Imagine if John Mayer and Maroon 5 met up and went to Motown. That’s the sound of Abe Parker music. His heartfelt lyrics, blues guitar-based beats and singable melodies create an original and infectious “bluerock” sound. Touring the Eastern United States, Parker has opened for acts such as Switchfoot, Andy Grammer, Jenny and Tyler, Ryan Star and Action Item. The release of his first Itunes album, Ninety Percent of Reality, and exclusive Ichthus release of his EP, Bluerock, was received with broad accolades. The unique vocal tone, wild guitar lines and clever chorus hooks of the Abe Parker live concert has proved the most memorable for fans and accelerating numbers of new listeners.
Abe's voice shines along with his guitar work and the result is top shelf. He combines his classical guitar and pop sensibility to create a unique and infectious "Blue Rock" sound. He views himself as genera-bridge musician, writing both catchy pop tunes and heartfelt songs that tug at the heart.
Abe has toured with Andy Grammer, Switchfoot, Ryan Star, The Afters, Andrew Ripp and David Crowder. His voice and style has been compared to Gavin DeGraw, Jason Mraz and Ed Sheeran.

MSJ has booked Abe Parker 4 times in 4 different venues & has not been disappointed once with his performance! Abe, a brilliant musician/songwriter, is also very down-to-earth and approachable. The students related to his songs & funny yet poignant stories. Abe has a way of getting the students to not just listen to his performance but become a part of it. He spent extra time before and after the show talking to students and swapping stories. A true class act!
