Artist of the day: Sound Parlor
Led by multi-instrumentalists Danny Scordato and Alex Merrill, both 14, the group was joined last year by drummer Andrea Tafelski, 15. Their sound is already impressive. On their debut self-titled album, Beatles fanatics Danny and Alex have cultivated a sound that's impressively beyond their years -- think Rufus Wainwright, Paul McCartney or Todd Rundgren. In addition to their well-crafted originals, they mix in plenty of classic rock covers, too.
You can see the trio this weekend in a free show at the St. Petersburg Pier. They'll perform with Ella Jet at 1 p.m.
