David Archuleta to perform in Pocatello on Friday

By Courtney Johnson cjohnson@journalnet.com

POCATELLO — Pop star David Archuleta will perform at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre on Friday night.

The gates open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets for Friday’s performance can be purchased at smithstix.com.

Archuleta found his fame at age 16 when he was the runner-up on the seventh season of “American Idol.

Archuleta didn’t always have plans to become a music artist. Throughout his childhood, he wanted to be zookeeper, a dentist and even a social worker. Even though he kept changing his mind, he always knew that he wanted to connect to people in some way.

Obviously, Archuleta didn’t become a zookeeper or a social worker, but he was able to find a special way of interacting with others.

“Music is way to connect with people,” Archuleta said. “I’ve always wanted to connect with people, to tell stories and hear peoples stories, and I get to do that through writing songs.”

Last month, Archuleta released his latest EP, Orion. The Orion EP has four new songs that were inspired by events in his life that left an impression on him.

“This new music is basically written from my journey of the last several years of my life,” Archuleta said. “From becoming an artist and performing on ‘American Idol’ to touring and making albums to then doing a complete 180 turn by going to South America to be a missionary, I have this new perspective on life and I’ve written about it.”

Archuleta plans to release one more EP before he releases a full album later this year. By releasing two EPs, he is able to get a feel for how his fans will react to his new music.

“I want my fans to like the music, but I also want to see how they feel about the story and message,” Archuleta said. “I am trying to get a feel of how people will respond and react.”

When Archuleta isn’t touring and writing music, he admits to sometimes wasting too much time watching videos on YouTube like Studio C. He also loves to find new restaurants on Yelp and try them out with friends and family.

Since his run on “Idol,” Archuleta has released seven of his own albums including an appearance as a guest star on The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s holiday album, “David Archuleta — Glad Christmas Tidings.”

“I seriously love food,” Archuleta said.

Archuleta is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and likes to show his fans all facets of his life from spiritual moments he has throughout the day to which new restaurant he recently tried out.

“My religion helps shape how I live my life and it helps give me so much fulfillment and happiness so I had to learn how to be open about all aspects of my life,” Archuleta said.

At his performance, Archuleta will perform a number of his older songs that fans will know along with some of his newer music. He will also throw in a few cover songs from famous artists throughout the last few decades.

“I want people to feel good when they listen to my music,” Archuleta said. “But I also want them to feel like they can connect to something deeper, like a deeper version of themselves and a deeper part of life. That’s really the purpose of this new music being released.”

David Archueta to Showcase New  Music in Pocatello

By Erin Burke

David Archuleta is coming back to Idaho for a concert, featuring Nathan Pacheco.

They will be performing in Pocatello at the Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre on Friday, June 16 at 8 p.m.

On Wednesday, two days before the concert in Pocatello, he was enjoying his day off by traveling and resting at truck stops. For weeks, he said he has been practicing his songs on a daily basis with very few breaks.

Archuleta’s newest EP, Orion, was released on May 19, according to davidarchuleta.com. He said he plans to perform some well-known songs from his previous projects and old albums, songs from his new EP and a new song which has not been released yet.

“The song I’ll be singing that I haven’t released yet is a preview of what is yet to be released,” Archuleta said.

He said he is releasing his next EP within a month or so, then he is releasing an album later this year.

Archuleta said he wants to come closer to God through his tour, so he likes to start every concert and writing session with a prayer.

“I remember one time a (songwriter said) that with the twenty years (he’s) been in the business, (he’s) never started a writing session with a prayer,” Archuleta said. “He said that was special.”

He then asked the writer if he wanted to say a prayer to end the session. He said the writer said he did not think he knew how to pray. Archuleta said he told him to say what was in his heart.

“He bowed his head, and he just started talking to God and thanking Him,” Archuleta said. “Afterwards, he was like, ‘I have goosebumps.’”

One of Archuleta’s greatest motivations for creating his new music has been the experiences he has had over the past seven years of his life.

Archuleta said, “After coming back from my mission in Chile, I had such a new perspective on everything.”

Orion, in specific, is a showcase of the perspective he has gained over the years.

He said these new songs are full of things he wants people to know. He has hopes that his songs will inspire people to stay strong because there have been times when he has felt not good enough or not known how to move forward.

Archuleta said he thinks those at BYU-Idaho may feel like they are not good enough and that his songs from Orion will help students to remember their worth. Sometimes students feel pressured to be perfect and that they cannot show any weakness because Christ said to be perfect.

“Christ said to be whole, to be complete,” Archuleta said. “He didn’t say that you can’t be flawed.”

Archuleta said he is coming to Pocatello because he has been there before and enjoyed connecting with audience members of the southeastern Idaho region.

“I want people to leave feeling better and lighter—feeling better about themselves and feeling motivated to keep moving forward in life,” Archuleta said.

Archuleta’s first single “Crush,” debuted at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the week the singe released. Archuleta’s first album, “David Archuleta,” went gold, and sold more than 750,000 copies in the U.S. and more than 900,000 copies worldwide.

