 "A brooding blend of gothic songs and Nyman-esque instrumentation" Time Out "Parry's poems of morbid carnality and romance are framed by heavy velvet curtains of stylized theatrical gloom" Uncut “Johnny Parry deserves recognition and praise. Consistently tackling unusual projects and concepts, his performances are simply beautiful" The 405 Live performances consisting of up to thirty musicians alongside live film made by artist Andy Holden (International artist with whom the orchestra have collaborated at Tate Britain, Kettles Yard, Odeon Covent Garden and many more galleries). On April 2nd 2011 they will be releasing their new album 'Fields and Birds and Things' with a concert at London's Union Chapel (9th June). The fifth album within the Johnny Parry universe but a debut for the Johnny Parry Chamber Orchestra. Sample of new work and film... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kcp8l5dLt0Y A clip of the most recent live performance... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFhTQ9f2Eow&feature=related Planet notion - "Johnny Parry and that thirty-piece orchestra of his graced the stage, and oh my, what a treat they were. Beginning with ‘Kicking and Screaming Alternate Version,’ an uplifting build of strings, brass and drums, with Parry’s ever present, wonderfully gruff vocals joined by his small but perfectly formed chorus.

And everything which followed was just as enjoyable. A live setting is hands down the best way to experience the Johnny Parry Chamber Orchestra. There is a wonderful juxtaposition of darkness and melancholy with lighter tones, irony with honesty, humour with sobriety. Each element of the orchestra complements the others perfectly, and each track is accompanied by a short film or animation, courtesy of Andy Holden.

They are certainly a talented bunch who know how to put on a good show. And Parry’s inter-song chit-chat was equally engaging, witty and relaxed, he even brought forth a couple of bellowing belly-laughs. It was an hour of visual and aural delight which seemed to pass all too quickly." This debut ‘Fields & Birds & Things’ possesses a unique, baroque beauty, barely touching on conventional frames of reference, and all the better for it. Parry previously recorded in his solo moniker accompanied by varying amounts of orchestration.

‘Fields & Birds & Things’ marks the debut release from the now solidified Johnny Parry Chamber Orchestra of thirty plus players. Although a debut for the ensemble this album leads off from the solo record ‘More Love and Death’... “a piano led thing of beauty” - timeout, “Extraordinary!” Rolling StoneDE, also described as “genius” by Musicemissions, Daily Vailt, and Bearded Magazine. It received generous radio support after a forty date tour around Europe, locally including repeat plays on BBC radio 3 and 6. Read more on Last.fm.
