Songwriter Kam Parker shows “On the Come Up” why your lens should be focused on him.

Kam Parker

Kam Parker

Where are you from, originally?

Kam Parker: Atlanta, Georgia.

What sets you apart from other songwriters in the music industry?

Kam: I am educated; I am currently working on a college degree. In my mind, I am stuck in the 90’s musically. I grew up in that time. And I am not afraid to step outside of the box with lyrics and melodies.

What was your first introduction to the music industry?

Kam: I worked with producer Soundz and the group One Chance on the record, This One’s On Me.

How was working with Soundz and One Chance as your first major music industry experience?

Kam: It was interesting. Fun for sure. I was young and inexperienced. I was in college, 19 years old. I got used to it after awhile, though. My thought process was different after that experience.

You recently released the EP XXII. Describe why you chose that album title.

Kam: I turned 22 on April 22, which is the day that I released it. I feel that it’s a representation of me as a 22 year-old man from an emotional and physical standpoint.

Is there an album in the works?

Kam: An album is not in the works. I am working with other artists to build a tenure so that I can decide which direction I can go in instead of a label telling me. Still, you can stay up-to-date on my future projects through my website, KamParker.com and on Twitter at twitter.com/kamparker.

Which artist(s) do you aspire to work with, in the future?

Kam: Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Leona Lewis, Diane Warren, Musiq Soulchild, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyoncè, Kanye West and John Legend.
