Biography

“There are some people who are just born that way…” her big blue eyes sparkle as she laughs and tucks a stray piece back into her messy curls and continues on about how songwriting (and inevitably being a little scattered) is something she was born into. Meet Parker Welling. She is one of the proud few, a Nashville-native and the lifeblood of the dream that her father never got to realize. Anyone who knows her would tell you how undeniable it is that she has a passion for stories—when she isn’t getting lost in an Emmylou Harris or Willie Nelson song and her nose isn’t in a book, she is asking a genuine and probing questions while lending an ear to anyone who will share, and telling her story to anyone who will listen. Her passion for talking about good old-fashioned life experience is showcased through the happy memories of feel-good summer love in “Firecrackers and Matches” and the emotive and honest heartache of that secret hidden in the darkest corner of the heart in “Devil.” Her songs are like a good conversation with the girl next door over your grandmother’s home cooking—fresh and accessible to anyone’s taste, with hint of that organic, rootsy flavor and a dash of that home-grown twang, all laced with the empathy, understanding, and wisdom in Parker’s uniquely sweet voice
