During Loyolapalooza, Kat and I had the opportunity to sit down with Will, the leader singer from Parachute, who headlined our end of year festival this semester. He was the nicest guy and was super stoked to be playing a local show, as the band in from Charlottesville, Virginia. Will gave us a short and sweet interview telling you the things you want to know, from what it’s like to playing festival style shows to how he takes is coffee. Give it a listen and enjoy!
