Parachute: Going Strong & Young

Fans in nearly forty cities across the US will see Parachute on “The Young Tour,” which began back in April and will run through the end of June. They stopped in Seattle last week at The Neptune and had fans dancing and signing along to old favorites and new songs from their latest self titled album, which just dropped last month.

Having seen the band perform acoustic sets, solo performances, and full band sets over the past ten years, I’ve noticed that the guys (Will Anderson, Kit French, and Johnny Stubblefield), never seem to waver. They give it all they’ve got, and always rewarding fans who continue to support them with stellar stage performances. Their song repertoire continues to grow with catchy songs that feature lyrics of love and relationships that thrive (and sometimes falter) through emotions of strength, compassion, growth, acceptance, and hope. Their beats are catchy and relatable for many fans who continue to flock to shows. When not on tour, they are known to interact with their fans through contests, Q & A based social media postings, and live feeds showcasing one-of-a-kind performances from various locations. Before leaving the stage, Will announced they’d be back in Seattle again this fall; however, no tour has been announced… yet.
