Bio

Born on a blue moon in the Californian desert, it is becoming clear that Parisa’s journey was meant to be strange, indeed. Beginning at the age of eight, Parisa made her way through the musical genres, beginning with opera and slowly digressing until rock ‘n roll did to her as it does to so many. Her songwriting began at thirteen and has continued since, developing with her character, her travels, her readings, and her revelations.

Parisa is continuously inspired by a staple crop of musicians who greatly impacted music far beyond her time. Her soul sisters include a plethora of strong women such as Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, Nina Simone, Vera Hall, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, and most recently, Laura Marling. Girl power, however, will never allow her to discriminate toward the main men in her life, including Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, and The Beatles.

Parisa’s most recent EP, The Poinciana, was written entirely in New York City. Whereas her previous EP examines the internal interaction with the soul, The Poinciana narrates her external interactions with the beautiful strangers of her urban nest. Reminiscent of Joni Mitchell folk, songs such as “Lovers on Deck” and “A Man of Science” vocally fluctuate from high to low unexpectedly, while her lyrics set the rhythm and rhyme. However, Parisa stays true to her blues/pop niche with the ballads, “Veins” and “A Mountain Song.”

While playing live in New York City, Parisa is recording a new album that is set to be released in Winter 2014.
