Parkland is a music project based around the writing and recordings of Rob Malowany. Primarily a singer/songwriter, immersion in the Vancouver creative music scene inspired Malowany to mix improv and textural exploration into his song structures. In a live setting Parkland exists in many forms, from voice with guitar and piano, to an exploratory full-spectrum band with drums, dobro, cello, piano, and bass, together with an array of noise soundscapes and unique textures.
The group’s lineup is an ever-shifting mix of members of the Vancouver creative, experimental, and roots communities, the current touring line up includes:
Stephen Lyons – drums, noise (Fond of Tigers/Sun Belt)
Robin James Hunter – slide guitar, lap steel
Shanto Acharia – bass (Fond of Tigers/Limbs of the Stars)
Jon Wood - electric guitar (Flophouse Jr., Cam Penner)
Rob Malowany – voice, electric guitar
Kimberley MacGregor is a sultry and powerful vocalist who writes and performs soulful songs that are fearlessly honest and emotionally relatable.
