About National Park Radio:
Radio’s music reverberates important themes about life, love, and difficult choices, all while echoing the enduring beauty of the band’s deep-seated roots in the Ozark Mountains. Formed in Harrison, Arkansas in 2012, National Park Radio, headed by singer/songwriter Stefan Szabo, have infused the surrounding region (and many others as well) with their unique brand of indie folk music.
Emerging from the shadows cast by giants Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists, and the Avett Brothers, NPR offers the indie folk world something a little different: An outstanding blend of incisive songwriting and organic Americana charm, alongside a heritage in genuine mountain music.
The release of their first album, The Great Divide, in 2016 immediately created enthusiasm as the first song, titled to match the name of the album, drags you straight to your feet and sweeps you up in the energy of this and the rest of the folk anthems that follow. In 2017, the band released their second album, Old Forests. It has been abundantly clear that this is not your typical Americana/Bluegrass/Folk band. As stated in Elmore Magazine, “Feelings of hope, joy and inner beauty bound through the perfect marriage of lyrics and music.” NPR’s song “Mighty Mountains,” says “not unlike my father mighty mountains call my name,” and just like that, how can one not listen to what else nature may have to say.
