Sporting glorious harmonies and a sunny sheen (as their name suggests), the Sun Parade's songs display a high degree of pop sophistication.

The Sun Parade is a new group from the Northeast that have risen to the top of the regional radio charts in New England. Their tune “Need You By My Side” was named “Top Song of 2011” by WRSI 93.9 and 101.5. The band is the duo of Chris Marlon Jennings and Jefferson Lewis, who are long-time friends and thus can march in perfect musical lockstep with each other. Sporting glorious harmonies and a sunny sheen (as their name suggests), their songs display a high degree of pop sophistication. Now the two have made a video for “Need You By My Side”, which we premiere for you today. You can also catch the Sun Parade at the Plant & Sing festival in the Hamptons and the Green River Festival in Greenfield, MA.
