BORN AND RAISED ON MARYLAND’S EASTERN SHORE, PARKER ZELTER MCCOWN BRINGS A CHARISMATIC ENERGY TO THE MICROPHONE. HE STUDIED COMMUNICATION AND MUSIC INDUSTRY AT JAMES MADISON UNIVERSITY.  

THOUGH HIS ROOTS IN MARYLAND ARE STRONG, HIS LOVE FOR MUSIC AND NATURE HAVE LED HIM ON ADVENTURES ALL AROUND THE WORLD. FROM WORKING AS A ROADIE FOR THE WAILERS, TO WORKING AS A 1ST MATE ABOARD A DEEP SEA CHARTER FISHING BOAT OFF OAHU’S WEST SIDE IN HAWAII, AND ON TO BECOMING AN ORIGINAL CAST MEMBER ON BRAVO’S BELOW DECK SAILING YACHT, IT’S NO MISTAKE THAT PARKER ENJOYS A GOOD TIME. 

MOST RECENTLY, PARKER’S CAREER PATH HAS TURNED TO MUSIC. HIS MUSICAL PERFORMANCES BRING TO LIFE AN ORIGINAL AMERICANA EXPERIENCE WHILE JAMMIN’ IN PLENTY OF DEEP CUTS TO GO AROUND. PARKER SPENT TIME PLAYING WITH BLUEGRASS/AMERICANA MUSICIANS IN COLORADO AND PRODUCED VARIOUS MUSIC VIDEOS AS WELL AS HIS FIRST ALBUM, WHICH FEATURES ALLIE KRAL.    

PARKER WAS A PRODUCER OF YONDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND’S NEWEST MUSIC VIDEO, INTO THE FIRE. HE WAS THIS YEAR’S OFFICIAL CRABCAKE JUDGE ALONGSIDE JEREMY GARRETT, OF THE INFAMOUS STRINGDUSTERS, AT BALTIMORE’S VERY OWN CHARM CITY BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL.
