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  teen 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.

Sam has just returned from a trip to LA to meet  Joel and the MDDN team. He had an incredible intensive time collaborating  with producers and song writers Matt Squire, Hiser, and  Hooks. Sam hopes to get back to LA this year

New releases LOCAL PARADISE, SOFA BED, are on the MDDN record label as are his 2022 releases.

PARKER's tunes  Wasting Time can be found on the Triple J Unearthed .

2023  PARKER  got some lads together and  played  live.

Byron Bay BluesFest that  year was an absolute highlight. 

2024 brings a new line up and will soon be seen around the Gold Coast

playing with raw fizzing energy.  

PARKER is having a blast!

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.

I'm a huge fan now dude.

Not only the music but meeting the guy behind it.

Great work.
