Episode 027–Jeremy Parsons, “Burn This House Down” with Bruce Hilliard

Born in San Antonio, Texas, Jeremy Parsons grew up soaking in the sounds of Texas music in the dancehalls of the Lone Star State. Jeremy was always a fan of music, but it wasn’t until his later high school years that he discovered his knack for it. Driven by his passion, he taught himself to play the guitar and began to write and perform music.

Jeremy’s early influences include Hank Williams and George Strait. His spin on original writing combined with his unique voice award him a sound of his own. 

Over the past decade, Jeremy has played all over the U.S. and in Europe, including numerous venues in Texas. Pulling from the example of Texas performance artists, Jeremy loves to interact with his audience. He captivates the crowd with his genuine personality, unique humor, and heart-felt love of his occupation.

Jeremy draws from his personal experiences to create songs that are keenly perceptive and meaningful. His current single, “Burn This House Down,” paints a poignant picture of heartbreak and acceptance that still remains relatable. This song will stick with you long after your first listen. The song is currently in the IndieWorld Country Top 40. The video is nominated for a Monkey Bread Tree Film Festival award, an IMDB-sanctioned film festival.

Episode 018–The History of the Eagles 1971-1980 by Bruce Hilliard

Co-founders Glenn Frey (Detroit, MI), guitarist, and drummer Don Henley (Gilmer, TX) were later joined, but not all simultaneously, by Bernie Leadon (Minneapolis, MN), Randy Meisner (Scottsbluff, NE), Don Felder (Gainesville, FL), Joe Walsh (Wichita, KS) and Timothy B. Schmit (Oakland, CA).

Early on Frey and musician friend J.D. Souther shared an upstairs portion of a duplex with Jackson Browne. Names and places that seemed chaotic at the time have culminated in what appears to be a carefully crafted novel years later. The Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Linda Ronstadt, Poco, Tom Petty, Joni Mitchell, and Crosby, Stills and Nash are among the names of fame. As with episode 16 starring Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Gainesville Florida seems to incubate rock stars at a remarkable per capita rate.
