The National Parks was formed by frontman Brady Parks in early 2013 in Provo, Utah. To date, the band has independently released two full-length albums (and a standalone single, “As We Ran”), which together have amassed more than 13.2 million Spotify streams and garnered praise from press outlets such as NPR’s All Songs Considered, CMT Edge, Baeble Music, and Pop Matters. The band’s self-booked touring began in the summer of 2014 and by 2016 the act was filling clubs in every region in the country while also performing at SXSW, Canadian Music Week, School Night at Bardot’s, Musikfest, Snowmass Mammoth Fest, and Make Music Pasadena. The National Parks is currently at work on their third studio album (Places) with the title track set to be released as a lead single in June 2017 via Rock Love Magic Records.
The band continues to be led by Brady Parks (Denver, CO) and saw a number of changes before settling into a dynamic 5-piece group with Brady being re-joined by original member Sydney Macfarlane (Kaysville, UT) as a lead vocalist and John Hancock (Sacramento, CA) on electric guitar, Cam Brannelly (Draper, UT) on drums, and Megan Parks (Draper, UT) on violin.
Brandon Zahursky (RIVVRS) is a singer/songwriter from San Francisco, currently based in Los Angeles.
Influenced by a variety of genres; RIVVRS was formed in 2014 while Brandon was working in the wine industry of Napa Valley. Excited to make music his full time gig, he released a debut single, “I Will Follow You” in early 2014. The song caught the ear of NBC show “About a Boy” and was written into the script of an episode in April of that year, which opened new doors for RIVVRS, including a full time living as a singer/songwriter.
In the 3 years since, RIVVRS has released an EP (Hold On), a full length album (Unfamiliar Skin), as well as a variety of singles. He has had over 40 placements in television and film, and 8+ million streams on Spotify.
RIVVRS has announced a new album for 2017. Co-produced by singer/songwriter Joshua James, ‘Cosmic Dream: Part One’ is set to be released this Fall. RIVVRS recently completed a tour with Joshua James.
