MEL PARSONS

Parsons hits the road in October, and says

“It’s been a long couple of years for everyone so we’re absolutely fizzing to finally be getting back on stage sharing music with audiences again… I’m so excited about this new record and bringing it to life with the band.”

Following the release of SLOW BURN, Parsons’ is joined by her long-time band on the album with cousin Jed Parsons on drums and backing vocals, Aaron Stewart on bass, and Logan playing guitars, piano and backing vocals. 

Featuring the already released moody and nostalgic single ‘Carry On’; the dark and intense track ‘Already Gone’; and most recently, the mellow and meandering single ‘Slow Burn’, the album is to be one of grit and grace, with Parsons’ dusky vocals consuming the eleven new tracks.
