At 25 years of age, Oklahoma native Parker Millsap is quickly making a name for himself with his captivating live performances, soulful sound, and character-driven narratives. He’s had a string of highlights in recent years including his network television debut on CONAN, a performance with Elton John at the Apple Music Festival in London, an Austin City Limits taping and an Americana Music Association nomination for Album of the Year. 

He first picked up an acoustic guitar at nine, then plugged in and went electric after getting into Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. 

Parker’s newest album, Other Arrangements, (released 5/4/18 via Thirty Tigers) finds him taking bold steps in new directions. Associated press says "Parker Millsap rocks harder than ever on his fourth album." And Rolling Stone calls Other Arrangements Parker's "tightest, sharpest and most infectious set of songs to date."


Daphne Willis was instrumental in the creation of this birthday benefit back in 2011 and has played it several times. A San Antonio native who grew up in Chicago, Daphne makes her home in New York City. Her brand of indie pop music transcends traditional labeling and many of her songs have been heard in movies, television shows and commercials. An outspoken advocate for mental health awareness, Daphne created a sensation with Somebody's Someone, a song which has received over 23 million views on Facebook and changed lives around the world.
