Louder Than Music

Mar 18 2020

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Veteran indie recording artist, Charles Parker (CMP Records, Baltimore, MD), is slated to release his fourth single, titled "When Jesus Calls," via all digital outlets and streaming platforms (Amazon/Apple Music/iTunes/ Pandora/Spotify/Tidal) on Friday, April 10, 2020. Music enthusiasts can take advantage of the "When Jesus Calls" Pre-sale Event by visiting orcd.co.
Co-produced alongside Frank Starchak, the self-penned emotionally heart-felt and uplifting redemptive track beams with big instrumental builds, spotlighting piano, cello, and string quartets reminiscent of Peter Gabriel, 70s rock guitar licks (a la Guns N Roses and Super Tramp) and choir vocals bold enough to raise the roof off a church. Working alongside award-winning musician Brent Mason, Parker lent his talents to perform on guitar and piano.

Music Mecca

Regardless of musical style, Charles Parker has lived something of the dream of most musicians: to make a living off of music, and not have to worry about a Plan B, or a fall-back gig.
Parker started off juggling multiple cover and tribute rock bands in the 80s and beyond, and essentially never looked back. Being born and bred in Charm City, Parker didn’t have the luxury of having an especially accepting culture around him for new, original music. But in the past handful of years, Parker has been able to work and record in Nashville, and weave his own music in the fabric of Music City.
