Growing up in Idaho, singer, songwriter Korby Lenker started taking piano lessons at the age of 8. While attending Western Washington University, he formed a regionally successful alt-bluegrass band called the Barbed Wire Cutters in the late 1990s.
When the Cutters broke up after a pair of well-received albums — 2002’s self-titled album and 2003’s “Full Moon to Rise” — he moved to Seattle to focus on a solo career, and then moved to Nashville in 2007. Lenker has released several solo albums; “First Takes” in 2001, “Ghost of Whiteboy” the year after, “Bellingham” in 2003, and “King of Hearts” in 2006. His self-titled album appeared in 2014.
Jesse Terry is an award-winning singer-songwriter who has toured the U.S., Europe and elsewhere. Along the way he landed a Nashville publishing deal and attended Berklee College of Music.
He’s a winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, The International Songwriting Competition, and the NSAI/CMT Song Contest. His songs have been featured on many network TV shows, including ABC’s “Forever,” the CWTV’s “Hart of Dixie,” and PBS’ “Roadtrip Nation.” He recently released a new EP, joining his three full-length albums.
The two perform at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5, at the Green Frog, 1015 N. State St. Tickets are $10.
