The band Parachute is from Charlottesville, Virginia. The band’s original name was, Sparky’s Flaw. In 2008, they changed their name to Parachute. The members include: Will Anderson (vocals, guitar, and keyboard), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), Alex Hargrave (bass guitar), Kit French (saxophone, keyboard, and vocals), and Nate McFarland (guitar, and vocals). The members from the band have been touring and promoting their music since they graduated in May 2008. They have toured with many artists such as Duffy, Matt Nathanson, Michelle Branch, and The Goo Goo Dolls. During their first tour, following the release of their album, “Losing Sleep,” they toured with artists such as The Script, Secondhand Serenade, 3 Doors Down, and Kelly Clarkson.

Parachute is an American rock band. Their genre of music is pop rock and blue-eyed soul. Their songs “Under Control” and “She is Love” were used in Nivea’s national skincare television commercials. Their first album was release in 2009 and is sold on iTunes. Their second single from the album, Losing Sleep, was “Under Control” and was highlighted as the Free iTunes Single of the Week. The Way it Was, was released in 2011. They are currently working on their third album.

Their singles in 2009 were, “She is Love” and “Under Control.” Parachute’s singles in 2011 were, “Something to Believe In,” “Kiss Me Slowly,” “You and Me,” and “What I Know.” Their new and upcoming single, from their new album in 2013, is going to be, “Hearts Go Crazy.”

I have been to a couple of their concerts when I was younger. Parachute is one of my all time favorite bands. I can really relate to what they write and sing about. Many of the songs explain my thoughts and feelings.
