Parker Millsap

Folk,Blues

This Oklahoman's arresting, unearthly voice earned him raves for his self-titled 2014 debut album from NPR, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and others, as well as a nomination for Americana Emerging Artist of the Year. He's back in 2016 with "The Very Last Day" (Okrahoma Records/Thirty Tigers), an album rooted in gospel-tinged rock'n'roll poetry and storytelling. Whether he's singing from the perspective of a young gay man longing for his evangelical father's acceptance, or as the King of the Underworld wild with passion, his character-driven songs mine deep wells of joy and despair.
