BIOGRAPHY: MICHAEL LOUIS PARKS
No Refund Records was founded in 2006. The idea came from Charlie Wards Cd, “My Skin Baby” The Album is a work of genius and he put “No Refund Records” down as the music company. When I had to come up with a name for my company at the court house all my ideas were taken. Finally I blurted out “No Refund Records” and the company was formed. Charlie was gracious enough to let me keep the name after the fact and the rest is history!
Michael Louis Parks has been a song writer ever since he heard his first Beatle Song in the Sixties. . Michael currently has one song published by “Nari Records” under Rick Francisco, a former producer for ZZ Top. The song “Written in the Stars” was a co-write with Marge Sampson. (Marge wrote the song “Quitters never Win” for Jonny Lang.) Recording artist, “Becca”, did a fine job singing “Written In the Stars” on her great CD. Michael’s CD, “Southern Dreams”, can be found on cdbaby.com. Holly Adams and Jordon Cody recorded one of Michael’s songs at Gilleys Studio “I’m Lookin at Leavin You”. Michael then put together a compilation CD of his songs, performed by some of the best artist in Nashville, Tennessee. That Album “The MLP-D Project: One More Ghost Rider” reflects the many years he tried with some success to promote his songs. “The MLP-D Project was followed by Michaels “Momma’s Rose” CD, another compilation recorded at Jim Sales Studio in Hendersonville Tennessee. It’s a real gem and sells well in England. At this time Michael has just upgraded his own studio and record label “No Refund Records” with a lot of help from Dennis Gilley. Michael has just produced 4 singles from that effort, a remake of one his favorites “There Goes Geronimo”, “Dream Catcher” “Between The Blue And The Grey” and “You Need Me Now” which is set for release in 2011.
