Official Video for "Here We Go Again" out today!

The official video for "Here We Go Again" just debuted on The Nashville Scene. Directed by Caleb Kuhl, the video was shot on location at Point Dume, Malibu, and Studio City CA. Just as the song's lighthearted melody belies a theme at once complicated and common, Kuhl's collage-approach to narrative imitates the cyclic nature of offense-and-reconciliation that exists in every relationship. Featuring Jessica Paterson.

Korby named "Who's Next" in Music & Musicians Magazine

Korby was named "Who's Next" in the June 2014 issue of Music & Musicians Magazine. Says Korby in the article: "What's really hard is to hit people in the heart
and to reach them...that's what I'm trying to do: make
music that's easily likeable, but with a kind of secret sophistication."

Day off in #Bozeman . Over a breakfast of chorizo I made a list of some of the songs I've written in the last 2 years but haven't recorded..I didn't realize it's almost 20...I've been kicking around this idea for a project called "The Spirit and the Flesh" where one side has the more poppy stuff I've done (ala my current piranha record) and one side has all the more lyric-driven folk stuff. What started this is, I really like a song I wrote about Chief Sitting Bull and I want to make a collection of songs it can hang out with. Songs like "Late Bloomers" and "Her Heart is Like a Rose." That's the Spirit. But there are other songs, straight poppy numbers like "Uh Oh" and "Pendulum" that need to get out there too. Some great collaborations on that list! @lizlongley @robbyhecht @imangelsnow @angelalauer .. Life is short and there is #SoMuchMusic to make

Sandpoint, Idaho This morning I woke up early from the time change. The air inside my parents' house was fresh and cold so I put all my clothes on first thing. During the summer it's all screen doors and windows here, day and night. Actual doors don't spend much time being closed. I made coffee, standing by the machine for five minutes doing nothing but listening to the the bubbling noises and looking across the room at my mom's collection of Thomas Kincaid paintings (no comment). The machine beeped, so I poured some of the coffee into a mug advertising my dad's mortuary. I took a sip and honestly it tasted sort of bad. I never get the ratios right out here. I slid open the back screen door and carried the mug out onto the porch. I sat down on a step. There's been a lot of rain this summer, so everything is 2 clicks greener than I've ever seen it. Candy green. Willy Wonka green. I looked at the green backyard disappearing into the even greener forest. The sun had not yet cleared the hill so there was a slight blueish tint laying over everything. Very still. As I watched, a doe and her fawn came cautiously, bravely, into the picture. Slow delicate high-steps. When she lifted her leg above the grass I could see the shine on her hoof from the dew. She led her fawn toward the salt lick my dad left on a stump. I drank coffee and the doe licked salt. The fawn waited its turn, watching me. When Mother was done she took a step back and her fawn stretched up and put its front hooves on the stump. It leaned forward and I watched its tiny pink tongue stick out and touch the salt. The little head nodded up and down, licking, while the doe stood by. We both watched the fawn.

My friend Gary makes tortoise shell picks out of old pick guards. He sent me an email a few weeks ago, asking what size pick I used and would I like one for free. These things cost like 50 bucks so I said yes and please make it a 2.0 mm beveled edge (best tone, least amt of pick noise). It arrived this morning, complete with handwritten instructions, and my name on the pick. Thanks Gary!

I went to Haiti when I was twelve. Went again a few weeks ago. This time I got to hang out, learn names, play football...I thought I would be glad to go, glad to leave, you know? Turns out I miss it alot more than I thought I would. I'm sitting in my car in the Green Hills Mall parking lot, about to pick up my laptop from the Apple store, and I'm thinking about what's important in life, and more to the point, what isn't. #tbt
