Since their 2013 inception, Paralandra has hit the ground running. The band hails from Springfield, MO and is led by father and daughter, Paul and Casandra Carson. They were later joined by local friends and musicians, bassist, Sawyer Rikard, and drummer, Dakota Watson, to form their dream lineup. 2014's self-made album "Rise Up" launched the band into the forefront of the rock scene attracting the attention of Legend Recordings. Under the umbrella of Legend, they have released two EP’s, a standalone single, and a full length album. EP’s include "All Fall Down" (2016) and "Ascension" (2018) which feature singles “All Fall Down”, “Back to Life” and “Killer Queen”. Their standalone single "Love Will Win" (2019) spawned a legion of new fans as it topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts, and has become an anthem for all. In 2021, they cut a full length album “Street Magic” with world-renowned producer, Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Alter Bridge, Slash, Sevendust, Mammoth WVH). Multiple singles raced up the billboard charts including "Despicable", “Only Human” and “For the Record”. While the entire album has generated tremendous streaming success, "For the Record" has surpassed 2 million views and streams with no end in sight. They are slated to re-enter the studio with Elvis Baskette in Spring of 2023 for a follow up album consisting of 10 songs.

Paralandra has performed at numerous festivals including Rocklahoma, Dirtfest, Rock Fest, NAMM, SXSW, and the KISS Kruise. Nationally, they have supported Yngwie Malmsteen, Tantric, Saliva and Dokken, just to name a few. Locally, nationally, and internationally, Paralandra has asserted themselves as a top contender in the music industry of today and
continue to win over every audience.
