Charlie Parr has released the second single from his forthcoming full-length Dog to be released September 8 on Red House Records. American Songwriter premiered “I Ain’t Dead Yet,” noting his“furiously picked acoustic slide guitar.” The song is Charlie’s tribute to Dock Boggs, as he explained, “He played a song called ‘Roses While I’m Living’ which expressed the same sentiment. We’re here now, we have time to appreciate one another now rather than memorialize them when they’re gone.” Read more

To many, Parr is considered a regional artist, which is another way of saying he doesn’t like to travel far from his family’s Depression era roots. “From Cleveland to Seattle and down to San Francisco and back is my area,” he says, though the focus is unquestionably Minnesota and the Northern Plains. Yet he’s built a big enough audience in both Ireland and Australia to tour both regularly. He’s had especially good fortune Down Under, where his “1922 Blues” was used as the counter intuitive music behind a Vodafone mobile commercial and became a viral and radio success.
