Q & A’s with Parker Polhill
Who is Parker Polhill?
I’m just a kid from Atlanta trying to express myself through music.
Do you think your upbringing has contributed to your style as an artist?
Definitely. Atlanta has a strong hip-hop/rap and R&B influence that I love and has contributed to my music. Also, I come from a good family that encouraged me to pursue my passions. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I didn’t have a supportive family.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice I’ve ever received in terms of music is to fall in love with the process. It takes time to build something great. Everyone who has gotten their break reflects about the come up as much as anything else. The struggle and process to success is the story you’ll tell for the rest of your life!
Are you working on any new music right now?
YES! I have big plans for 2020
Is there any artists or producers you’d love to work with?
Tons. The first that come to mind are Big Sean, Drake, Chris Brown and Ty Dolla Sign. I’m a big fan of them.
Where can we expect to see you in 5 years?
Lord willing you’ll see me in a different city/country every week playing shows for an ocean of people singing my songs back to me.
What’s your idea of success as an artist?
I feel like it’s hard to gauge success in art. Obviously, there is the money side so if you’re making money that’s a good indicator but for me it’s more about putting art out that connects and pulls emotion out of people. I’m just trying to sing music around the world with a room full of people.
When will you feel like you’ve made it?
My first world tour. That’s the dream!
