Multitalented comedian and musician Joe Parsons shares the delicate and echoey track ‘Fog’, which is the third single release from his debut album ‘Joe Parsons’. The record delivers soothing piano and Joe’s warm vocals, blending elements of folk and soft-pop. Joe opens up in his lyricism, narrating his own experiences of what it’s like to be gay and feel like you have to hide your true self in the modern world.
Joe explains: “Fog is an honest account of growing up not being able to connect with any community, straight or LGBTQ+. In growing up creating a straight character, lying to loved ones and how hiding who you are for so long – the damage that is caused is vast. But more importantly, it’s about connecting with myself, hope and moving forward”.
London based Joe Parsons’ love for music was ignited at a young age, making music from the age of five. His genre-blending sound is beautifully refined, mixing elements of jazz, shoegaze and the local West Country delicacy of trip-hop. Covering the important subject of homosexuality in his debut album, Joe’s music is admirably raw and honest, and strives to connect with each and every listener. Taking us on a journey through many moving moments in his life since coming out, Joe’s new album is captivating and undeniably a must-listen.
