April 10 — HADES PLEADS, Parker Millsap (2016)

imageOn his third album, I’m starting to think of Parker Millsap as a tent-revival descendent of Jerry Lee Lewis, all jitters and fire and brimstone, taken over by the Holy Spirit, fueled by sweat and swagger. Millsap grew up in the Pentaclstal church in Oklahoma, and listening to his parents’ old blues records. It shows — a swirl of influences that harken a country church by day, juke joint by night.
