He is also an accomplished composer, solo artist, & producer. Parish co-wrote and performed on Eels’ 2001 album Souljacker, and has worked with many different artists , Sparklehorse, 16 Horsepower, Tracy Chapman, Adrian Utley and Howe Gelb/Giant Sand   


PJ Harvey guests on “I’m Sorry for Your Loss,” a new song by her frequent collaborator and producer John Parish. The song pays tribute to Sparklehorse frontman Mark Linkous, who died by suicide in 2010. Parish produced Sparklehorse’s 2001 album A Wonderful Life.

Harvey and Parish sing morose lyrics like “The sun never felt colder/The window rattled and I wondered if you’d just passed over” amid strummed acoustic instruments and a sorrowful melody. The three-and-a-half–minute track will appear on Parish’s upcoming album Bird Dog Dante, which is due out June 15th.
