Parsonsfield - Stronger

WE is the highly anticipated fourth release from Parsonsfield, a quintet praised for making “the most jubilant and danceable indie roots music this side of the Carolinas” (NPR). This collection of songs finds Parsonsfield continuing to push the boundaries of their harmony-driven grassroots origins creating their own distinctive Americana, integrating pop and bold rock flourishes along the way. It has as much influence from 90’s rock and 70’s R&B as it does the folk-pop material that fans have come to expect from the western Massachusetts based outfit. Lead singer Chris Freeman writes "I want to be a person whose light never seems to dim. Who has the energy to live out loud until the end of the day and the confidence to know that if tomorrow never comes I’ve done my best. WE is not about you and me or even 'us,' the band. It’s about finding our way in the world one day at a time trying to live out each moment until the sun goes down. It’s about struggling with depression and anxiety from living in a divisive world, yet we have so much to be grateful for. It's about being at the crossroads of yesterday's dreams and tomorrow's plans.”
