The National Parks is a folk pop 5-piece formed in Provo, Utah in early 2013. Later that year they released their first album, Young, and saw it climb to #13 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. The success of that album, along with additional chart success from their January 2014 standalone single, "As We Ran," helped fuel touring across much of the United States through 2014-2015. In August of 2015 The National Parks released, Until I Live, their second full-length album, and once again watched their music climb charts – iTunes' Pop Chart and even Billboard's Heatseekers Chart. In May 2016, "Monsters of the North," a lead single from Until I Live was announced 1st prize winner in the International Songwriting Competition – one of the world's premiere songwriting competitions - in the Unsigned Only category. The band continues to tour through 2016, now having played in 50+ cities in 19 different states, including performances at SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon, Make Music Pasadena and Canadian Music Week.
