    SOLD OUT: State Theatre Presents: Parsonsfield


    “WE is not about you and me or even ‘us,’ the band. It’s about finding our way in the world one day at a time trying to live out each moment until the sun goes down.” Parsonsfield has been through the wringer of ups and downs and decided for the first time since the band’s 2011 conception to take a two-month break from touring to focus solely on recording.The result is WE, a contemplative EP filled with real life struggle and excitement. The album takes us from the joys of childhood discovery to the depression and confusion of a quarter-life crisis, and ends with dancing your way toward the darkness at the end of days.

    Amy Black


    Nashville-based, Amy Black returns to OLS for an intimate evening (duo), singing songs from her last four albums, included her newest release, Memphis. Amy Black has always been drawn to soul singers.

Black then hunted down several top musical architects to help her lay down the sound she was meant to make — the sound of Memphis.
