Parker is a three time inductee into the National Thumbpicker’s Hall of Fame as the Horizon Award winner in 2014; Thumbpicker of the Year in 2015; and Recording of the Year in 2016.
Parker loves to perform and enjoys playing all styles of music, but considers his main musical influences to be, Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Merle Travis, as well as a long list of current guitar players. Parker’s first EP entitled “Whimsical Smiles” is a great selection of tunes with variety and energy, great picking, and sparkling guitar tone. In addition, it features Tommy Emmanuel as a guest soloist on Parker’s arrangement of Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile.” Parker released his second album in July 2017 entitled “Breezin Through Life”which is a collection of guitar music that demonstrates his evolving sounds and styles. It contains some original compositions and some of his favorite arrangements. Parker enjoys playing what he describes as “music to make you smile” and is excited to see where his musical adventure will lead him in the future.
