Last month I had the opportunity to check out up and coming Oklahoma based songwriter, Parker Millsap. He played in my hometown nonetheless. Parker’s debut album on Thirty Tigers is one of my favorite records of the year so far, so I was very excited to get to see him live. Parker was kind enough to sit down with me prior to the show and record this podcast where we talk about playing in bars in Oklahoma at a young age, getting the opportunity to play at the Ryman and many other things.
I’d like to take a second to mention The Covered Bridge Music Series in Lancaster, Ohio. Spearheaded by Steven Wells and the folks from Ohio University Lancaster and the Lancaster Festival, they are working very hard to bring talented songwriters in to play in our community. This is a task and goal, I myself have been trying to do and promote for years and it is great that this organization is highlighting some great musicians. This show was actually held as a fundraiser for the concert series in a downtown bank. The atmosphere and the sound was amazing, it was extremely well done and it was great to see so many people out to help support such a fantastic cause.
