Park

PARK is from Springfield, Illinois. They were around the local scene for a while and the national scene for four years, people are happy with them. Thiscurrent incarnation is the fourth major version of PARK, sort of like Park 4.0. Ladd Mitchell is the only member that has been in all four incarnations of Park.

PARK plays music to save themselves; their drive is to escape a growing divide between the holders of love and the givers of love. PARK is a modern rockinterpreter for lost souls. They give shape in a gray world.

PARK is from Springfield, Illinois. They were around the local scene for a while and the national scene for four years, people are happy with them. Thiscurrent incarnation is the fourth major version of PARK, sort of like Park 4.0. Ladd Mitchell is the only member that has been in all four incarnations of Park.

PARK plays music to save themselves; their drive is to escape a growing divide between the holders of love and the givers of love. PARK is a modern rockinterpreter for lost souls. They give shape in a gray world.

The music of PARK is large but the songs remain humble, natural tunes crafted as if from the variety of nature in Mid-West America. The lyrics of PARKreflect prisms of secret thoughts, they state the hidden world with grace. Hard, soft, colorful, plain – each tune true to itself. Songs they play refuse toleave the head long after PARK is gone, they are riffy without being hooky.

In October 2001, Lobster Records released the debut PARK album, “No Signal”. This work ranges over themes of self-discovery, heart, head and things tocome again. Produced by Cameron Webb (Lit, Over It, Social Distortion) the record develops a rich sound that supports the PARK sense of song, a sense ofmystery in the tunes and a texture calling for repeated listens.

With the release of “No Signal”, PARK embarked on a yearlong non-stop North American tour, three times around. They then went home to write songsand returned to California for the recording of “It Won’t Snow Where You’re Going”, produced by Cameron Webb, released in November 2003. Thisacclaimed album surged through the souls of Park fans worldwide with its dark, hard mood. PARK went on the road again, and did the US three times in2004. In 2005 frontman Ladd Mitchell released a solo cd under the name A Times Beach Crush Factor. They recently released a new CD Building A Better_____.
