Roots to Grooves – Arlo Parks

Welcome to our weekly podcast “Roots to Grooves”.
Each episode explores the music, life and careers of musical artists from their earliest beginnings through to their most recent releases.

This week musicians Jay Purcell and Jesse Quigley discuss the career and creative approaches of British singer-songwriter and poet “Arlo Parks“.

A relatively new artist on the scene, her debut album “Collapsed in Sunbeams” was only released in 2021, but since 2018 she has dropped sporadic singles as well as a well received EP. Arlo’s music has been described as R&B, Neo Soul and even Indie Folk, due to her poetic/thoughtful lyrics and soothing voice. One of her big breakthroughs came in 2018 when upon uploading her music to BBC’s “Introducing” initiative, a radio DJ passed on her tracks to the management firm “Beatnick Creative”, who have since become her managers. There is a lot more to know about this rising artist. Jay and Jesse discuss her multi-ethnic background, the effect her songs have had on the public at large, and the guys spin some of their favorite tracks from Arlo’s repertoire.
