Artist: Parker Matthews
Single: "Hit And Run"
How did you come up with the concept for your new music video, “Hit and Run”?
When I wrote “Hit and Run,” I pictured the video being at an urban house party and being the song that came in to 'save the night' and bring the party back to life.
What was your favorite part about filming? Any funny stories from the set?
I'd say my favorite concept about filming is coming up with the concept and actually being on set to bring that idea to life. I love to laugh, so we have fun on set, but one moment that sticks out was when I didn't realize how close to the edge I was on the pool table and rolled off during one of the takes. Painful, but funny.
What other bands/artists would you like to collaborate with?
I honestly believe that collaborations are so important in music. As artists, we bring what we have to the table in a collaboration and that's where the magic is made. I would love to work with some female rappers and make something fire!
What sparked your aural addiction?
I've always had a very close connection with music. I would say the defining moment of that connection was before I was even born. While my mother was carrying me, she attended a concert and she says I was kicking to the beat the whole time.
When you're lacking in inspiration, how do you kick start your creativity?
I get out and experience the world. I listen to what my friends are going through and draw inspiration from those around me.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself that not many people know.
While I take music and the art very seriously, I am also a huge goofball and am always cracking jokes to help keep the mood light!
What’s next for Parker Matthews?
I have much more material being released throughout the rest of this year, and this material really dives deep into who I am and what I really believe. I'm putting my vulnerability to the front and letting the world see a more vivid look into my life.
