    The JW Parvin Interview

    in Radio

    Pleasure to meet you, allow me to introduce myself.... My name is JW Parvin. I guess it all started for me at a young age, when I was asked to join the church choir in my small hometown. Soon enough, I was asked to do solo's. I was very nervous at first, but soon my love for performing overtook my "jitters". I remember singing my mom's favorite hymn "O' Victory In Jesus". As I got older, I was always the boy in the mirror rehearsing with a hairbrush and belting it out with the radio. Later in high school, to my surprise, I was asked to lead some guys in a talent contest! We did a cover of George Strait....HAD A BLAST...but, did not win!!! Some of my favorite memories, are of having my friends over and singing along with the radio as if we were putting on a show. Growing up, my Mom and Dad had a place on a lake for years and in my teenage years I would sneak out to the bar and sing with the band. For me, there was nothing like the feel of being on stage in front of a crowd!!! I would get so caught up in the music that I would find myself on top of tables, doing my best to get the crowd involved and on their feet. I have to say... It worked well too. Eventually is discovered Karaoke contests and to my amazement, I won the second one i ever competed in. I really love to entertain. After winning several contest, I then put together a band and started doing live shows practically every weekend, and sometimes twice per weekend. The tremendous praise I receive from a great performance is so flattering to me even after all these years. I have quite a few loyal followers, who keep me inspired. To me there is no better feeling than putting life into words through my music. I guess thus far the highlight of performing for me was playing at the Talladega Super Sppedway for the campers and race fans. When you have thousands of music lovers singing with you and cheering you in it is beyond a natural high and there is no comparison. To take my talent to a higher platueau.
