Let Parson James Uplift You In "Sad Song"
Contrastingly enough, Parson James' new single, "Sad Song" will lift you right up. You're sure to recognize this voice from Kygo's smash hit, "Stole The Show," but his solo artistry is a eye-opening experience. There's no doubting Parson's raw talent -- strong vocals and lyricism just come natural. His gospel and pop influences blend together to present his own, signature sound, and isn't that what music is all about? Originality is highly respected, and this single certainly doesn't lack that.
"Sad Song" was inspired by an encounter with his ex at a bar in LA. He told Billboard --
"I don’t know what it is about me but dive bars feel like home, I’m comfortable in them. As he approached me, I immediately felt this flood of mixed emotions wash over me. Memories of unnecessary tears, countless drunken nights alone, etc. Within a few moments of conversation something was glaringly apparent to me. He. had. not. changed. Normally, this would’ve affected me negatively, but this time, surprisingly, I walked away relieved."
