Kela Parker is a singer, guitarist, pianist and composer whose avant indie sound has been called enigmatic, genre-bending and magical. Perching on the cusp of folk, jazz, rock, and new classical music, Parker explores an emotive and evocative sound world with a unique harmonic sensibility and distinct musical voice.
Parker’s first album in 2011 was noted for its sharp musicianship and breadth of musical styles, spanning stride piano, pastoral folk harmonies, indie rock, and unusual song structures. Her follow-up, “Searching & Sewing” (2013), was described as folk–but folk music from a country you’ve never heard of before.
