Sir Parker in Austin!
Above is a little video of the beginning of the maiden voyage that is to be my new side project with my good friend Robert Harrison that we are calling Sir Parker. We wrote a couple songs last winter that we loved but didnt quite fit on my solo record and he had crafted a bunch of wonderful songs that fit with those. Some for us to duet too! So here I am in Austin again at his studio the Star Apple Kingdom laying down some vocals on James the tape machine. Sadly Robert had to sell the Star Apple Kingdom so this will be the last thing recorded here. The first thing recorded here was one of my favorite records, the Big Picture, from his old band Cotton Mather. More details on Sir Parker soon and hopefully once things get a bit more fleshed out we can let ya'll have a listen to these magical songs.
I've been in a phase of listening to others music lately. The new Flaming Lips Embryonic Ep is really inspiring. If you guys have any suggestions on music you're diggin these days that you wanna share please comment here. Hope all is well!
