Singer-songwriter, one-man band and independent artist, Brice Parker releases a new EP titled “Sticks & Stones” his versatile EP speaks volumes for the emerging musician whose music is fueled by authentic passion for music, unapologetic self-expression and pure songwriting talent.
“Sticks & Stones” displays the sounds of 90s alternative rock and pop, bringing a nostalgic essence as he unfolds and reflects on the not-so-typical story of a broken heart. “Sticks & Stones” was born out of a dead relationship and a desire to grow as an artist. My previous two works, “Small Dreams” and “one,” were written, performed and produced by me. Coming out of my latest relationship, I felt I wanted to collaborate with an amazing producer to bring my sound to the next level. Rob Tavaglione of Catalyst Recordings in Charlotte, NC helped me get there. I wrote the songs “Rare”, “What I Do Know”, and “Gone” and recorded demo versions of them for Rob (“Tell Me” was already on my 1st EP “Small Dreams”). Rob and I stripped down each song to the themes and melodies. “Rare” is an explosion of sound about my frustration with the aftermath of a relationship. “What I Do Know” is a drum and synth-heavy sarcastic critique of my inability to find long lasting relationships. “Gone” is a distorted guitar-driven anthem about my fatigue with dating and relationships. “Tell Me” is the first song I ever wrote and is completely reimagined on this EP. “Tell Me” ends the EP with a confident outlook on facing the challenges (or “the city of blinding lights”) in my life. Once we stripped down the songs to the vocal performances, we built them back up piece by piece and I couldn’t be happier with the results. These songs are very special and personal to me, and I cannot thank Rob enough for helping me achieve the sound that I want.” - Brice Parker
