Before Parachute, He Was Rocking A Cappella

Jeff Luppino-Esposito of the Newark Pop Culture Examiner just sent me his recent post on Parachute frontman Will Anderson. Before he was selling out venues across the US, Anderson was performing in his college a cappella group, The Virginia Gentleman.

I was lucky enough to attend Parachute’s sold-out performance this past Friday at Bowery Ballroom and was truly blown away. One of my first interviews for the blog, it’s amazing to see their progress over the years and sell out venues where all in attendance are singing the lyrics to every song word for word. The band’s cover of Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” was completely unexpected and remarkably impressive.

You can watch a few videos from Will’s college days below, and for more be sure to check out Luppino-Esposito’s article here. Check out Parachute, currently on tour with SafetySuit.
