Kidsday reporters April Todaro, Erin Deytiquez, Maggie Cotter and Christie Greff met with members of the band Parachute in Manhattan recently.

Band members Kit French, Alex Hargrave, Johnny Stubblefield, Will Anderson and Nate McFarland sat with us for about half an hour to tell us about their career, which started when they were in high school together.

Our favorite song on their latest album, “Losing Sleep,” is “She Is Love.” Kidsday reporter Maggie is certain it is about her! We really enjoy their music. Check out their MySpace page: myspace.com/weareparachute.
