Parker Millsap — Parker Millsap


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.

Fiawna Forté - mi-MOH-suh-pud-EE-kuh: A Lo-Fi Album


Zach Hale
When you have a voice as brawny and potent as Fiawna Forté’s, it’s tempting to let loose at every opportunity — let your hair down, unleash your cathartic howl and capitalize on your unusual skill. The Tulsa singer-songwriter’s 2010 debut album, Transitusdid exactly that; guitars were amplified to the max, and its songs were progressive in the sense that they built toward an inevitable release. The record operated largely within this traditional indie-rock framework, to the point where even its quieter moments couldn’t help but boil over.
