Why Jonny Parks Is Superstar To Watch Out For
Coming out of the Big Apple, rising artist and songwriter Jonny Parks has consistently been making waves throughout the music industry. Parks’ path to musical superstardom started when he was sixteen, when he got his first guitar. He’d begin singing and writing his songs and perfecting his craft over the following years until he was ready to release his first album as an independent creator. Since the release of his debut album, Jonny Parks has been hard at work sculpting his unique sound, performing live shows, and frequently collaborating with other artists to build genuine relationships within the music business.
Jonny Parks’ choice to pursue a career in music comes as no surprise, given his strong musical background. Park’s family would frequently play R&B music throughout the house, and the smooth and sexy tone of the genre would, over time, infuse itself into Parks’ soul and later help to develop his signature sound. Jonny’s mother would always play music from the 60s and 70s and introduced a then younger Jonny to the sounds of musical legends such as Marvin Gaye and The Temptations. On the other hand, his father would stay more in the 90s era of R&B, introducing him to icons like Maxwell. To further develop Park’s exposure to the genre, his sister consistently played more up-to-date R&B artists such as Usher, Alicia Keys, Ashanti, and many more.
Coming from a tight-knit family, the family dynamic played a significant role in Jonny’s success as an artist; his dad played the most vital role in being Parks’ number-one supporter and mentor in music.
Being an independent artist has twists and turns; however, Jonny’s most significant complication in his career was processing the death of his father and his number one fan. “I know he’s with me daily, still rooting and giving me lessons.”
Jonny Parks’ inspiration to be the best at his craft stems from his family and friends that not only know his grind and struggle but have their own as well. It’s through their work, success, and achievements that inspire Parks to grind as hard as he does toward becoming an icon in music.
Jonny Parks has sharpened his musical skills intensely since the start of his career and strives to develop a deeper connection with his fans that go past the music. “After listening to my music, I want people to feel connected to me or the message. I want people to feel something. I want you to feel happy. Other times, I want you to reflect on things in your life that may make you feel away. No matter what feeling it is, I want people to feel connected to my artistry, writing, and production.”
To kick the year off strong, Jonny Parks’ new single, “Diamond in the dark,” will be released on January 13, 2023. “Diamond in the dark” is a feel-good song inspired by Afrobeat. “It’s a new year, and I want people to start just happy and having fun.” Follow Jonny Parks on Instagram and TikTok here and stream his previously released work.
