About the Band:
When Ariel, Sarah, and Rose Parkington of the Parkington Sisters pick up their instruments to strike up a song, the air begins to buzz. The chemistry between the three sisters is so present you feel like you can touch it – and as soon as they strike the first tone, it overwhelms the listener like a tidal wave crashing down.
Hailing from Wellfleet, Massachusetts, the Parkington Sisters cut their teeth on music from the very beginning. Daughters of a prog rock musician and a classically trained guitarist and songwriter, they were raised playing music on picturesque Cape Cod. Over the past 5 years, they have shared the stage with artists ranging from Mavis Staples and Bruce Springsteen to Dispatch and the Dropkick Murphys, performing in radio studios and stages across the US, Canada and Europe, including New York’s Radio City Music Hall and in March 2014 NPR’s Mountain Stage. The Parkingtons also joined the Dropkick Murphy’s to perform the national anthem before Game 6 of the 2013 World Series at Fenway Park, leading to the first World Series home win for the Red Sox since 1918!
The band’s new album Me You Us was produced and engineered by Joel Hamilton (Black Keys, Tom Waits, Pretty Lights), along with the sisters – and was recorded in haunted churches, basements, hotels and living rooms across New England – as well as at the new 5000 sq foot Studio G in Brooklyn. It combines the influence of growing up on Cape Cod and the sisters’ individual talents – each of the sisters is a songwriter and a multi- instrumentalist. With soaring melodies, tumbling from optimistic heights to eerie lows, vibrant harmonies and intricate arrangements, their songwriting incorporates the eclectic songwriting of Joni Mitchell and Aimee Mann, the energy of June Carter and the hit potential of Mumford and Sons. Their music has been premiered by Paste Magazine, American Songwriter, and Magnet Magazine and played on radio stations like Acoustic Cafe, WXPN, KUTX, KCSN, WUMB, and WERS.
