Welcome

No Pardon is a rippin' folk music trio born in Eureka CA. Comprised of singer-songwriters Chris Parreira (guitar) and Rosalind Parducci (fiddle), and Amber Grimes on stand-up bass, this band was conceived in January 2016. No Pardon features conceptually fluid songwriting; they are groove-tight, and inexorably creative.

Parreira's rhythm guitar is chunky and delectable, an articulate mash-up between folk, funk, and country. Imaginative and other-worldly fiddling brought to you by the musical mad scientist, Dr. Parducci. And undeniably, it's all about that bass, with Amber Grimes holding it down- she pays the band's gravity bill.

Angels of February

We are in studio once again, working on a OUR FIRST FULL-LENGTH ALBUM in a warm little sound cabaña in Eureka.... here's a sideways glance at Earnest, our most estimable bass, keeping the digital cockpit company between takes.

Exciting to feature the drums of Sam Kaplin-Good on this album, among other lovely tones. Getting a bit of an indie rock edge in some of our new songs.

I'm so pleased with the progress we are making. Can't wait to share it with everybody.

Stay tuned,

Rosalind & the No Pardon crew

Hello friends! 

Greetings from your favorite Humboldt acoustic trio! It's been quite the summer in California, and right now even on the coast the air is thick with smoke from inland fires. All that heat can't stop the music, and we're preparing for some sweet shows in the next month. 

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has offered us their support, both on tour last spring, and throughout the past year and 8 months of us being a band. It means so much to us to be able to continue to share our music with the world, and y'all are the reason we keep doing what we're doing. 

We are stoked to let you all know about the arrival of the first batch of official No Pardon band shirts! Check out our designs, and click HERE to pre-order yours now! 



 

Special thanks for our May tour go out to Lila Nelson, Sam at The Backroom, Fred Hoeffler, Aimee Takaya and the Ontario crew, Randy Mandy, Andrew & Bethany the wonderful folks in Knight's Ferry, friends from the Landers Brew Company, our Nevada City peeps, The Shanachie Pub, and all of YOU for your continued support! We hope you dig the new schwag and hit us up for some No Pardon style. 

More tunes coming soon! 

All the best, 

Rosalind, Chris, and Amber

New EP! 

Last month we put together a 7 track EP, recorded live with Tim Gray of Myrtletown Records. 
The EP opens with a traditional American Old Time fiddle tune set, Pretty Pollyanne/Say Old Man Can I Have Your Daughter? and features 5 original tracks, and a cover of Roland Orzabal's Mad World (Tears for Fears).
Cage (track 2) and Sugar & Stone (track 7) were written by Chris Parreira. Live Forever, Collision, and the instrumental, Funk in the Trunk, were written by Rosalind Parducci. 
We will be celebrating our EP With a release party on Tuesday, May 10 at the Siren Song Tavern. 
We enjoyed our studio time, and are proud of the live takes we recorded! We hope you enjoy! 

Also, if you haven't seen it yet, check out our video of Live Forever, filmed and edited by Chuck Johnson of Humboldt Live Sessions. We had a lovely afternoon filming this in March, on a yar sailboat named Yara!



Cheers!

A New Adventure 

What a start to 2016! Our new project, No Pardon, is comprised of three worldly imaginations brought together through a rather fascinating chain of incidents and coincidence. We will be performing in and around the Eureka area in the next few months, and we are excited to share our music with you! Check in for updates on shows on our tour page.

Also, there's this cool video we put together a little while ago that you might wanna see...
