Blue Ridge Parkgay

Chasing hits, writing songs for others, and pushing his ambitions down the road led Blue Ridge Parkgay to reconnect with his own music in the Blue Ridge Mountains. A native of North Carolina, BRPG found his love of music in the Baptist church, where two generations of matriarchs directed the choir and played piano. This foundational experience defines his music as he sheds external expectations and blends his southern roots and LGBTQ pride in his song “Where I’m From.”

“…the hatred and bigotry permeating this area is in direct opposition to the beauty of this land.. The largest population of LGBTQ+ people in the country lives in the southeast (over 35%!), and there is something so powerful about that. We thrive in a way that is rebelliously beautiful.”
