About Jack Parker

Jack Parker

Over the span of his 20-year career, Jack Parker has taken his life-long journey through the peaks and valleys, and shaped a musical sound reminiscent of a timeless America. For years, Parker has been the ingenious six-string slinger interpreting other people's songs from "stage-right" as a founding member of Tumbledown (along with Mike Herrera of MxPx), and Rocky Point All-Stars (Parker was also a guitarist for the legendary Bremerton punk band MxPx from 2011-2016), but more recently he has taken center-stage to write, sing, and play his own songs that have an air of rambling down the open road, but ultimately a longing for coming home. His roots lie in the heart of the great Pacific Northwest, right next to the shores of Puget Sound.

Parker released his first solo EP entitled Homegrown (also available on Vinyl LP) in 2014. The album opens with the exciting southern-rocker "It's So Good (To Be Back Home)" that mixes the attitude of his Tumbledown twang with his meticulous ear for melody. He sings about loving life on the road, but that coming home is what makes it all worthwhile. On other songs like "I Might Love You," "Gone," and "Put Me Down," he pulls beautifully from his bluegrass and southern rock influences like Tony Rice or The Outlaws, to create a whole new sound all his own. His songs invoke a romantic sense of longing, for overcoming pain caused by life's hardships and failed relationships, coupled with a desire to find true joy.

In 2019 Parker proudly formed "Jack Parker and The Remedy," an exciting, dynamic, electric band that performs songs from Homegrown, as well as some all-new material. He is currently working on a full-length follow-up album to be released sometime in the near future, and has already released two brand new singles, "United We Spiral," and "No Regrets" from the forthcoming new album!
