Junk parlor is gypsy junk rock band born from the mind and musical wanderings of Jason Vanderford. Sounds of rock, underlying gypsy jazz rhythms and a 50's tinge create a familiar yet twisted up sound that steers you off the beaten path. Vanderford has a throaty howling voice that ranges from a cool low croon to an all out bawl, alluding to tales of fantastical love, late night betrayal and wily satisfaction.
Vanderford leads the band with his beckoning vocals, acoustic banjo and rhythm guitar alongside Jimmy Grant's Django infused lead electric guitar. Backed by an uncompromising beat from drummer and cajón player Rt Goodrich and the growling electric fretless bass of Tim Bush, Junk Parlor is a dreamscape junkyard of sounds based out of San Francisco, California. Their debut album "Wild Tones" was released October 2013 and they recently completed their first Pacific Northwest tour.
