Reviews on upcoming new release titled: "Demons"
"Rating - 10 out of 10
I love the instrumental. The song itself has a very catchy tune and I can imagine myself listening to it again. I caught myself dancing while listening although I don't listen to this genre often, I did really enjoy the song. I like the low vocals on the tune it was well put together!"

I love the acoustics in the beginning. The guitar is subtle. The vocals are deep and the lyrics are dark. I absolutely love this song! I would hear this song on the radio and buy it. Oooh an edgy feel to the song and the beat is spooky and makes you feel like you're in a trance. The beat is catchy and the different instruments is amazing! Ooh the Egyptian music weaved into the song! I absolutely love this so much!"

Welcome to Mike Parr Music!
Lately I have been writing short songs for companies to use as their background sound for their web videos, basically jingle writing. Now that I have my recording studio setup I can now also improve my sound engineer and production skills to help me when writing songs. I have been recording a lot of ideas and sounds then creating full songs from the ones I like. For example, in the last year I wrote over 50 jingles for businesses and of those pieces of songs, I took the sounds that caught my attention most and used that as a starting point for writing this latest album. It worked well for me as the album flowed pretty quickly.

The new album is mixed! Next step is mastering house then off to print for CD's. Once we have received copies of the CD we will be sending songs to specific radio stations in the Mid-Atlantic area. The reason we are only sending to this area for now is this will be our touring area. I know CD's are pretty much outdated but people do like to buy at shows along with band merchandise. And radio stations still request CD's for airplay consideration. We also have created an area on our website for radio stations to hear our music. Actually anyone can listen to the entire album on this site and that way know if you like it before you download a song or multiple songs from your favorite service, like iTunes.
We did get some attention on a test run on one of the songs with a limited release in Japan. We also received several upbeat positive reviews as well. The song name we tested on the new album was "Demons". With the positive reviews and comments, we may promote a song in Japan this summer and see how well that performs for us. A short tour in Japan would be awesome as I've always wanted to visit there!
I have also started a publishing company to release this new project and will remaster and re-release past albums. The entire record label blueprint has completely changed over the last couple of years and so has the places independent artists are being played. It’s like starting over but good thing I have digital marketing as a tool!
You can hear our songs on the ORIGINALS page soon and will be able to start downloading songs from the new album at multiple outlets like iTunes, Amazon, digital radio, etc..
Thank you for your continued support and hope to see you at a show soon 🙂
