HOW LOVE WORKS
Its a cranking seaside ride for emerging Gold Coast singer songwriter PARKER.
His snappy tunes combine Pop, Rock and Surfside with a dash of teen angst.
His tracks speak truth to the rough and raw emotions of youth.
PARKER is the project of 17 year old multi instrumentalist Sam Lethbridge. Inspired by DMAs, Dominic Fike and The Smiths. Sam jumps head first into the creative process, curious to experiment with all music making platforms.
HUNKY DORY his debut EP was released in 2021 and also launched digitally as an NFT on the Cardano Blockchain.
This innovative music sharing approach led to crossing paths with Joel Madden from Good Charlotte and the MDDN team. The mentorship, encouragement and support they offer Sam is invaluable. Releases LOCAL PARADISE, HOW LOVE WORKS, MELANCHOLY WAY and ISLE OF MADNESS are all on the MDDN record label.
PARKER's tunes How Love Works, Melancholy Way and Wasting Time can be found on the Triple J Unearthed platform.
His animated music video for How Love Works was a finalist for the Creative Generation Award in Queensland.
Recently PARKER got some lads together and has been playing live.
Byron Bay BluesFest this year was an absolute highlight, playing Saturdays lineup as a semi finalist for the Grommet Bluesfest Busking competition
Playing with raw fizzing energy. PARKER is having a blast!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Dave Ruby Howe
Triple J Musical Director
Really encouraging signs from Parker. Snappy seaside indie vibe and that he's only 15 makes me think the best is yet to come from this dude.

Not only the music but meeting the guy behind it.

A cool Friday night in the Basement at HOTA starts with four-piece PARKER. These lads are still in high school but doing some great originals with their youthful energy, hitting the right notes, and giving us their own unique cover of INXS Don't Change. Lead singer and songwriter Sam Lethbridge is just starting but someone to watch
