As a singer/songwriter Parsons conjures up the essence of troubadour folk-rock and classic Americana influences, exploring the triumphs and anxieties of the human experience. Also a highly sought after musician, Parsons has worked with some of the cream of Australian talent. With his newly formed live band – Rodeo Pony, featuring Robin Waters (Ella Hooper, The Boat People) on keys, Alex O’Gorman (Big Smoke, Angie McMahon) on bass and Bree Hartley (Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife) on drums, Parson’s new album rides through canyons, weaves across silver oceans and launches into the interstellar.

For Parsons, Sunday Morning Cinema ventures into new territory both musically and in its process. Having worked up the songs with his band prior to entering the studio allowed for an organic and authentic experience. With engineer Fraser Montgomery at the helm, the result is a collection of nine songs, all fully realised and captured in widescreen technicolour.

Recorded live and straight to tape in 3 days, this very welcome follow up to 2015’s Valleywood (nominated for Best Folk Roots Album in The Age Music Victoria Awards 2016) is scheduled for release August 10, 2018 through MGM.

Here Goes Nothin, the first single from Sunday Morning Cinema was released late last year and held the #1 spot on AMRAP’s AIRIT regional chart for two weeks.
