Test 11 – [Pardyalone]

There have been too many artists that have impacted me personally this year alone to even begin tallying up the numbers. I love this because I can look back at where I was last year and see how much I’ve grown as a human being, and when there is a single artist that pops into my mind and makes me truly appreciate their art above almost anyone else I’ve come across this year, that’s saying a ton. Pardyalone is this artist because although I may not listen to him constantly due to the raw, emotional nature of his music, there are certain times when I simply need to turn on his songs to get through certain struggles and moments of pain. I don’t cry often, and that’s not a toughness thing. I wish I did cry more, but it just doesn’t happen for some reason. When I need to shed a few tears, let my emotions out, and try to move past the speed bump that stands in front of me, I head right to Pardy’s Spotify profile and the waterworks completely unleash. That says so much about his music, at least to me, because the way he puts his …

A Place for Us – [Pardyalone]

Ever since I first found out about Pardyalone, it is hard for me to imagine a more captivating artist on the rise than him. I get overly excited when I find out that he put out something new, which is weird because his music is often pretty depressive and bleak, but it’s not just sad for the sake of being sad. Pardy isn’t just another musician with face tattoos and a fabricated story. In fact, he is exactly the opposite. If for some reason you judged him on appearance alone and had to predict what kind of music he made, you would be dead wrong, and that’s what I love so much about him. He is different, and I italicize the word because I can’t stress this enough. His dejected narratives might not get you pumped up or dancing, but he shares his experiences in a way that reveals every last bit of his soul, and it connects with listeners on a level much deeper than music alone. No matter what kind of mood I’m in, he forces me to revisit my previous hardships and put them into perspective, helping me learn to be a better person even if these …

She Likes My Tattoos – [Pardyalone]

I have a handful of very trusted sources who send music my way, and while there are a plethora of other people who try and send music to me whenever they can, I know that this small group is never going to send anything unless it is actually well worth the listen. Pardyalone is one of the artists that came across my radar probably no more than a month or so ago, but after all of the artists that have been sent to me, I have to admit that I think he very well might be my favorite, but I still want to hear so much more of his music before I make that my definitive opinion. His song “Not A Home” is just so moving and powerful, and even with an instrumental that sets a melancholic scene, it’s Pardy’s voice that just naturally pumps all of these feelings into the record, making it literally impossible not to feel something while listening. “She Likes My Tattoos” is the name of his latest single which boasts a Clay Wilson-produced beat that includes some addicting guitar riffs and a rock-forward style that I absolutely love. In turn, his vocals paint the entire …

not a home – [Pardyalone]

Minnesota might be known for cold weather, their Juicy Lucy burger, and countless lakes amongst other things, but they’re not really known for their booming music scene. While it’s obvious that there are several famous artists from the northern state, one person who is new to my radar is Pardyalone, and I can tell that he’s here to shake things up and let people know that the Land of 10,000 Lakes is about to be known as the Land of 100,000 hits. Since I just found out about him, I obviously don’t have a ton of experience with his previously released music, but I can tell from his brand-new song “not a home” that he really does put his all into his music and he’s here for the long haul, not just for a brief moment in the spotlight. Although he might have tattoos all over, including his face, colored hair, and the look of a very intense, wild artist, this single proves the complete opposite, and I was as pleasantly surprised as I have ever been. The instrumental is calm and soothing, and while it could easily be taken in the direction of an optimistic, perseverant track, Pardy decides …
