About Matthew Parker:
Matthew Parker grew up in mitten-shaped Michigan, USA. He wasn’t especially interested in music as a kid, and it wasn’t until he was about 12 years old that he began to discover how much he loved making music. He and his brothers took to “jamming” in their tiny upstairs attic on junky electric guitars and a trashy yellow drumset. He could soon play guitar, bass, drums, and piano, and of course he could also sing with his little 12-year-old choirboy voice. His interest quickly shifted from simply playing instruments to recording his own original songs in his makeshift home studio. All was well until he fiddled around with some synthesizers on a program called Garageband, and his world was forever changed. Electronic sounds intrigued him and would become a huge part of his unique sound. His notoriety as a Christian EDM producer and artist came when, over the course of a few years, he grew a loyal fanbase online and performed well in a few remix contests. In early 2014, Matthew signed with Drom Records and began planning his biggest and best album yet. Shadowlands is the first album he will be releasing with Drom, and there are more on the way. Matthew wants to give all glory to God for what He has done and will do. The future is bright.

As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
