Parson James and Fletcher Play Music Hall of Williamsburg Tomorrow

December 8th, 2016

Singer-songwriter Parson James left behind small-town South Carolina to move to New York City when he was 17 in hopes of making it in the music business, crafting what he calls “conflicted pop gospel.” He got his big break when Norwegian DJ Kygo wanted to remix James’ original acoustic version of “Stole the Show” (performed live, above, for KCRW FM), turning it into a club smash in the process. The Temple EP (stream it below), filled with tender lyrics about acceptance and longing for love, arrived earlier this year. Fletcher, another local up-and-coming singer-songwriter, has also recently released an EP, Finding Fletcher (stream it below), which Idolator calls “a treasure trove of upbeat pop anthems.” And you can experience those anthems live when she and Parson James play Music Hall of Williamsburg tomorrow night.
