He sings. He writes songs. He plays guitar. And his new recording — an April 2010 EP of cool, crisp country tunes, just like him — as well as forecast releases of four songs or more at a time during the coming 12 months are the foundation of a full-length album he wants his fans to help him choose the tracks on.

The Austin-born Texas artist has been writing since the release of his last album, his second, the irreverent and powerful ANYWHERE IN TEXAS, which featured a dozen songs written and co-written by Park, including "Cold in Colorado," with its killer chorus hook; "Don't Look," which climbed The Texas Music Chart; a co-write with Wade Bowen, "A Woman Like You"; the hard-driving "First Day of Summer"; and the sentimental final cut, "These Days."

The new EP features four tunes in the same vein, universally melodic with bold yet personal lyrics, story-songs that come from the heart, sung in a pure, pitch-perfect yet understated voice that perfectly suits the songs and is easily identifiable on country radio.

With Park in the studio were Karl Schwoch (electric guitar), Will Armstrong (drums, percussion) and Eric Lenington (bass), the quartet starting to come together after December 2006 and a gig at Austin's Broken Spoke opening for Asleep at the Wheel. Since then, they've also performed with or opened for Clint Black, Tracy Lawrence, Mark Chestnutt, Gary Allan, Pat Green, Jack Ingram, Randy Rogers Band and Eli Young Band.
