The Parson Red Heads
from Portland Oregon
To keep it simple – yes, The Parson Red Heads are originally from Oregon; yes, the band includes family members; yes, they do like The Byrds - and yes, only two of them are actual redheads. Moving on … when The Parson Red Heads debut full length King Giraffe was released last year, they had already earned themselves a solid reputation in their home of Los Angeles that was backed up by successful Monday night residencies at Silver Lake Lounge and The Echo - but since its release, their presence has extended past LA’s city limits. The 60’s loving quintet has been reviewed and featured in Under the Radar, Harp, Death and Taxes, Performer, LA Times, San Francisco Bay Guardian and has had steady play on college radio (KG stayed in the CMJ top 200 for 9 weeks). They further solidified their reign over LA with a Monday night residency at Spaceland this January, and a performance on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. To keep the ball rolling, they will release a six song EP this May called Owl & Timber that highlights both their subtle and sweet acoustic tendencies as well as their consistent need for psyched out jams.
