"CLAY PARKER"

Parker's warm, back porch vocals and meditative melodies nearly stop time, transporting listeners to the place of Parker's choosing, with his snappy, at times, acidic tales, tender finger-picking guitar and gusts of harmonica acting as honorable guides. - American Thrift Media


"CLAY PARKER: THE WIND & THE WARBLE"

People probably like to buy Clay Parker a free round... With simple acoustic arrangements and 10 tender songs bathed in shimmering dollops of slide guitar, this boldly stripped-down record hails the arrival of a powerful new voice for Louisiana’s country and folk scene. - 225 Magazine


"A CHORD LEFT OF THE SONG"

His songs are patient, much like his manner of speaking: no line comes too fast, and no image changes too soon... - DIG Magazine

Bio

Old House Records is proud to present The Wind & The Warble, the debut release from Clay Parker. With this offering, Parker has firmly planted himself in the American Folk tradition once prevalent in those same South Louisiana communities that he calls home.
Musically, this batch of songs shares themes of love and loneliness with a healthy dose of humor and tragedy to boot. Recorded straight to tape in the winter of 2011, each song captures a spirit of honest performance and raw live energy rendering a recording that has an un-fussed over, genuine appeal. From blues to ballads, Parker represents his craft well.
For the past few years, Clay has enjoyed regional success with like minded troubadours The Moss Pickers all while building interest for his own songwriting and musical offerings. Parker has become a frequent performer in the steadily growing Baton Rouge singer / songwriter scene and continues to play regularly throughout the Southern region.
