Song of the Day: “Secret Santa” by Parker Longbough

Today’s song is “Secret Santa” by Parker Longbough. Longbough the Anchorage, Alaska artist better known as Matthew Witthoeft created this track in response to the crime story of Josef F Boehm, Bambi Tyree, and Bill Allen.

Josef Boehm (61) was a millionaire founder of a large hardware store chain with locations across Alaska. In December of 2003 Anchorage police raided his Oceanview, Anchorage home to uncover a world of sex, drugs and underage girls. Boehm and his on and off girlfriend, Bambi Tyree (23), and two other men were charged with a conspiracy to give crack cocaine to girls as young as 13 in exchange for sex. Needless to say, this came as a shock to an Anchorage community that had viewed Boehm as a civic leader and philanthropist. Bill Allen, CEO of a large oilfield services was involved in the ring, and he ended up agreeing to wear a wire for the government in a corruption probe that jailed no less than 4 state legislators.

About Parker Longbough: In 2006, Commander Comatose, Parker Longbough’s first LP was released; Longbough’s mix of indie and electronic pop with lo-fi country was well received, with NPR saying, “Parker Longbough specializes in the sort of sparkling, decidedly urban-sounding guitar-pop commonly found in college towns. Throughout its songs, keyboards bubble under layered guitar lines and light, occasionally programmed beats.”

In June of 2017, Longbough released Bridges to Nowhere/Delirium in Lo fi. Longbough plans to release a new album, Left on Tri sometime early in 2018 that will include “Secret Santa” and eight other new tracks.
