Hoarse & Roaring (2010-2012)
Parlor Hawk released their debut album Hoarse & Roaring in the summer of 2010. The album was produced by Joshua James (Joshua James, Isaac Russell), mixed by Todd Burke (Ben Harper, Jack Johnson) and mastered by Reuben Cohen (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Bruno Mars). The album also features Brandon Campbell (Neon Trees) and Stuart Maxfield (Fictionist).
Hoarse & Roaring was featured on the July 2010 iTunes Indie Spotlight Podcast. In December the album was featured on the iTunes Indie Spotlight page as a "Best of 2010 Singer/Songwriter Album". Music from the album also featured on a Yamaha/TuneCore Music Sampler which reached No. 1 on the Amazon.com Free MP3 Albums Chart with more than 20,000 downloads in the USA. In January 2011 their home state paper, The Salt Lake Tribune, singled the band out as 2011's Next Emerging Band. They also won an award for Best Acoustic Song (for "Saddest Song") in the Independent Music Awards (2012) and were nominated for Best Album Art Work.
Parlor Hawk have supported mainstream and indie acts on select dates including: The Civil Wars, Sharon Van Etten, Train, Priscilla Ahn, Johnny Flynn, The Weepies, Matt Costa, Mindy Gledhill, and many more.
Parlor Hawk (2013-present)
Parlor Hawk announced that they plan to release a new eponymous album in 2014. They also determined not to renew their limited deal with Northplatte Records and raised more than $15,000 by pre-selling the album to fans to facilitate initial recording costs. The album was produced by GRAMMY nominated composer Nate Pyfer (KASKADE, The Moth & the Flame), mixed by Scott Wiley (Elvis Costello, Neon Trees), and mastered by Joe Lambert (The National, Local Natives). Pyfer also co-wrote track "Better Gone". The band gratefully acknowledged that their first album was influenced by former label head Joshua James but announced that their second album features a departure in the form of a more rock sound.
