Jed Parsons has recently released his highly-anticipated debut album, Midnight Feast, which he’s taking to the masses this month with an Album Release Tour.

It officially marks the arrival of one of New Zealand’s most intriguing new talents and shines a light on Parsons’ knack for combining clever lyricism with irresistible melodies and infectious hooks.

Tender and delicate in places; raucous and rollicking in others, Midnight Feast is a 10-track indie-pop gem containing the already released singles ‘Get Lost’, ‘Everybody’s Stupid’ and ‘Time’, which have received radio play on New Zealand’s premier indie-rock station Hauraki.

Other highlights on the album include the gentle, yet soaring opener ‘Real World’; the blues-driven ‘I Need Her’and the gorgeous and glowing, ‘Reading Me Wrong’.

“I’ve been living with this collection of songs for a number of years. It’s been such a massive process because I’ve been so focused on releasing something that is a completely genuine representation of me, both as a person and a musician,” says Parsons.

“It feels amazing to finally be sharing the album with people - I’m proud of the writing, the playing, the production, the artwork and the balance of light-heartedness and depth it seems to possess, which is what I set out to achieve with it in the first place.”

Midnight Feast was recorded with Lee Prebble at Surgery Studios in Wellington.

“Working with Lee was incredible. You feel an instant sense of calm when you walk in to his studio, which I believe is pretty rare. In retrospect, the vibe of The Surgery had so much to do with our performance and the way the record sounds. I’m stoked with it.”

The Midnight Feast Album Release Tour kicks off on Friday, July 20 in Auckland at Neck of the Woods, with support from October. It’s followed by a show at San Fran in Wellington on Saturday, July 21 with support from Hans Pucket.

It picks up again in Christchurch at Blue Smoke on Friday, July 27, with support from Sunset Synth; before finishing in Dunedin on Saturday, July 28 at The Cook with Marlin’s Dreaming as support.

Parsons is a consummate live performer and multi-instrumentalist, who has played in a number of bands and appeared at countless festivals around the world; headlined tours and played alongside some of New Zealand and Australia’s finest indie acts.

As a solo artist, his music balances eccentricity and energy with intimacy and musical sensitivity, maintaining a focus on catchy hooks and lyrical prowess. His songwriting is sculpted from his observations and analysis of a world he enjoys.

Earlier this year, Parsons and his band played at Auckland City Limits and Nostalgia Festival as part of a nationwide tour. He completed at least two semi-successful stage-dives, and only blew the stage’s power once. Spotify and Apple Music playlisting have only reinforced his live show, which continues to blow away his wide demographic.
