Singer- Songwriter and Multi-Instrumentalist Korby Lenker is set to perform a show with Nora Jane Struthers & the Party Line at Seven Steps Up Live Music & Event Venue in Spring Lake, MI tonight. He'll also be joining Mike on The Mic in-studio this afternoon. 

Raised in Idaho, Lenker began performing at a young age. In high school, he was in a band, Clockwork Orange, that performed new wave and rock music.  As a student at Western Washington University, Lenker became a founding member of the Alt-Bluegrass band The Barbed Wire Cutters.  

With the Barbed Wire Cutters he released two studio albums: the self-titled Barbed Wire Cutters in 2002 and 2003's Full Moon to Rise.  Following the release of the second album, Lenker left the band to work on his solo career, which he had begun while a member of  Barbed Wire Cutter. His first album First Takes was released in 2001, with Ghost of Whiteboy and Bellingham following in 2002 and 2003. His most recent album Thousand Springs was released this past July.
