2017 was quite the year for DRÖM artist Matthew Parker. He saw his sophomore album Adventure stream over 10 Million times, and 3 of his singles became top 5 Billboard Christian Hot AC / CHR singles ("Adventure" - #3, "Never Giving Up On You" - #2, "I Won't Look Back" - #4). Not slowing down, Parker decided to release the music video for "Never Giving Up On You" as well. Matthew explains why he wrote his hit:
"There have been many times in my life where I've felt like I've gone too far and God couldn't forgive me because, well, let's just say that 'I'm not perfect' is the understatement of the year. But that just makes me all the more grateful, all the more in awe that God wants to be with me in spite of my flaws, in spite of the many times I've turned my back on Him. That's what true forgiveness looks like." - Matthew Parker

Not to be outdone by 2017, 2018 is already shaping up to be a good year as Parker contributed 2 tracks ("Miracles" & "Till The End Of Time") for the upcoming God's Not Dead: A Light In Darkness film (coming out March 30th). "Miracles" has just been released to radio.
ABOUT MATTHEW PARKER:
Matthew Parker grew up in a small town in Michigan. He wasn't especially interested in music as a kid, but that all changed at age 12 after learning guitar and jamming with his brothers for a while, when music really "clicked" for him. He began writing and recording his own songs on the family computer, and slowly got into making electronic music. Fast forward 10 years, and Matthew has released a good plethora of many styles of music and has garnered attention not only for his original music, but also for his remixes of Capital Kings, Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Jonathan Thulin, and more. With many fans in the States and a small army of fans worldwide, things can only go up for Matthew, who is enjoying every little bit of this crazy adventure.
