo Banner Days, Beth Whitney and Branford Loomis.
Lenker met the Banner Days when they both played at Lincoln Center as finalists for a contest called “NewSong.” He also just returned from a monthlong tour in Europe.
Lenker’s new song, “Pendulum,” was featured in the PBS series’ “Shelter Me” soundtrack curated in October, and SiriusXM The Coffeehouse added one of the tracks, “If I Prove False,” from his new self-titled record to its rotation in April and continues to spin it daily.
Also, his song “Forbidden Fruit” appeared in two episodes of ABC Family’s “The Fosters;” Music and Musicians Magazine named him “Who’s Next” in a full page spread of their June 2014 issue; and he voiced and played guitar for a character on a blockbuster video game, “Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2,” which has sold more than four million copies.
Lenker, who was well-known in Bellingham for his band, The Barbed Wire Cutters, released his self-published book, “Medium Hero, “ in August, with 23 stories culled from more than 60 written as a touring solo indie artist. For more about him, go to korbylenker.com.
