JAMES GALVO PARKER ARRIVES WITH STUNNING DEBUT SINGLE ‘THE WEIGHT’

Dublin singer-songwriter James Galvo Parker has released his powerful debut single The Weight on all streaming and download platforms. Set in the midst of Storm Ophelia which struck Ireland in 2017, The Weight lyrically reflects on a series of events (both literal and metaphorical) that happened during the storm with a musical journey of atmospheric, intense indie-folk. Watch on YouTube here now.

As Parker himself explains, “sometimes the weight of love can envelop and pull you down, sometimes there is no choice but to step into the storm and drown.” The Weight is accompanied by a beautifully cinematic video shot & edited by Ciaran O’Donnell.

As well his stellar songwriting talents, James is also a working actor based in Dublin & London and recently appeared in Mark O’Rowe’s The Delinquent Season opposite Cillian Murphy. The Weight is released on James’s own label Rebel Beat Records, and was recorded, mixed & mastered at Porchlight Studios by producer Niall Woods (sound engineer at Dublin’s National Concert Hall and a touring member of Once – The Musical). Parker and Woods are part of the recording collective ‘A Dark Horse’ along with Hugh Rodgers, who provides the moving piano and string arrangements that drive this new single.
