(May 14th, 2009 – New York, NY)  As the release date of their Mercury Records debut album LOSING SLEEP approaches on May 19th, Parachute rockets to #1 on iTunes' overall album chart!   The iTunes chart success comes on the heels of the band being featured as this week's free iTunes' "Single of the Week" and  LOSING SLEEP being included in iTunes' "Next Big Thing" new artist roundup.    
 
            Parachute’s first single is “She Is Love,” bulleted at #28 on the Hot AC Chart, while the video has been added to VH1.  The track is now in its third month of digital release with sales nearing 60,000.   As featured in Nivea Body’s Smooth Sensations tv spots (http://media.islanddefjam.com/Parachute/parachuteVAnivea1-27-09.mov), fans began recognizing “She Is Love,” and “Under Control” which tagged i-Tunes for purchase.  Also, Parachute was chosen “Adult Artist To Watch” at Clear Channel’s New! site in March.  To view the video, go to: http://video.islandrecords.com/premiere/artist/Parachute/She-Is-Love/14387892001, or the band’s MySpace website, www.myspace.com/weareparachute <http://www.myspace.com/weareparachute> .  
 
            Fans first heard “She Is Love” when Parachute kicked off the annual six-hour New Year’s Eve celebration at Times Square in New York City with a live performance.  On TV next month, their song “Back Again” has been confirmed for the May 19th episode of 90210’s season finally on the CW, while “She Is Love” was featured on One Tree Hill, May 4th.  And on May 30th, Parachute will perform “She Is Love” and “Under Control” on the CBS Early Show.  
 
            From the shade of the Blue Ridge Mountains comes Parachute: Will Anderson (guitars, piano, lead vocals), Kit French (saxophone, keyboards, vocals), Alex Hargrave (bass), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Nate McFarland (lead guitar, vocals).  Formerly known as Sparky’s Flaw, they began playing together in high school and later on as students at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.  Signed to Charlottesville’s Red Light Management, Parachute won a loyal grass roots following as they played over 200 shows along the east coast last year alone.
