The Parsnip Revolt with Cliff Hillis and The Milwaukees

The Parsnip Revolt

Striving for perfection can be a detailed and hard earned journey. The biggest critic of any musical group is usually themselves. The Parsnip Revolt is that very scenario in motion; many times starting a project from scratch in an effort to steer it into the proper lane. With their new album, A Sunshine Report, The Parsnip Revolt has found their own open highway to successful longevity.
This is the story of an American rock band and their solidarity through seemingly insurmountable creative struggles. This is the tale of a band that has dodged common pitfalls to challenge the status quo of Philly’s alternative rock clique and win a place in Philadelphia culture.
The new and exciting album, A Sunshine Report, represents the band’s continued commitment to their craft, their sound, and most importantly, their fans.
The Parsnip Revolt is rooted in melodic alternative rock, utilizing the compositional punch of Geremiah Giampa, Jake Williams, Brian Fin and Tom Mellon in sonically diverse ways well beyond the reach of most bands.
Whether you see them live or drop your hard-earned money on A Sunshine Report, you’ll become a quick and cherished member of the family, and in the end, part of the revolt against mediocrity

Cliff Hillis

Cliff Hillis is a singer/songwriter based outside of Philadelphia PA. He has become known for writing catchy melodic pop songs that have been compared to the likes of Wilco, Fountains of Wayne, and The Beatles. Cliff's songs have been featured in several movies (such as Jennifer Lopez "Enough") and TV shows (such as Party Of Five, Life Unexpected and All My Children). His newest independent release "Dream Good" has just come out on TallBoy Records, and was mixed by studio wizard Brad Jones at Alex The Great Recording in Nashville TN. The album features guests such as members of the Philadelphia band The Hooters, Danny Wilde of The Rembrandts and Philip Price of The Winterpills.

The Milwaukees

Complimented as “charmingly arrogant” by some and “hard working showmen” by others - The Milwaukees make music for the masses: engaging, raw and instantly approachable. Sonically they live between the Foo Fighters and the Faces, while influences like the Who and the Clash permeate the band’s explosive live sound. With their fourth full length, American Anthems Vol. 2, the boys from Jersey focused on writing durable songs and memorable melodies while creating an accessible collection of rock gems.
