Every so often here at Infectious Groove Podcast, we come across an artist that just blows us away. Not all that long ago Michelle happened upon a singer/songwriter/musician from Oklahoma, and she knew immediately what she heard, needed to be heard by as many people as possible. Second in line, Russ and he felt exactly the same way she did. Hooked immediately. Kyle comes along, Michelle and Russ both throw a few songs at him, and boom hooked immediately. Fast forward a couple of years and the social media gods somehow made our paths align.
Hailing from Purcell, Oklahoma, Parker Millsap set forth on a mission, and never looked back. Named one of 2014's Emerging Artists of the Year by The Americana Music Association after the release of his eponymous album. Gaining even more attention after being featured on NPR's music program "The Record", Parker kept the ball rolling, by opening for the likes of Jason Isbell, Lake Street Dive, and Old Crow Medicine Show just to name a few. Five studio albums in, headlining his own tours and he still puts on a show like he's trying to get a record deal.
We sat down with Parker to talk about growing up, early influences, getting started, performing, touring, Twitter, and so much more.
