Parmalee
Parmalee
For the members of chart-topping country quartet Parmalee, those five digits are more than the postal code of their hometown (Parmele, N.C. – population 278). They’re a badge of honor, tattooed on each of their arms ... and on each of their hearts. And now, it’s the title of their second album for Stoney Creek Records. Comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals and drums), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and their best friend Josh McSwain (lead guitar), Parmalee are the quintessential American country band. Raised on a diet of Southern rock, country, and blues, they formed in 2001 as a bunch of small town boys chasing wild weekend nights, but their talents eventually took them beyond the little cement-block barn they rehearsed in and onto country music’s biggest stages, not to mention the top of Billboard’s countrychart. More than a decade of blue-collar persistence made their 2013 breakout single, “Carolina,” into a Platinum-certified #1 hit, while their debut album landed in the Top 10. Two more singles (“Close Your Eyes”and “Already Callin’ You Mine”) rose to #4 and #10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, and all the while they kept their noses to the grindstone, touring hundreds of dates a year. Awards nominations from the Academy of Country Music and Teen Choice Awards came rolling in, and headlining tours were launched. Now with their next batch of music, they’re offering up a tribute to the place where it all began, and embracing the future. “We have been wanting to call an album 27861 for years now,” Matt explains. “Everybody has their own story, and you never know where people come from or how their lives have panned out. But we grew up around rural, hard-working people.”“You started working young, and you started learning that hard-work ethic,” Scott says, thinking of the back-breaking days he and Matt spent logging local forests. “That’s still our mentality now.”Just like the ink embedded in their arms, the hard-working virtues of that upbringing have seeped into Parmalee’s soul. And with 27861, they propel the band into a bold new chapter – one with respect for where they came from, but harnessing the same adventurous sprit they left home with all those years ago. Produced by the band themselves with a who’s who of Nashville’s most visionary musical minds, its sound mixes new flavors into the Parmalee cocktail. “It has to go forward, because you never want to go back,” Matt explains. Their much loved country-rock sound is still in force, defined by blazing guitars and soaring harmonies, live drums and a locked-in musical brotherhood. But fans will notice a change. Many of Parmalee’s new songs push forward to the very edges of modern country, bringing in expertly-programmed beats, irresistible pop melodies, and vocal hooks built to grab attention from fans of any genre. “There’s a lot of new tools, but that’s all they are,” says Josh. “Tools.”

“It’s all about singing along, smiling and having a good time,” Matt adds with a grin. “That’s what we want.”Singing along has never been easier, as personal, lived-in stories form the album’s foundation. Matt co-wrote nine of the 12 tracks with Music City masters like busbee, Tom Douglas, Craig Wiseman, and the late Andrew Dorff, and the impact of tiny Parmele is felt even as the guys continue to chase their dreams. Written by the singer with hit makers Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne, the blood-pumping second single “Sunday Morning” shows off the contrasting truths of the band’s journey – they crave both big-city, fast-lane fun, and simple lives filled with love. The track combines heart and reverence for tradition with an explosive rush of romantic desire, and concert crowds have been eating it up as thousands are inspired to clap and sing along, wrapped up in rafter-shaking abandon. “We’re always trying to get back,” Matt explains, saying even country stars need to stay in touch with who they truly are. “Back home away from the crazy where everything is laid back. Now Nashville is home for us. We all moved here together with a dream ... a dream that started in a little cement block barn in Parmele, N.C.”As their hard work begins to pay off, Parmalee’s starting point seems to keep getting farther from view. But no matter how far they rise, they know that small hometown will always come with them – from the lessons learned to the sounds they love to the drive that keeps pushing them forward. That’s why they named the band “Parmalee” in the first place, and that’s why their second album is called 27861. “It’s embedded in our soul,” Barry says

Kasey Tyndall’s sweet southern charm is often rudely interrupted by an impressive collection of rock ’n’ roll t-shirts. AC/DC, Ramones and Guns ’n Roses — crop tops preferably.

“You can help me Mr. Dave, I have so many,” she says looking with wide, innocent eyes toward her manager when pressed to quantify her collection. “Stryper. I just went on tour with them, that was awesome. I wear my Stryper shirt a lot. Some of my other favorite shirts are Bon Jovi, Loverboy, Lucinda Williams, Jason Isbell … ”

Yes, she calls her manager Mr. Dave and her agent Mr. Jay – that’s kind of her thing, recognizable by anyone raised in the south. But she says their name with respect and reverence instead of the sass and flare one would expect from a girl who prefers leather and denim over dresses and heels, just like she prefers a rowdy crowd dancing on a bar top over a seated one golf-clapping after each song.

Don’t be totally fooled — Tyndall isn’t a rocker hiding in a cowgirl town. Her Eastern North Carolina accent and penchant for aching love songs gives her away as a grounded country thoroughbred. Tyndall’s debut single, “Everything is Texas” saw great success on the Wild Country Spotify playlist and the video hit Top 10 on CMT’s 12 Pack Countdown.
Tyndall’s second release is "Bar That’s Open", a song she co-wrote with Ashley McBryde and Lainey Wilson. “For as long as people have been breaking hearts or getting their hearts broken, there’s a bar, that bar’s regulars, and its staff to help. We all have that bar in our life – no matter what we’re going through, we’re somehow family when we come together there.” says Tyndall about her latest single.
Tyndall’s journey to Nashville was accelerated in 2014 when she won a radio station contest to sing “We Were Us” with Keith Urban. Opportunities came quickly after that late summer performance, including signing with WME’s Jay Williams for booking (Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley). The then college student was greener than new money when she moved to Music City — during her first co-write she had no idea she was working with Doug Johnson (Randy Travis, Lee Brice, Rascal Flatts) until he stepped away and the other writer in the room, Nick Autry, said, “Do you know who that is?”

“Anyone that big … I get super nervous,” Tyndall says, the anxiety flushing her face even as she thinks about writing with some of the veterans and legends she’s sat down with. She’s had opportunity to be nervous a lot lately. Neil Mason from The Cadillac Three, Driver Williams from Eric Church’s band and Tommy Cecil are a few of the seasoned writers she’s worked with. A publishing deal with Sony ATV promises to bring more top-end talent to her door. After working with her, Cecil (Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, North Carolina’s Parmalee) agreed to produce her album, out November 2017.

Between songs and offstage, Tyndall couldn’t be more approachable. She’s quiet, but increasingly confident about who she is, and who she ain’t. “I wasn’t the prettiest or most popular or anywhere remotely close to that,” she says recalling high school. Her multiplying fan base appreciates this and her rock anthems have become their anthem.

“You get on social media and you see society saying ‘That’s what you should look like.’ I instead wanna be a voice of ‘Hey it’s totally OK who you are, just like you are.'We need a little more love these days and a little less judgement.”

As Tyndall explains,“I love to sing and perform and I’m thankful for anyone who wants to listen. It’s almost like my fans and I have this team. It’s kinda the ‘Be who you are’ team. And I’m blessed to have the best team in the world.”

Tyndall has done over 100 tour dates in 2017 with the likes of Parmalee, Kane Brown, Granger Smith, Casey Donahew, Wheeler Walker Jr. and The Cadillac Three... and there appears to be no slowing down. In November 2017 she hits the road as direct support for Parmalee on their Hotdamalama Tour.
