Charlie Parr is an incorruptible outsider who writes novelistic, multi-layered stories that shine a kaleidoscopic light on defiant, unseen characters thriving in the shadows all around us. Parr has a new record with only his name on it, and it isnt shiny and perfect and commercial and catchy. Its him. Its pure Charlie Parr and thats enough. He hasnt moved to LA or Nashville; hes stayed in the cold grey north of Minnesota, because thats his home.
