Butch Parnell
Butch Parnell
Dave Parnell, under the moniker Butch Parnell , is a singer-songwriter living in Brooklyn, NY after relocating to pursue a career in music from his hometown in rural North Carolina. Flying to Springfield, MO in 2007 to record his debut album The Arc , under the name Runaway Dorothy , Parnell received rave reviews and grabbed the attention of musical royalty such as the Counting Crow’s Adam Duritz and Rosanne Cash . The next few years saw Parnell touring in support of the album and playing festivals like SXSW and CMJ multiple times. In 2014, after signing a one-album deal with Rock Ridge Music, Parnell released the second Runaway Dorothy album, The Wait . In 2015 Parnell quietly again starting writing and recording songs, unsure if there would be another ‘Runaway Dorothy’ album, he decided that he was just going to release his new music using his father’s name Butch Parnell. With Dorothy being his mother’s name, Parnell thought it was only fair to pay homage to his father with his new moniker.

Big Brutus
Big Brutus
Big Brutus is the musical project of singer-songwriter and guitarist, Sean Bryant. Ranging from earnest and heartfelt to abrasive and jarring, Big Brutus writes songs that challenge the listener to dig a little deeper. His first release, Tiny Box, came in March of 2016 and followed the timeline of a relationship from the innocent beginning to the bitter end. The Odd Willow arrived in early 2017 and assumed a contemplative tone, exploring elements of mortality, aging, sickness, love, and loss.

Following this release, Sean embarked on a bicycle tour up the East Coast, raising money for the International Rescue Committee and talking with as many folks as he could.He used this journey to try to re-connect with fellow Americans in a very divided time. His revelations on the trip poured out into what has become his newest work, America Circa. The album strays from those familiar themes found on his previous albums - themes of love, loss, death, and the pursuit of fulfillment - and, instead, calls out and dives into the racism, oppression, and political corruption rampant in America today. Big Brutus has written an important, self-aware album about what it means to live and lose in this country, and calls the listener to address centuries of abuse.
