Biography

He sings. He writes songs. He plays guitar. And 2010 has seen two new recordings — four- and five-song EPs of cool, crisp country tunes, just like him, released in April and September — that are the foundation of a full-length album he plans to release next year.
The Austin-born Texas artist has been writing since the release of his last album, his second, the irreverent and powerful ANYWHERE IN TEXAS, which featured a dozen songs written and co-written by Park, including “Cold in Colorado,” with its killer chorus hook; “Don’t Look ,” which climbed The Texas Music Chart; a co-write with Wade Bowen, “A Woman Like You”; the hard-driving “First Day of Summer”; and the sentimental final cut, “These Days.”

The new FALL EP features five tunes in the same vein, universally melodic with bold yet personal lyrics, story-songs that come from the heart, sung in a pure, pitch-perfect yet understated voice that perfectly suits the songs and is easily identifiable on country radio.

The first single to radio, “All Night,” details how long it might take to heal a broken heart, with or without a new love. Branded by acoustic and steel guitars, the tune lays down a lively beat with a lyric that everyone who’s ever been hurt or sought relief from the pain can get behind.

With Park in the studio were Karl Schwoch (electric guitar), Will Armstrong (drums, percussion) and Eric Lenington (bass), and joining in were half a dozen other players, including Tommy Detamore on steel; John Michael Whitby, one of the record’s assistant producers, on piano and B3; Glenn Fukanaga on bass; and Wes Hightower with harmony vocals — basically the same crew that helped Park make SPRING EP.
