JEFF PARKER
Go Parker!
Releases Decemeber 2012

Jeff Parker is a bluegrass music stalwart known for his timeless singing and virtuoso mandolin skills. Parker is currently a vital member of The Dailey and Vincent Band, performing over 100 shows per year worldwide. "Go Parker!" is Jeff's first new cd since 2004's "Two Roads to Travel," which garnered tremendous airplay on bluegrass radio stations around the world.

Recorded at The Lonesome Day Recording Studio in Kentucky, "Go Parker!" is a re-dedication of Jeff's recording career featuring an eclectic mix of songs ranging from heartbreak to lighthearted fun. The album takes its name from jubilant audience members yelling his name when he takes the stage each night and features special guests Dailey and Vincent on the tracks "Plant Some Flowers by My Graveside" and "Let's Be Sweethearts Again." In addition, the lovely and talented Cia Cherryholmes duets on "When I Loved You." The collection ends with a cover of Conway Twitty's "Hello Darlin'," which appears on special request from his fans.

Jeff Parker was born in 1961 and began playing guitar at age six. His father (Vester Parker) was a musician at the Renfro Valley Barn Dance. At age 12, Jeff saw his first live performance of the Russell Brothers and was amazed with the mandolin. Harold Russell lent Jeff a mandolin, and he started playing that instrument with his family band, Sounds of Gospel. Jeff's first professional gig was as a fill-in mandolin player for Larry Sparks on a Renfro Valley show. At age 19, Jeff and other friends formed a band called Train 45 that played for a couple of years. At age 25, Jeff was hired as a full time staff musician at Renfro Valley. He worked there until 1994. From 1995-2001, Jeff, his brother Mike, Terry Wolfe, and David Osborne played in the band Wilderness Trail. In 2001, Jeff auditioned with the Lonesome River Band, and he was their mandolin player and singer until joining The Dailey and Vincent band where he has found a happy home since.
