Hometown: Springfield, IL (USA)


PARK is from Springfield, Illinois. They were around the local scene for a while and the national scene for four years, people are happy with them. This current incarnation is the fourth major version of PARK, sort of like Park 4.0. PARK plays music to save themselves; their drive is to escape a growing divide between the holders of love and the givers of love. PARK is a modern rock interpreter for lost souls. They give shape in a gray world.

The music of PARK is large but the songs remain humble, natural tunes crafted as if from the variety of nature in Mid-West America. The lyrics of PARK reflect prisms of secret thoughts, they state the hidden world with grace. Hard, soft, colorful, plain - each tune true to itself. Songs they play refuse to leave the head long after PARK is gone, they are riffy without being hooky.
