Christian Parker’s “Every Passing Mile,” released Friday, is being distributed in part by The Orchard, a leading independent music distributor and part of Sony Music.
But that’s only the beginning project for Mr. Parker, who, after going back to his older tunes, is remixing and remastering six albums this year, making weekly trips to Subcat Studios in Syracuse for the task.
As a Waydown Wailer, Mr. Parker (“Moe”) is usually quietly in the background playing guitar. His older brother, David, is the band’s lead singer. Canton-based Waydown Wailers, which has opened for such acts as Lady Antebellum, the Charlie Daniels Band, Devon Allman, New Riders of the Purple Sage and Spin Doctors, is rounded out by Connor Pelkey, bass and backing vocals, and Michael Scriminger, drums.
