JP Parsons

Hailed as “Bristol TN/VA’s own troubadour” and a “songwriter’s songwriter,” East Tennessee musician J. P. Parsons has performed over a thousand shows during his 20-plus-year career. His unique blend of folk, bluegrass, and country music, along with his memorable tenor voice, make his songs immediately familiar to listeners’ ears. Since his 2012 debut solo album Appalachian Travels and 2014’s follow-up Until This Day Is Done, which includes his full band The American Bandwagon, Parsons has been received as a regional songwriting sensation throughout the southeast pleasing crowds from large festivals to the tiniest bars and listening rooms.
