The fifth album from Oklahoma-bred singer/songwriter Parker Millsap, Be Here Instead, emerged from a wild alchemy of instinct, ingenuity, and joyfully determined rule-breaking.

In a departure from the guitar-and-notebook-based approach to songwriting that shaped his earlier work, the Nashville-based artist followed his curiosity to countless other modes of expression, experimenting with everything from piano to effects pedals to old-school drum machines. As those explorations deepened and broadened his musical vision, Millsap soon arrived at a body of work touched with both unbridled imagination and lucid insight into the search for presence in a chaotic world.
