"Releasing Shadowlands is really amazing for me, because not only is it the product of literally countless hours of imagination, thought, sweat, and tears (Ok, maybe I didn't actually cry...), but it's also in a sense my thoughts and beliefs--not only lyrically, but musically too.
It's musically "me" in a sense. So it's exciting to see this finally reach people, and I'm looking forward to hearing how this impacts listeners. Onward and upward!"

About Matthew Parker:
Matthew grew up in lovely America. He grew up in the state shaped like a mitten…..also known as Michigan. He wasn’t especially interested in music as a little kid, but he was able to sing harmony without being taught. It was when he was about 12 years old that he really started in music. Up to that time he had taken piano lessons, but I’d never loved music the way he does now. But then his brothers and him got into jamming and making some noise with their drums and the other instruments they had. Around that time he had begun to learn to play guitar. So with all that fun stuff going on, he started writing songs on my own. They were naive and simple, and were definitely not rockin’ an’ rollin’, but they started him on a path to writing better and better songs. He got into recording the songs that he wrote he recorded his guitar, his keyboard, and his high-pitched voice and made some pretty nice projects for a 12-year-old. But they still sounded like home recordings.
Then, he got into making electronic music by fiddling around with Garageband. Once he outgrew the capabilities of Garageband, he upgraded to a new program called Reason, and he has been using it ever since. He has really grown to love making EDM and actually any kind of music on Reason. And finally, in the past few years he became part of a growing community of people from all around the world who are interested in Matthew’s music. With an effort to increase the value of Christian EDM out there, Matthew continues to enjoy being able to produce something unique. All glory to God for what He has done and will do. The future is bright.
