Parallels is an instrumental quartet led by guitarist, Dan DiResta. Having transplanted to Portland several years ago, Dan's pursuit of music is influenced by the city's vibrant music scene, his musical family and upbringing of bluegrass, jazz and blues. Together with his accomplished bandmates, Parallels plays a combination of original music and covers from around the world.
Paralles includes drummer Jesse Brooke, keyboardist Steve Aman and bassist Anthony Wagner. In 2011, they recorded their first EP titled "Two Months A Year."
