Parks is Brian E. King, lead vocals/guitar, Stu Dietz on guitar, Andrew Jones on drums, Rob Johansonon bass, and Robin Melendez on backing vocals.
Described as “a crisp & precise take on garage pop” (Boston Globe), Parks distinguishes itself with dynamic live performances, lush instrumentation, rich three-part harmonies and sonics somewhere between fizzy Shins twists and fiery Strokes-esque turns.
Audiences have noticed: American Songwriter magazine premiered the band’s winter beach party-themed video for “Sweater Weather,” their debut single which recently won the John Lennon Songwriting Competition.
