Time to introduce you to another of the bands playing this coming Friday, May 2 at the Rooftop Concert Series . 3 BYU students together make the Indie Provo band The National Parks. Brady Parks from Denver is on guitar, kick drum and vocals. Sydney Carling from Kaysville, Utah has the keyboard , vocals, tambourine and glockenspiel, and Bae Sorenson from Salt Lake City plays violin and vocal harmonies. They say they sound like The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford & Sons.
In September 2013 they released their first album Young and it quickly made it up to #13 on the iTunes singer/songerwriter chart. Can you imagine that much love on your first album? Awesome. They released a new single As We Ran also hit the Top 40 of the singer/songwriter chart. This song was written for the documentary film “Love in the Tetons”, the first film in the National Park Experience: A Film Series, which is about…America’s national parks. I dare you to watch the video and not start singing “Ooo-oo-ooh” along with it.
You can like them on Reverbnation or on Facebook . I love that they shared the Because of Him LDS video on their FB page with all their fans.
Come and watch them perform in Provo on May 2!
