WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW: Dustin Parker is a music industry veteran. Raised in Memphis,
he started out as a runner for Transmaximum Studio (Booker T. and Steve Cropper's studio)
in the 60's, and later became a session guitarist for Stax Records.
In the 70s, he released three critically acclaimed albums and even enjoyed some chart success.
In 1981, he moved to Chicago, where he has remained a local club fixture ever since.
After a many-year hiatus, Parker started recording again and Tales From Centerville
is the fruit of his labors. "Centerville is a collection of stories that I want
people to be able to relate to, and that won't be boring musically," shares Parker.
