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!

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.
