Parachutes

Parachutes is the solo project of Ryan Kemp, a 21-year old artist based in St.Paul. Parachutes is a cosmic gumbo of warm synths, punchy drums, fuzzy vocals, and lo-fi guitars that are encapsulated by a wave of saturated nostalgia and eclectic authenticity.

Parachutes' first memory of music was listening to the sweet melodies of the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, and folk music with his Grandpa. Throughout his formative years, he played guitar in various bands, but it wasn’t until his freshman year of college that he found his own voice. Forced to move out of his dorm and into quarantine, he started writing songs almost out of necessity. He taught himself how to play Bass and Synth and everything he could about producing, thus his aesthetic and unique style was created under the name Parachutes.

Parachutes' first EP will be released in August 2022.
