I AM DONNIE PARKER
Born African and Mexican decent and raised in California's Bay Area, Donnie Parker has had music streaming through his blood from the beginning. His mother, obsessed with soul and RnB, surrounded her family with music, singing along with anyone else that would care to take part. Parker’s father (although not fully present for his younger days) was the lead vocalist of Gary, Indiana soul act The Lost Boys. Now, together with long time producer HellaMelody, Parker is ready to bring his own, hip-hop inflected modern take on the music he could sing before he could write; the New Blues.
