Portland-based singer/songwriter, Brad Parsons, is set to release his debut solo EP, "Anywhere the River Runs", in June 2012.

About this project

After three years of playing and touring with my band, The Bellboys, we decided to part ways in the summer of 2011. I chose to pursue a different musical path, and it was at that point when I began working on recording my first solo album. In the fall of 2011, I started the recording process with Tyler Thompson of Fruition String Band. Since then, I have continued to refine and record select songs I have been working on for years. I am finishing the recording process in Seattle with Matt Stegner at Blackout Studios this month. The release of my debut solo album, a six-track EP titled Anywhere the River Runs, is set to release in June 2012.

I am launching this Kickstarter to help raise $3000 for the release of this album. Your contribution will go toward the cost of recording, mixing, and mastering, as well as for the production of the discs.

This project is very important to me, and I appreciate any help you can give. The release of Anywhere the River Runs will then help to launch a summer 2012 tour throughout the Northwest. Any additional funds over the goal amount will assist in tour costs, as well as go toward funding for my full-length album. With your love and support, I hope to make this my best work yet.

Thank you all so very much!
