Reinvigorated David Archuleta brings new music on the road


Pop singer David Archuleta had his first taste of the spotlight when he appeared on a revamped “Star Search” in 2003, earning the title of Junior Vocal Champion.

Then at 17, Archuleta became a household name after being in the final two of the seventh season of “American Idol” in 2008.

Though he placed second to David Cook, Archuleta has managed to have one of the more successful careers for “Idol” alums.

He’s released six albums, most recently 2013’s “No Matter How Far,” written a memoir called “Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song, and the Power of Perseverance,” and even starred in a TV miniseries in the Philippines.

Archuleta says he’s grateful for all that came from “Idol,” but he felt empty and realized that though he was constantly being told how amazing and loved he was, that praise and love was conditional.

“It’s like, ‘We love you as long as you’re making us money,’ or ‘We love you as long as you’re the hottest thing right now,’ or ‘We love you as long as you’re attention-worthy,’” he says. “You start basing your worth and your identity and who you are on what everyone else thinks of you.”

It was around this time that Archuleta, now 26, began considering stepping away from music to serve a two-year mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Chile, a move many on his team at the time said could mean the end of his career.

It was hard for Archuleta to go against their advice, but he knew the experience, which would require him to focus on others, was exactly what he needed.

“Helping other people, teaching them about God, teaching people how to pray and praying with them, visiting them and being there always for someone else completely filled me,” he says. “I just thought, ‘This was what I needed. This is the secret to life I couldn’t find.’”

After such a fulfilling experience, which he completed in 2014, Archuleta wasn’t sure if he wanted to return to music.

Days before he was scheduled to participate in writing sessions in Nashville, Tenn., Archuleta told his manager he was done.

“I changed for these two years, and now that I’m back, I’m going back into the same routine that I was in before,” he says. “I was like, ‘What am I doing? This doesn’t make sense.’”

Archuleta ultimately decided to attend the writing sessions because they were already scheduled but told his collaborators, who included Joy Williams, Trent Dabbs, Katie Herzig and Jamie Kenney, that he was reconsidering his life and wasn’t sure it included music.

Their suggestion? Write about those feelings.

That simple solution was a breakthrough for Archuleta, who after years of writing about what others wanted him to write about, finally felt he could be himself.

“In that moment I realized I can write about how I’m really feeling and I don’t have to put on a facade and wear a mask while I’m on the stage …,” he says. “That was scary because I’m not used to that. I’m used to showing what the record label and the people I worked with always told me to show.”

The song that came from that session, “Numb,” opens Archuleta’s four-song EP “Orion,” which was released in May.

The song’s first line, “I think I’ll take a second chance,” explains how Archuleta feels about pursuing music again.

“‘Numb’ is about ‘OK, I’m going to take a second chance, but I have to do it differently this time or else I’m going to go back to feeling numb,’” he says. “I decided I’m going to do this, and I always want to lift people up. … Music has to have a purpose now for me, and that’s really motivated me moving forward.”

Archuleta wrote “Orion” as part of a series of three EPs he hopes to release. The next one is scheduled for August, though, if he has his way, it will be out sooner. And with more freedom regarding his own music, he’s also contemplating forgoing the final EP for a full album.

Along with helping him find his voice, the process of writing and recording “Orion” helped Archuleta see that he could keep God close in every aspect of his life instead of separating himself into “stage David Archuleta” and “personal David Archuleta.”

He, sensitively, brings religion into his writing sessions and has conversations with those he’s working with about spirituality. If everyone’s on board, he opens writing sessions with a prayer. To date, no one has said no, and some even ask Archuleta to help them pray.

“It’s been cool to see that I can still be myself in what I’m doing around other people and different walks of life,” he says.

“Before, it was like, ‘Who’s going to win, stage David Archuleta or personal David Archuleta?’ I was saying, ‘OK, I’m going to let the stage one win because that’s the one that people see most.’ It was like, ‘No, I understand who I am now and that I can dare to be me.’ “

  10. Martha says:

    Thanks Joanie – a beautiful post. Shelley’s daughter is so cute! That pic of the 3 of them is the best! Excited for this last date, it just might be the topper! Okay, David, let’s keep it going! Don’t stop now!

  11. GrammyJ says:

    Hawaii sounds great, Kimk! You are a lucky lady. I hope there is enough interest for David on the east coast for all you east coast Archies! Kari has said they are working on it. Building a tour is not easy. I know we all want David to make money so he can keep touring. This June tour had different size venues, small theaters, and outside amphitheaters. It has been a very fun tour even for us that didn’t live close enough to attend. Looks like David loved it!

    • kimk says:

      does look like David does like it.. and that is good!! thanks 2 weeks in Hawaii no complaints.. and it was a gift I have great children!!! 🙂

      oh man I really hope he comes east he is doing things his way kind of not sure how that will be received here

  12. Martha says:

    This is cute. Maybe it’s been posted before. From Troubadour night

  13. bobanna says:

    Howdy. Just saw David’s latest Instagram post where he’s shaving at the end shirtless(of course only his face showing) and imagine he just killed off at least half his fanbase! I nearly choked on the strawberry I was munching on picturing his young female fans hyperventilating! He’s such a hoot!!! LOL Too bad I don’t have Instagram.

    • Martha says:

      On Instagram?

      • bobanna says:

        Hello Martha.It’s the last few seconds of the Instagram post about Brook and HSP. If you check the Instagram post posted on The Voice and watch the end you will see it. It’s cut off here on FOD. It’s also in the comments on SnowAngelz.

    • kimk says:

      ha saw that thing is you didn’t see anything didn’t see any folks flipping out either would imagine they would if lol it wasn’t a head shot.
      folks going on about the young girl kissing David I guess she did ask assuming now that he is what 26 he doesn’t mind if he is ok with whoever it is lol doing it? or in other words ha going to guess it wasn’t his first. guess David is not baby anymore

  14. Moelita says:

    He is a hoot.

  15. Mari says:

    Packing for St.Louis,Mo-leaving tomorrow morning on the Amtrak,excited for Saturday night and hope to see some of you there!😁

    Mari….have fun in St. Louie….Miss Vicki

  24. bobanna says:


  25. Alwaysafan says:

    David wasn’t shaving in his Instagram story, he was saying how he sometimes goes into a room and forgets what he went in there for, this time it was for his razor. Looks like they were having fun bowling today;) I wonder if Jazzy is still with them, haven’t seen her in the latest pics.

  26. Alwaysafan says:

    I don’t think he was shirtless, I don’t know people think he was? Unless they were just speculating for fun, he was looking for his razor to shave he wasn’t shaving in the story.

  27. Alwaysafan says:

    Okay I went and checked it out again, and I admit it does kind of look like he could be, guess I didn’t really notice it before.

  28. sydnie says:


    They have David on their front page, it does rotate but he show up first! I’ll be going with my tour buddies aka nieces, one of them live in Seattle now. 😁

    • sydnie says:

    David IG Story: Hello Denver, Colorado!


  32. kimk says:

    up early this morning hubs off to NJ for a concert/picnic he learned over 40 songs should be a hoot 80’s music for the most part Billy Idol Bruce Lynyrd Skynyrd The Police Tears For Fears etc.. lol even think he learned Red Neck Woman 😆
    his old band is getting together again they played NJ clubs most all the songs were something you could dance to but also some that are just fun popular etc
    will be joining him in a few days after the 4th. I guess it is kind of like a family/high school reunion mix kind of stressed about it working on spiffing up some.
    lol so far so good but dang time does funny stuff.. to your ‘stuff’!
