Band members Will Anderson (vocals, guitar, piano); Johnny Stubblefield
(drums); Christopher "Kit" French (saxophones, keyboards, vocals); Alex Hargrave (bass); and Nate McFarland (guitar, vocals)
formed the band (originally coined Sparky's Flaw) in high school. They took root in Charlottesville, Virginia, a college town,
where the group was able to develop their mash of pop/rock, funk and contemporary soul. Sparky's Flaw began to generate buzz,
especially at the University of Virginia. They even opened for Robert Randolph. In 2005, they independently released their
first EP, One Small Step, which helped them to grow in popularity. They partnered with Red Light Management and inked a deal
with Smash Records later on. Prior to entering final year at the University of Virginia, they issued their eponymous EP in
August 2007 and went to work on a full-length album. Several months later the band adopted a new name (Parachute). In May
2009, the songs "She is Love" and "Under Control" from their album Losing Sleep were marketed in a campaign for Nivea. That
year also marked Parachute's major-label debut, and they peaked at No. 40 on the Billboard charts. The band garnered other
accolades and honors that year, including opening for Kelly Clarkson in the fall and appearing on the Internet broadcast of
Live at Daryl's House with Daryl Hall. The following year more touring took place both with Kelly Clarkson and headlines with
British songwriter, Joe Brooks. The band began including newer songs in their set lists and stepped back into the studio to
cut their sophomore album, The Way It Was in 2011. In 2013, their third album, Overnight, arrived.
Throughout the 2000s, Parachute has released both EPs and albums under their original name, Sparky's Flaw, and
the latter under the band name, Parachute. Their discography is comprised of the following: One Small Step (2005); Sparky's
Flaw EP (2007); Losing Sleep (2009); The Way It Was (2011); and Overnight (2013).
part of the Nivea campaign, Parachute shared the countdown stage with the Jonas Brothers and Taylor Swift in front of over
a million people in Times Square for New Year's Eve in 2008.