New Orion EP in May, West Coast Tour Kicks Off in June! ~ David Archuleta

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, April 4, 2017

credit: davidarchuleta.com

From David’s Official Site:

“Platinum-selling singer David Archuleta is gearing up for the May 19th release of Orion, the first in a series of new EPs from the international pop star.

Inspired by lessons learned during his two-year missionary trip to Chile, “Numb” — the EP’s lead single, which premiered last November via Billboard — sets the tone for Orion’s mix of self-reflection and pop melody. The song was co-written by Archuleta, Trent Dabbs, and producer Jamie Kenney. “People really want to connect with what’s coming from someone’s heart, from their soul, and what they’re going through,” he tells Billboard. “I feel like [“Numb”] was that for me.”
Archuleta and Kenney teamed up for Orion’s follow-up single, too, co-writing “Up All Night” with Isabeau Miller and Shaun Balin. The song makes its debut on April 21st, roughly one month before the EP’s release.

Archuleta will support Orion’s arrival with a tour of the west coast and southwestern markets, kicking off with his June 1st appearance at the State Theatre in Red Bluff, California. A full list of performance dates is below.

Orion unveils Archuleta’s new sound, mixing his melodies and muscular vocals with stories about his life and recent experiences. It’s not his first album as an adult, but it may be his first truly adult album. Like the constellation that gives the EP its name, Orion burns brightly.
David’s West Coast Tour Dates are below (more to come!):

Thursday, June 1 — Red Bluff, CA – State Theatre
Friday, June 2 — Fresno, CA – Tower Theatre
Saturday, June 3 — Grants Pass, OR – Rogue Theater
Tuesday, June 6, 2017 — Bend, OR -Tower Theatre

 You’re out of luck if you still want tickets to tonight’s show. It’s Sold-Out! Being a long-time fan, it’s not surprising that most, if not all of the shows on this tour are sold-out, given the incomparable Christmas Show David gives to his audience.  The last Christmas show I went to was at Westbury right before David’s mission. I remember that “What just happened?” feeling we all experienced when the show was over. Euphoria for sure.

Safe travels and the best time to all going tonight. Thanking you in advance for any pictures, videos, tweets and IGs you can share.

From the Tuacahn website:

“The Tuacahn Amphitheater is a 1920-seat open-air amphitheater…The rear of the stage is open to expose the desertscape and red rock cliffs behind the stage which contains lighting, sound, pyrotechnical, and water effects installations. The area behind the stage is a mixture of natural stone and naturally colored concrete. This concrete riverbed was installed during initial construction to facilitate a massive 55,000 gallon flood of water that comes from the back of the canyon and across the stage toward the audience. Though conceptualized and custom-built for the “Utah!” production, this special effect and other water effects have been featured in numerous productions at Tuacahn.”

Djafan, Dayzee and Jenny and all other fans going: Hope you arrive safely!  It’s 55 and sunny in St. George, according to my Weather Ap. Enjoy yourselves. Wish we all could join you!

And look what we have here! The lyric video for “Numb”, already with close to 2.500 views in a matter of minutes!

Three concerts and the release of “Numb” all in one week! Can we collectively scream “Yayyyyy!” Haha Been waiting for something, anything new from David. Hearing his voice on new material is like unwrapping a big box of chocolates. Warm, exciting and delicious.

Amazon is offering David’s single “Numb” as a pre-order purchase on November 4th. Have you heard the snippet yet?  His voice is so crisp and beautiful and is it just me or do I detect a little Southern accent like a Nashville influence in his voice?

Amazon link to pre-order and listen to snippet:   HERE!

Product Details

Rhiminee captured the lyrics to “Numb” below. Thanks Rhiminee!

I think I’ll take a second chance
I won’t be passing by these waters again
Wanna feel redemption’s hand
See this life only for what it, what it is
I know the river’s not too wide
I can see it for myself with my own eyes
Someone out there’s on my side
It’s not my place to question why

CHORUS
Everybody needs time away
To wake up with the sun on their face
I’m not there yet but i know
That I don’t wanna feel numb
Falling over all of my shadows
Yeah I’m all done
Cuz none of that ever really mattered
It hurts to live so wide awake, oh
But it’s a chance I can take
I won’t run run run

Cuz I don’t wanna feel numb

So deep inside these hills I run
To a place where I can see til Kingdom Come
See the days one by one
And love this life only for what it, what it is
I hear the whispers in the stars
The words that tell us more of who we are
Someone out there’s not that far
Everything I need is here now

REPEAT CHORUS

Yeahhhh

A time away brought to life
Rushing over every doubt of mine
Open soul open sky
Everything, everything is right
I don’t wanna feel numb
Falling over all of my shadows
Yeah I’m all done
Cuz none of that ever really mattered
It hurts to live so wide awake, oh
But it’s a chance I can take
I won’t run run run (x2)

I don’t wanna feel numb (x3)
