With his tender vocals, sincere lyricism, and excellent musicianship, Texas-native singer-songwriter Parker Twomey is armed and ready to make a name for himself.
Despite Twomey’s young age, he’s already amassed significant experience, as he’s cut his teeth with the help of some other notable names in the scene like Paul Cauthen, Leah Blevins, and Vincent Neil Emerson to name a few. The country singer-songwriter attended the acclaimed Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing & Visual Arts to pursue his talents for music. When he graduated, Twomey joined Cauthen’s band as his guitarist and keyboardist, having traveled across the U.S. and Europe.
“Parker Twomey reminds me of Kris Kristofferson. A man so humble and such a maniac genius,” says Cauthen. “I’m lucky to know Parker. He’s something special. Someone who has his own voice.”
Twomey’s newest single, “I’d Be Your Man,” could best be described as a troubadour’s dream. His voice and lyrics resemble that of Orville Peck, with the track having nostalgic and dreamlike production.
The song begins with a brief synth swell, soon to be dissipate into Twomey’s guitar picking, quickly wrapping his listeners in his entrancing instrumentation. The first line of the song hits like a freight train, with Twomey singing, “If I get higher than the mountains you claim / Would you lend a hand?” He talks about his love for his partner, and how he wishes to be with her no matter what- a sentimental statement that’s relatable to audiences of all kinds.
With his tender and unique writing style and multi-instrumental talent, Twomey’s trajectory will surely take him “higher than the mountains”. He is currently tickling the ivories for Cauthen on his U.S. tour, but keep an eye out for more from this upstart songwriter who is just getting started.
