The past year has been a big one for Idaho native David Robert King. This 30 year old Singer/Songwriter and Boise resident has shared the stage with Loudon Wainwright III and Josh Ritter, had a song in the top 40 on the folk music charts, is releasing a brand new album, and now he’s moving away. David and his wife of 2 years, Marita, are moving back east in order for her to attend graduate school.

Commemorating his farewell to Idaho and to celebrate the release of his brand new, full-length studio album “Midnight in Gloryland”, Idaho Live and Arts West are presenting David Robert King Live at The Egyptian Theater with special guests James Orr as well as The Songwriters of Arts West on May 19th 2011.

“Midnight in Gloryland” was recorded in Portland, OR with famed producer/engineer Aaron Sternke (Sara Groves, Lystra’s Silence) and mixed by Brandon Eggleston (Josh Ritter, Modest Mouse). The album is a personal journey full of spirituality, passion, frustration, heartache, and even a little joy. “Midnight” marks new ground for King as he steps out a bit from the Bluegrass and Folk that have occupied his time of late, to explore new textures and styles. From the straight forward rocker “Goodnight Molly” to the Sun Studios inspired “Walkin’” to the foreboding “Trouble”, King stands his ground as one of the most talented artists and gifted songwriters in the Northwest.

Joining King on stage at The Egyptian will be Tim Muchira from Seattle on percussion, John Nuhn from Moscow on Bass, Aaron Sternke from Portland on piano, and Rob Kroehler from Phoenix on guitar.
