Merging Ethan’s Tennessee folk turned Florida surfer upbringing and the jazzy beach vibes of the band’s roots in the Caribbean, with original songs Ethan Parker Band brings a refreshing new sound and style.
Born and raised in Memphis, Ethan was immersed in Blues and Folk traditions before moving to Florida where the acoustic air of the guitar and ukulele deeply influenced his music. Writing music at the age of 15 he went on to study music at Palm Beach Atlantic University hoping to get his journal full of music out there. While at his first week of school he met Jeanmarc Alexandre (drums) who introduced Ethan to Pierre Aristil (bass) who was also the recording engineer and helped Ethan with the first project entitled, "Be Still". After recording the E.P. Pierre naturally became apart of the band. Amos Pierre (Keys) joined as well as Brinton Lindsey (guitar). Each with a wide range training from classical to jazz and a rhythm that only comes from the Caribbean, the band has come together to create an exciting new sound.
In January of 2013 the band released, "Calma Mi Alma" which were the same 5 songs off of the first EP but translated into spanish and the band toured Nicaragua for its release.
Their newest project, From The Mountains To The Sea" was written and recorded in the mountains of North Carolina and Palm Beach, Florida- the environments in which they were inspired. The first half of the album, “From the Mountains” was released in March 2014 with the second, “To The Sea” coming this Fall.
