WHO: PARKER MILLSAP
WHAT: ST. LOUIS PERFORMANCE
WHEN: AUGUST 15
WHERE: OFF BROADWAY
Acclaimed singer/songwriter Parker Millsap will perform at Off Broadway on August 15, in support of his latest album, Other Arrangements. The record, which has received praise from American Songwriter, No Depression, Paste Magazine and more, showcases the 25 year-old’s evolution as an artist who continues to create music without the confines of genre. Millsap possesses a rare charisma on stage, and audiences can expect to see both intense and captivating performances throughout his tour.
While his first two albums were praised for their philosophical and religious imagery, Other Arrangements plays more like a favorite rock radio channel from the 70’s. Moving effortlessly between rock, blues and pop, the new record showcases an infectious set of songs, which highlight Millsap’s dynamic vocals and exceptional electric guitar playing. On the album, his thought-provoking songwriting style touches on themes of love, human struggle, passion and tolerance. Rolling Stone Country featured the explosive title track “Fine Line” raving, “the album mixes Millsap’s voice – an otherworldly howl, shot through with equal parts Pentecostal punch and southern swagger – with faster tempos and bursts of electric guitar.”
Since the release of his critically acclaimed album The Very Last Day, Millsap has made television appearances on CONAN, as well as renowned PBS series Austin City Limits and Bluegrass Underground. Other Arrangements was co-produced with Grammy award-winning engineer/producer Gary Paczosa and Grammy award-winning engineer Shani Gandhi at Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, NC and Minutia Studio in Nashville, TN. Along with band-mates Daniel Foulks (fiddle) and Michael Rose (bass), Millsap is joined by Paddy Ryan on drums/percussion and backup singers including Odessa, Shirley and Calvin Settles, and Jillette Johnson.
