While trading songs at a songwriter gathering in Nashville, Idaho native and high school teacher David Robert King’s boneyard truth telling, worn and vulnerable voice and magnetic melodies were overheard by legendary singer/songwriter Mary Gauthier, who told King “I have a feeling we will get together someday.” This speculation led to King and Gauthier gracing stages throughout North America. David has also shared the stage with Josh Ritter, The Mark O’Connor Band, Tim O’Brien, Loudon Wainwright III, Darrell Scott and Over The Rhine, and has collaborated with Emily Saliers of The Indigo Girls and Jonatha Brooke.

King’s dark, sometimes humorous songs are unapologetically personal while grounded in the arid soil of his native Idaho. His songs reverberate with the sting of the high desert wind and the hidden power of the Snake River. This combination led to a Top 40 song on folk and roots radio, wide critical acclaim and featured spots at the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and 2018 30A Festival.

The Bluegrass Situation raved King, saying, “If you appreciate the likes of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, you might well enjoy what he’s up to.”

Accolades are already coming in for ‘Idaho,’ which will be released on February 16. Mary Gauthier, King’s longtime collaborator, began the wave of praise when she noted, “Idaho, David Robert King’s new record, is a stunning soundscape of whispered confessions and poignant observations. A beautiful collection of haunting songs, it deserves a good listen.” Grammy-winning singing titans The Blind Boys of Alabama also approve, as they came on board to augment King’s brooding vocals with their harmonies on the title track ‘Idaho.’
