Album Notes
Arliss Parker evolved as the solo project of Chris Parker in 2006. Chris moved from Colorado to New York in the fall of 2006 with an arsenal of musical ideas. He converted an abandoned dark room into a recording studio and started adding a wide array of sounds to his acoustic guitar compositions. Toy keyboards, glockenspiels, random percussive instruments and electronic tones found their way into the mix and Arliss Parker was born.

Between 2006 and 2007, Chris recorded, mixed and mastered dozens of compositions in that home studio. He whittled the offerings down to six tracks and made a few demos. In 2008, DAG! Records teamed up with Arliss Parker to introduce Handsome like a Lion to the world. The album is a mix of experimental folk rock and electronica that hopes to get you lost in thought.

Arliss Parker is now performing live with the help of musicians Brendan Beecy and Peter Naddeo.
