Artist History

FeedWind

 


Rick Parnell is a Canadian singer/songwriter who’s walking the road less traveled. Leaving an enviable corporate career to pursue a passion for song, his music sprouts from the very roots of the Folk-Rock tradition and then subtly suggests new directions.  Introspective and captivating, his songs most frequently evoke comparisons to Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and George Harrison. John Lennon and Johnny Cash are influences that also arise when describing Rick's vocal and song writing style ... Complex yet catchy lyrical phrases, solid melodies and impressionistic storytelling.

Rick Parnell releases his latest CD, “Imperfect Beauty,” featuring an excellent collection of Rock/Folk songs. Parnell and his fellow musicians create an album that is brimming with thought provoking lyrics and soulful melodies. The song, “For a Song (feat. Hart Parnell),” has laid back vocals that sing the interesting lyrics with emotive style. “Desire (feat. Hart Parnell),” has a smooth rhythmic groove that also features some great guitar riffs. The track, “One For You (feat. Hart Parnell),” has a Bluesy feel as the mellow vocals are complemented by solid drums and soulful guitar hooks. If you are into the musical likes of Bob Dylan or The Traveling Wilburys, then you will enjoy the terrific songs on the album, “Imperfect Beauty.”

Despite the almost lo-fi, demo-like feel of Rick Parnell’s “One Eye Open” CD, the strong 6-song debut from this Canadian singer-songwriter has a primal immediacy often filtered out of big-budget, major label projects. And that’s good. What Parnell offers are six stripped-down, completely engaging contemporary folk songs featuring his sometimes raspy vocals over the sparest of guitar strumming. In its directness and simple arrangements “One Eye Open” recalls Bon Iver’s breakthrough in ’08 as well as the songs and performances of such troubadours as Richard Buckner or Jeff Buckley. But Parnell is an original, and on tuneful songs like “Everybody’s Wrong” and “I’m Coming Home” his rough-hewn voice is as evocative as the words that spill out in his soulful delivery. “Come Saturday,” has a bit more edge, thanks to a slyly subdued slide accompaniment, but it is no less pleasing, and the last track, “One More Song” offers just the right touch of melancholy to close the CD. Rick Parnell’s “One Eye Open” CD is a cross-generational work that owes a debt to classic singer-songwriter stylists, but is also completely right for contemporary listeners of any generation.
