Mitch ParksThe music industry
During the February 2017 guest speaker symposium, Laurel Springs students had the pleasure of hearing from Mitch Parks, American musician, record producer, and songwriter. He is perhaps best known as the former lead vocalist for Grammy Award- and Dove Award-nominated rock band “After Edmund.”
His musical endeavors began in school bands and church ensembles. Mitch graduated from LaGrange College in 2007 with a Bachelor’s Degree in music. He began writing and producing professionally not long after. He recorded and toured internationally with After Edmund from 2006 to 2014.
He is currently touring as Musical Director and bassist for Dove Award-winning artist and songwriter Matt Maher.
Mitch’s presentation focused on “making it” in the often difficult-to-navigate music industry.
