Introducing Jason Parker, the radiant musical sensation whose pop-perfect vocals,
enrapturing lyrics, and electric performances have captured hearts around Aotearoa and beyond. In Parker's live shows he is joy personified, uplifting and inspiring audiences. His charismatic personality and camp fashion sense captivate fans, while his irresistible melodies keep them dancing all night.
Parker gained a taste of the spotlight in 2014 on X Factor Australia, where he received a standing ovation from judges Danni Minogue, Redfoo, and Ronan Keating, garnering over 2.8 million views on YouTube. Fast forward to 2021, when Jason wowed audiences on NZ Popstars with his first single 'You Rescued Me,' propelling him to begin work on his debut EP, 'How to be Lonely.' This 2022 EP spawned hit singles, with the title track peaking at #4 on the Hot NZ Singles charts and the crowd favourite 'This is My Year' winning best music video at the NZ Youth Film Festival.
Jason has opened for NZ artist Paige and in 2023 travelled the country with drag sensation Pinkie Promise on their Wear Something Pink tour. Parker's highly anticipated sophomore EP, 'Fairy Bread', is set for release early in 2024.
