Pop / EDM Artist, Matthew Parker, releases his first-ever Christmas EP titled IRWIN'S CHRISTMAS COLLECTION via DREAM Records. Self-produced, this comedic take on the holidays pays homage to Parker's experiences growing up in Michigan with a big family. Featuring fresh sounding production mixed with classic holiday sounds, this album is a must-have for the Matthew Parker fan and for listeners who are looking for something a little different this year. Parker shares some of his insight into making his Christmas album.
"Making a Christmas project has been a dream of mine for years. I've always wanted it to have some beautiful serious moments about the real Christmas story, but also a very healthy dose of the ridiculous and hilarious, and I think I pulled that off with this project and I couldn't be more excited for y'all (yeah, I live in the South now) to hear it and laugh and maybe cry. It's a wild ride, to be honest, but that's the best way! Hope you like it!" - Matthew Parker

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.
