Parker Posey

Parker Posey Dubbed “Queen of the Indies” by Time magazine, Parkey Posey’s cult following has been largely confined to the film world, where she's starred in a string of independent films including the recent “Broken English,” as well as generation-defining cult flicks such as “Dazed and Confused.” But she’s also dabbled in music, and we’re not talking about her role in “Josie and the Pussycats” (underrated movie, trust us). She sang in Christopher Guest’s “A Mighty Wind,” the role for which she reportedly learned to play the mandolin, and her vocals also appear on a 2003 Ryan Adams album, “Rock N Roll.” At the time, Posey was dating the alt-country artist, who began his solo career on indie Bloodshot Records. That same year, Posey showed off her mandolin skills on “Welcome to the Monkey House” by the Dandy Warhols.
