Parker McCollum & Read Southall Band to Headline SWOSUpalooza
Parker McCollum and the Read Southall Band are the featured artists at this year's SWOSUpalooza on Friday, April 5, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.
The SWOSU Panorama Series and SWOSU Student Government Association are sponsors of the concert in the Pioneer Cellular Event Center.
Parker McCollum is an Austin (TX)-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Parker broke out with the revealing and critically adored 2013 debut The Limestone Kid and returned in 2017 with the acclaimed Probably Wrong, which pulls back the curtain to reveal Parker’s depth of artistry. The 10-track LP, written after the dissolution of a long-term relationship, is equal parts self-flagellating and transcendent. It is also the most honest he has ever been in song.
Four college friends (Read Southall, Reid Barber, JT Perry and Jeremee Knipp) formed the Read Southall Band (RSB) in Stillwater. Read released Six String Sorrow in 2015 and the demo record took the Oklahoma college scene by storm. In 2017, the Read Southall Band released their debut full band record titled Borrowed Time. RSB is currently touring their record across the United States and are in pre-production for a sophomore record.
