From The Idaho State Journal

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.

David Archuleta ~ New Single “Up All Night” Available “NOW” on all Digital Formats! Up All Night Buzz all around!

Posted by djafan on Thursday, April 20, 2017

David Posted an official audio youtube with the lyrics!

***LYRICS***

I am knocking standing at your door
Somewhere new I’ve never been before
Take me in and it feels like home
It’s getting late and I don’t want to go

Something simple in the way this feels
Like love is something pure and real
It’s getting late and I have to leave
But tonight your memory is holding me

I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
Pictures that cross my mind

They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
Keeping me up all night

See my heart and there’s an answered prayer
Feel the magic in the midnight air
Breathe it in I want to pass it on
The strength of finding somewhere you belong

I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
Pictures that cross my mind

They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
Keeping me up all night

Here so small but I am safe and sound
Where I stand it feels like solid ground
No where else that I’d rather be
No greater gift than what you’ve given me

All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
All these feelings inside
I’m wide awake with
All these feelings inside
Keeping me up all night
Pictures that cross my mind

They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
They’re keeping me up all night
Keeping me up all night

Ohhh
They’re keeping me up all night, keeping me up all night

David Archuleta shares his jamming session to snippet of Up All Night!  I confess, I was driving and had to pull over 🙂

David Archuleta gave People Magazine an interview.

David Archuleta has new music out!

The American Idol alum, 26, premiered his latest song, “Up All Night,” on Tuesday, one month ahead of the release of his new EP, Orion.

“‘Up All Night’ came from when I was having a really rough month trying to see how I could make a statement and prove myself and was getting nowhere,” Archuleta shares with PEOPLE.

The singer retreated into nature for some songwriting inspiration.

“A family living in rural Tennessee invited me over to go fishing at their pond. None of the kids even had smartphones at the time. They took me in and when I got home I realized I felt whole again,” Archuleta reveals. “I was so confused with what happened that I couldn’t sleep. I had to get out what I was feeling so I went to the keyboard and recorded the verse and chorus with some lyrics that night.”

Archuleta’s retrospective lyrics represent the mix of self-reflection and pop melodies that fans can look forward to hearing on his new EP.

Orion is the first in a series of EP’s that I have been working on since returning from a two year mission in Chile,” he tells PEOPLE. “I’ve co-written all of the songs, and they they tell the journey of where I have been and where I am heading.”

 “Up All Night” follows-up the EP’s lead single, “Numb,” which premiered last November. Earlier this month, Archuleta debuted the artwork for Orion on social media, also sharing that the album would be available on May 19.

Isabeau Miller shares about Up All Night!

 isabeaumiller There are no words to say how exciting it is to watch people around the world react to art you helped bring into the world. Thank you, @davidarchie for the honor of allowing us to help tell your story and heart. @jskenney for taking the bones of the song and making it epic. And of course my love @shaunbalin for being the one who brings all inspiration to life. #upallnight #davidarchuleta #twoinc#jamiekenney #newmusicfriday

And some background on the writing of Up All Night!

And then there’s David Archuleta. I remember the first time we met, he’d come from church, and a wonderful friend of ours, who we’d written with a few times said she’d met him at church and had invited him to write with us. “Sure,” I thought, knowing how Nashville is, and that David would almost definitely be a no-show. But he showed. And we wrote. At first, it was awkward and clunky- like any first date might be (writing date that is)- and before we knew it, we had a verse and chorus. And I looked in his eyes. “You hate this, don’t you?” I said to the near stranger, who was quiet, even when he sang, even though he was a pop star around the world. He looked at me wide eyed, not wanting to say he did, but I knew he did. “We’re throwing it out.” I said. And we did. We started a new song. We finished the new song. And it was good. At the end of the day, he asked me how I knew, and I said, “I just watched you. I just tried to see what you were feeling.” I think that was the day that cemented our friendship, and songs just followed, because, when your friends with a lot on your hearts, and you create, it feels like it’s a disservice to your calling to not allow the songs in. But every time we wrote with David, I wondered if he felt what I hoped he’d felt: Heard. I never felt like it was my job to write with David, because, remember- I’m not “enough” or anything- certainly not a writer- to qualify as one. I felt it was my job to facilitate his ability to write. One of the songs we wrote is being released- tomorrow- as a single from his EP, and people are hearing it. I’ve watched on Twitter as people quote lines that fell out of my mouth, or David’s heart, or Shaun’s playing, and I think “Oh my God…this is the power of art.” But I’m not writer enough for this… I’m not writer enough to get a publishing deal in Nashville, and if I’m not writer enough for that, I’m not writer enough for this…  Read here!

So much stuff!  I love love Up All Night and so does everyone I have shared it with!  And to top it all off David graces us with a facebook live vlog!!!!  19 wonderful minutes 🙂

By Jenny, David Archuleta’s Fan By Accident

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, June 28, 2016

david32credit: Manny Quintero

He embodied everything that I felt I was missing or have lost: youth, beauty, vitality, charm, talent, genuineness, quiet confidence.

His beautiful singing enveloped the whole amphitheater surrounded by red rocks in the cold November evening. There he was on stage, confidently alternating playful, folksy banter with the audience and singing filled with youthful passion, yearning, energy, playfulness, tenderness, and compassion. His voice had transformed from the angelic, pure sound of his teenage years into a warmer, deeper, sensual sound of a young man at the peak of his life.

