Alex Parkman

Please introduce yourself real quick…


Alex Parkman.


What do you do?


I am a musician from Perth, Western Australia. I first started making music when I was 15. At the time, it was something new and cool to do that was fun. I saw other guys in the city doing it and I thought that I would give it a try. My friends and myself at the time just used to mess around rapping on instrumentals we found on Youtube. Over the years, I developed a passion for it and I got better at rapping. 5 years later, I decided to take it even more seriously and see how far I can really go with it.


What´s new right now?


I've recently dropped my debut song 'Brought Me Back'. It's been getting a lot of love since it's October release 2 months ago. It's been played on the radio here in Australia which was a pretty defining moment for me. It was incredible. I've also managed to see an increase in the people liking my music. I'm waiting on releasing something special on January 16th. I think that people will really love it.
In 2018, I plan on going for it all. I know what I can do and I have seen the support I've received from my fans to keep going and truthfully, that's pushed me to work even harder. I'm never going to let them down. I've also received countless messages from people all across the world who support me and in 2018, I just want to expand upon that even further. Seeing all the support from people really motivates me.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


That's a good one. I consider myself a newcomer myself, so I don’t know how much advice I can really give in terms of experience. However, I would definitely say that I didn't realise that just being honest with yourself can really help the quality of your music. Early on, I didn't realise this. It led to me producing work that wasn't my best. Now, i'm honest with everything I talk about. I feel like my fans really gravitate to this more. A bonus with that too is that it serves as relief to me, therapeutic if you will. I just get everything out and I feel a lot better about things.

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?


I would say finding a balance between everything in my life. It's hard to balance studying, music and maintaining healthy relationships. It just leads to a lot of frustration at times. You get through it though. It's all about managing.

We meet again in one year. What has changed?


I really don't know if I'm completely honest. I'm planning on travelling and meeting some great artists I've met through my music. Don’t get it confused though, I’m never going to shy away from admitting that I want it all. I'm not here to play any games. I’m going to take over everything.
