Action

Rod Lott

The gospel according to Sean

Sean C. Johnson lends his soulful sound to inspire the masses.


Music

Louis Fowler
Neo-gospel singer Sean C. Johnson has always been a music fan, but it wasn’t until hearing a ’60s soul legend on a record player by chance that he decided, right then and there, that was what he wanted to do with his life.

Parker Millsap — Parker Millsap


Folk

Joshua Boydston
Parker Millsap’s debut album, Palisade (which we named the Best Oklahoma Record of 2012), wasn’t like most debuts, sounding more like the product of a grizzled 40-year-old folk hero than that of a 19-year-old kid just months removed from high school.
