Parker Hu - Let You Chase Me #Flyah Review


Parker Hu began playing music as a mandatory activity. Though she took piano and trumpet lessons throughout her younger years, she had little opinion about music at the time. It wasn’t until she was fifteen that she taught herself to read charts and play chords on the guitar. Hu quickly fell in love with the instrument. 
Not long after, she figured out how to record audio with a borrowed computer from school. Sitting down, plugging in, and recording her first song was instant magic for her. This is when things began to really take shape.
Hu would go on to play guitar for worship services at her church, while her binder and sketchbooks filled with original songs. By the end of high school, singing and playing guitar was a part of her identity. College years introduced her to the world of studio recording, as audio engineering friends began recording her songs. 
As time went on, Hu started playing in bands, spanning genres of americana to samba to progressive rock. Talking about music, playing music, and being around music became a liberating new normal for her.
Years later, a meaningful conversation with a friend motivated Hu to restart a neglected album project. She delved back into the writing and recording process and hit things hard. Unfinished songs were brought back to life, and mixes were reworked again and again until they were complete. Finally, only a half an hour before New Years Day, "Late Reply" was deemed finished and uploaded for the world to hear.
The “Late Reply” album is a testament to all the hard work and passion Hu puts into her music, and where she is at with her sound right now.
With the release of the "Late Reply" LP, songwriter Parker Hu takes a few classic genres and gives them a spin all her own. Lush with addicting progressions, edgy but soulful vocals, and persistent pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative folk anthems. Although the songs are diverse, a glue holds them all together, much like any concept album would.
The first single, “Let You Chase Me”, is a near-perfect example of how to subtly captivate a listener. Opening acoustic guitar work creates a peaceful, relaxed feel, followed by a vocal melody that seems to linger for days on end. The stripped down nature of the track lets the song breathe as it plays on.
“The possibility of the unknown to fulfill what we hope to experience is what drives human fantasy", explains the songwriter of her single.
Although the single speaks volumes for the album, the LP should be heard in its entirety to get a real understanding of where Hu is coming from.
“Over the years, being around bands and musicians exposed me to different musical styles and instruments I never would have tried before. I started playing electric guitar for the first time and experimented with it during the writing process. It took those songs to a place I never would have expected,” says Hu of the songwriting process for the record.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around
