Matthew Parker’s Irwin’s Christmas Collection is an interesting EP with an edge, with each of the four songs being a distinct number in it’s own category—from the hilarious Mistletoe Meltdown to the speedy 12 Days of Christmas, to the thrilling Carol of the Bell with a James Bond vibe and danger element, to the worshipful Kindle that tells and honors the birth of Christ, there’s never a dull moment start to finish. Parker’s boldness in exploring multiple themes with his music presents a Christmas treat with delightful results.
For something special, something different, something fun, but with the Christmas spirit, Parker’s new drop is a ticket to such an experience.
*Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. Much appreciation to DREAM Label Group GM, Lance Brown, for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
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.
