Hailing from the small town of Purcell, Oklahoma, singer/songwriter Parker Millsap brings a maverick intensity to his brand of Americana.
A youth alternately spent singing hymns at his local Pentecostal church and saturating himself in old blues albums influenced his unique style, which includes folk, country, and vintage, Elvis
-flavored rock & roll. While still in his late teens, Millsap recorded his mostly acoustic debut, Palisade, with childhood friend Michael Rose accompanying him on double bass. Two years later in 2014, his self-titled second LP introduced his signature sound, bringing him national acclaim and leading to support slots with heavy-hitting roots acts like Jason Isbell
, Old Crow Medicine Show
, and Lake Street Dive
. His fiery Southern gothic songcraft was further developed on his third record, The Very Last Day, which arrived in early 2016. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
