BBC-4 Radio called a recent live session "marvelous... absolutely beautiful... one of our favorite sessions of the year”, the magazine El Pais declared a Spanish performance "monstrously sad and brilliantly anachronistic…”, & Rolling Stone France calls his most recent release “perfect, just perfect”.  For ten years Monk Parker has sung on stages across the US and Europe, in small groups (most notably Parker & Lily), large ensembles (including the 14-man strong The Low Lows), and solo. Under diverse names he has released five full-length albums and two EPs on such labels as Misra, WARM, Manifesto, PCP, Monotreme (England), Houston Party (Spain), & Crippled Dick Hot Wax (Germany); and played festivals from a Flaming-Lips curated All Tomorrow’s Parties in New York to Barcelona’s Primavera Sound. On June 16th, 2015, Monk is slated to release his very first solo album “How The Spark Loves The Tinder" on the Bronze Rat label out of Berlin
