DYI Spotlight: Parker Matthews

Indie-Pop artist Parker Matthews first discovered his dream of becoming a singer-songwriter while watching Whitney Houston’s legendary 1994 Grammy Awards performance. Since then, he developed his own unique sound, taking inspiration from Houston’s iconic style and presence.

Matthews found solace in music, using it as an escape from the harsh realities of his life. He had been a victim of bullying while simultaneously struggling with depression, which over time shaped him into the thoughtful songwriter he is today.

As such, Matthews emerged as a powerful advocate for suicide prevention and anti-bullying by supporting organizations such as The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the LGBTQ+ community. He constantly aims to spread fortitude and acceptance through his music and lyrics, striving to be a positive force.

His debut single “Lost With You” showcases his musical maturity in a poignant pop anthem that highlights his dynamic vocals and songwriting skills.  The song describes the feeling of falling in love for the first time and allowing yourself to be completely vulnerable.

Recently, Matthews has been featured in publications such as AXS, Indie Minded, Audio Fuzz, Listen Here Reviews, and others. Parker Matthews is trying to drive pop music to the next level, one single at a time. In fact, his second single, “Hit & Run” comes out later this month.
