Working with Drummer/Producer Niall Woods [Mute Records, EMI, Sony, Polly Scattergood, Gabby Young and Other Animals, Codes, Koukie Inner City Pirates, BBC, etc] Parsons' is penning songs that have grown from demos written at home to full production numbers ready for an album release.
The pair started working together when they met working on Once the Musical [1 Grammy Award, 8 Tony Awards] in Dublin. Parsons approached Woods hoping to record some ideas at his Porchlight Studios Dublin and it quickly became apparent that both Parsons and Woods shared musical tastes and the recording of initial ideas soon turned into the recording of Parsons' first release, Infamy.
Parsons' sound has been described as a melting pot of Buckley, Muse, Incubus and Radiohead with big drums, big guitars and evocative vocals being the back bone of all of his work. Parsons' is keen to write POP hooks but at the same time, through a strong lyrical narrative, engage the listeners emotional connection to his music.
