Talk about sticking to your guns. As popular music morphs and see-saws through different styles every few years, Parthenon Huxley doggedly continues to do his thing, his way. Over a span of nine albums it's now abundantly clear that catchy songs built on sing-along melodies,
guitar hooks galore and real life-inspired lyrics are what Huxley was born to write. His latest album, This Is The One, may be his best yet.
"I occasionally get the itch to follow the latest computer-based trend," says Huxley, "but it never lasts. I came up when making records was an exotic business run by professionals. I'll always record with live musicians in real studios on the best equipment. I'm rarely fashionable, but my catalogue is pretty consistent."
As in, consistently lauded with awards and honors. Parthenon's first ever single, "Buddha, Buddha", which he produced just out of college in the
'80s, was called one of the "Ten Best Records Ever Made in North Carolina" by the Greensboro Record. Making the leap to the majors In 1988, Rolling Stone magazine called Huxley's Columbia album Sunny Nights "a monumental debut." Creative Loafing magazine named it “Album of
Huxley's 1995 indie masterpiece "P. Hux Deluxe" earned "Album of the Year" honors from pop bible Audities magazine. His unique take on the music of ELO--Homemade Spaceship--earned “Tribute Album of the Year” honors from the internet's largest indie community, JPF.
Back on the majors, "I Loved Everything" from Huxley's 2001 album Purgatory Falls (Universal) reached #1 on Rolling Stone's Exclusive Download Chart. As labels and artists adjusted to the internet age, Huxley turned to crowdfunding. His two most recent albums Thank You Bethesda and This Is The One were both funded by his fans through Kickstarter.
"My fans have been very faithful. Many of them are completists who own everything I've done. It's awesome to know they're out there."
Media also appreciate Huxley’s consistent sound. His music is heard worldwide in commercials, film and television. Songs by Huxley have been recorded by acts such as Foreigner, eels, Sass Jordan and Stevie Salas, all with chart success. Huxley has produced albums by Rusty Anderson (guitarist, Paul McCartney), Kyle Vincent and a young band from Bethesda MD called Arsonists Club among many others.
When not recording and performing his own music, Huxley tours the world as guitarist/singer for The Orchestra Starring ELO FORMER MEMBERS. He joined the band in 1998 when it was called ELO Part II. He produced the Orchestra album No Rewind. "I never dreamed of joining a classic rock band, but the opportunity came my way and I jumped on it. The Orchestra is a joy. Great bandmates, great songs, great fans. And we've performed in
forty or fifty countries. It lets me step in and out of my own creative process."
Huxley's own creative process has hit a new high with This Is The One. His latest album appeared on most of the power pop Best of 2018 lists and the first single, "Just Sayin'" brought Huxley a slew of new radio listeners.
