Parmalee is a family band comprised of brothers Matt and Scott Thomas (lead vocals/guitar and drums, respectively), cousin Barry Knox (bass) and life-long best friend Josh McSwain (guitar). Influenced by such musical heavyweights as the Allman Brothers, Travis Tritt and Bob Seger, the band’s name is derived from the small town of Parmele, NC (population 262), which is home to a small tin-roofed barn dubbed Studio B where the band practiced on every given evening.

“Already Callin’ You Mine” is the third consecutive Top 10 hit off Parmalee’s debut Stoney Creek Records album, FEELS LIKE CAROLINA. Recent hits include the Top 3 “Close Your Eyes” and the PLATINUM-certified multi-week #1 smash “Carolina.” Parmalee has earned 284 million Pandora streams, 41 million plays on Spotify, over 19.7 million YouTube/ VEVO views and 1.6 million singles sold. In 2014, Parmalee earned a Teen Choice Award nomination for “Choice Country Group,” a semi-finalist nomination for ACM “New Artist of the Year” and was lauded one of “Country Music’s Breakout Stars Of 2014” by MSN Entertainment. The band has supported Brad Paisley and Jake Owen on national tours while finding time to perform on NBC’s TODAY show, The Late Late Show w/ Craig Ferguson, FOX & Friends, MLB Central’s Studio 21, The Queen Latifah Show, WGN Midday and more. Parmalee is currently in the studio working with production team New Voice Entertainment on its sophomore album expected in 2016.
