Parker Louis – rise
Columbus, Ohio based artist Parker Louis is one of those artists whose music speaks for itself. There’s grit, authenticity and oodles of funk in ‘All Good Things, Pt. One’ and ‘All Good Things, Pt. Two’, his two stellar EPs which dropped back in 2018. Backed up by a superb band comprised of Aaron White (Keys), Leron White (Bass), Jordan Lewis (Drums), Che Guy (Vocals), Deja Chandler (Vocals) and Christopher Noble (Vocals), Parker Louis create striking soundscapes packed with groove and soul.
That’s exactly the case with ‘Rise’, a brand new song which the band are showcasing at COLORS for the first time. The empowering song sees Louis open with the lines “I will rise” and from that point on, you can’t help but feel elevated and enlightened as those lush guitar melodies carried by a thumping beat and heavenly harmonies wash over you. If ever you needed a song or performance to cheer you up, this is the one – see for yourself and groove along to ‘Rise’ above.
