SHOW ME THE MONEY - EARL PARKER AND THE RAVENS
Creativity spreads across boundaries and borders, and a true artist can easily contribute his talents to music, modern art, writing, and film—which briefly explains George Earl Parker.
London-born, Parker may have lent his multiple skills to animation and motion graphics to begin his career, but in his heart he was always yearning to write and sing great pop songs.
“Show Me the Money” by Earl Parker and The Ravens, produced and arranged by David Day, is the amazing result of two highly creative artists. An album that combines rock, pop and country seamlessly, it touches frankly on a variety of subjects: from romance, sex, heartbreak and friendship to the human yearning to take chances.
Parker is used to taking chances; he’s already written two novels: The Atomic Kid—Adventures in the Antiworld and Vampyre Blood—Eight Pints of Trouble. And he’s in the midst of writing and recording the unique songs for The Atomic Kid, a coming-of-age adventure with a science fiction twist.
Early rock fans may remember the Frantics (they toured with The Who and The Yardbirds) or Whitehorse—who played with Van Halen on the Sunset Strip. Those bands exemplify just some of David Day’s wide variety of musical experience: a guitarist, at home with all instruments, his producing & arranging talents helped Monique Wells have three songs hit and move up the Country Music charts last year.
Day praises Parker’s “phenomenal writing talents,” which, he says, are reminiscent of Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Johnny Cash. “Every song is emotional and tells a story we can all relate to.”
“Anywhere You Touch Me” is a sensual evocative song, while “Pieces of You” is a painful anthem of lost love. “Crazy Enough to Do It” encourages us to dream: “Half the job is knowing what you want and getting to it; the other half is just being crazy enough to do it!” And Parker humorously cheers the listener on: when life doesn’t work quite the way you want, “Try a Change.”
“Show Me the Money” is an album that stimulates the intellect, satisfies the emotions and leaves you waiting for more.
