Millsap readies soph effort

Wednesday, January 6, 2016 – Oklahoma born singer/songwriter Parker Millsap will release "The Very Last Day" on March 25 via Okrahoma Records/Thirty Tigers.

Millsap's sophomore release follows 2014's well-received self-titled debut. He toured heavily behind that disc.

Millsap co-produced "The Very Last Day" with Grammy Award-winning engineer Gary Paczosa (John Prine/Alison Krauss/Dolly Parton) and recorded it at Dockside Studio in Maurice, La. Along with bandmates fiddle player Daniel Foulks, bassist Michael Rose and drummer Paddy Ryan, the album features a bigger and lusher sound than his debut, incorporating percussion, piano and Millsap on electric guitar. Guest vocalists Sarah Jarosz, Sara Watkins and Aoife O'Donovan sing on "Heaven Sent."
