Aaron Parks created a stir with his debut in 2008, Invisible Cinema, and Ropadope Records are thrilled to announce the natural successor to that album. Aaron Parks Little Big is a lush, melodic and driving work, blending genre and style in a fluid narrative from start to finish.
The title references the novel by John Crowley, but also informs us that this is a band; Greg Tuohey with a searing tone on guitar, David ‘DJ’ Ginyard on bass, and Tommy Crane on drums. As a unit, they bring Parks’ compositions to perfect expression, moving across the space and time of different styles to reflect the interwoven and complex world we now inhabit. Aaron Parks Little Big is an easy listen at any time, always ready for your attention when you are ready to dig deeper, and it leaves you with a sense of comfort and optimism. October 19 is the date, stay tuned for Pre-order info.