I became his fan by accident. When IOS 8 song recognition feature first came out, it kept recommending David Archuleta’s songs no matter what I sang to Siri. (I don’t sound anything like him and I am a terrible singer.) After being annoyed initially, I gave in and listened to his rendition of “Silent Night”.

credit: Aryani Romero

From the first note, I was struck by the beauty of his voice. His tone was like the most intimate, tender whisper, prolonged. Each phrase was infused with tenderness. So many nuances of gentle crescendo, heart-wrenching surge, perfectly-controlled decrescendo and phrase endings that sounded like caresses. Each verse sounded more intense and the part that hit me like a sledgehammer came after the stirring orchestral modulation up to E Major. His rendition of the third verse there sounded like his entire heart just tore open with unbearable feeling of love and adoration. I suddenly felt a surge of endorphins in my brain like the time I indulged in dessert wine and chocolate together. Only it was much more powerful and I felt my throat and chest feel tighter with overwhelming emotions. I felt tears welling in my eyes. It was as if a gate had opened and all the emotions I had suppressed, didn’t feel entitled to, flowed out at once. I also yearned for what I think he was feeling – heart filled with awe, love and devotion. I listened to that recording all day long, then listened to anything I could find on YouTube of his singing.

I was obsessed.

I found out about his concerts in Utah from his equally obsessed Twitter fans. I had created a Twitter account just to follow my new idol.

Concert in St. George! Beautiful outdoor venue. I plotted my getaway. Stop at Vegas, stay at spa resort near the amphitheater, visit Zion. I pleaded with my husband and being the kind-hearted person he is, he said, “You totally deserve it.”

There I was at the amphitheater, bundled up, soaking up everything that this young man put out on stage. He closed his eyes often when he was expressing strong emotions and he danced adorably around the stage during the more upbeat songs. I was surprised that the object of my obsession looked so young.

His quick eyes, when he had them opened, scanned the audience and seemed to take in everything. They expressed fleeting moments of amusement, minor irritation at times, alarm, brief, icy look perhaps at people looking a little too intensely at him. I don’t think he is quite the clumsy, innocent nerd he portrays himself to be. Very serious, thoughtful and disciplined maybe.

What was I doing there? What did I want from him? All I know is that I was not thinking about any of my problems during the concerts. I was enchanted and bewitched by the beautiful sounds coming from this beautiful young man, David Archuleta.

Jan’s recaps: 3 David Archuleta concerts in 4 days!

Posted by bebereader on Sunday, April 3, 2016

CeduXxkWQAAuxGtcredit: Shelley
Richfield
     “There he is!”  I was checking my phone for any David news as we were going into Richfield.  “He’s on the same highway that we are on, Dayzee!”  Sure enough after winding around a few roads, there were the same signs that were in David’s Instagram!  We are here!  Later there was more excitement to see him walk out on that stage with his big smile and waving.  Oh, the yelling, clapping, standing ovations; he had them all!
 
Like I’ve said, the whole world needs to hear that voice. It’s just something special to see him live…he has that “light”.  Got to meet up with Shawna and Patty again.  Hadn’t seen them since Motab. The big surprise was when Nathan came out and sang “The Prayer” with David.
credit: 8throwcenter
 OMGosh, I never, ever thought I would get to see that live.  At the end, David had a little girl come on stage while he sang “Glorious”.  
jan1credit: Jan
When leaving, I saw a bottle on stage and went down and got it with the help of a stage hand.  Thought I had a David bottle, but when I watched the video of them singing “The Prayer”, it shows Nathan taking a drink and sitting the bottle right down where I picked it up…so…it was Nathan’s water bottle and not David’s!  😉  well, he’s second best!  LOL
 
On to Queen’s Creek – 1st concert
     There was an early dinner at Olive Garden before the concert where we met up with Kalei and her bunch.  It was Linda’s birthday and she was surprised to find out that she was going to meet David in person!  Awesome!
 
Dayzee’s and my seats were apart and I got to sit between some “fuddy duddies”!  *~X( at wits' end  No arm swinging with lighted cameras, no singing and swaying!  They might not have been in the swing of things, but it didn’t stop me!  haha.  The 3 on my right left when David left the stage.
 
What?  no encore??  How can anyone leave with David on fire!!!  But of course there was one!  It left me on a high all night!  He was so good!
 IMG_0095 credit: Jan
Queen’s Creek – 2nd concert
     Gwen couldn’t make it, so Dayzee sat in her seat and Dayzee’s seat went to Victoria!  I sat next to SuzyQ and it was good to see her again.  Got to meet Pat and Sweetonda, Tawna and hubby, DJAfan and more.
 
After hearing “7 Years” live 3 times in a row, I give in!  David puts his all in that song, he is incredible! There is nothing like David feeding off the electric frenzy of the fans.  I felt like a teenager again!  It is with love that I listened to his little speeches before his songs that gives messages on him staying in music.  Don’t ever quit singing David!
 
 It was the night before Easter and I was hoping David would sing something special and he did!  It was beautiful.

 It was so new to him he read the words from his phone and sang it perfectly.  Feeling it in his heart, he was breaking down at the end as we all were.  Thank you David, you never let us down!

 What a joyous trip! It wouldn’t have happened without the super nice Dayzee doing all the driving!   😀
