Back when they were in high school, PARACHUTE’s Will Anderson (vocals, guitar), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Christopher “Kit” French (saxophone, keyboards) spent nearly every afternoon in Anderson’s basement, dreaming up songs showing a deep affinity for classic pop, heart-felt rock, and tuneful blue-eyed soul. Now, after a decade of touring internationally and turning out hit singles like the platinum «She Is Love» (#1 at iTunes), the gold «Kiss Me Slowly,» «Forever And Always,» and «Can't Help» (from the album Overnight, which debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200), PARACHUTE’s last album reclaimed the spirit that first sparked their love of music.

“Making that record felt just like that one hour after school when we were kids,” says Anderson of Wide Awake (2016), the band’s fourth full-length album. “It was like we were all 15 again and just starting to discover that excitement of creating songs together.”

In bringing Wide Awake to life, PARACHUTE made a point of “dialing back our thought process and just doing whatever we could to best serve the songs,” as Anderson explains. To fulfill that ambition, the trio returned to the same sense of wonder they felt upon launching their first musical project back in 2002.

Starting out while they were still in high school, the band quickly began landing gigs locally and soon gained a following at the nearby University of Virginia. As their inaugural release under the name Parachute, Losing Sleep debuted at #2 on the Billboard Digital Albums Chart and climbed to #40 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Over the next few years, along with releasing The Way It Was and Overnight (which shot to the #3 spot on iTunes), Parachute toured with such artists as Kelly Clarkson and Gavin DeGraw, in addition to three sold out headlining tours.

“One of the biggest highlights over the years is definitely playing all these venues that we dreamed about growing up,” says Anderson. “Anytime we play a show like that, it’s just mind-blowing for us.”

The band embarked on the “Wide Awake Tour” in the spring and summer of 2016 to support the new album, then joined the Tour De Compadres in the Fall of 2016 with NEEDTOBREATHE and Mat Kearney. This latest album and tour cycle have once again spawned an infectious, smash single, «Without You,» which has now moved just behind «She Is Love» and «Kiss Me Slowly» on the band's Spotify Top 10.

They quickly followed up this successful opening slot with their sold out “Getaway Tour,” in the spring of 2017, returning to some of their favorite venues from over the years. Parachute will play a series of intimate acoustic shows this Fall, while continuing to work on new music to be released in 2018.
