Parkes Stewart – “Wanna Be Heard”

Hearken back to a period in time when that smooth Motown sound delighted the ear. In the golden years, there was a message in the music, as Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, and Stevie Wonder proved, the lyrical content could almost be…spiritual. Like a man born out of his time, this artist delivers music that is heartfelt, spiritual Soul and R&B that evokes comparisons to the greats of Rhythm and Blues that influenced him. Similarly, gifted lyrically, he takes smooth to a new level linking old school flavor with new school vibe.

If the name Parkes Stewart is both familiar and unfamiliar, it’s because he has written songs for other artists such as:

1. “Cry On” for 112 on the tribute to Notorious B.I.G. (over 4 million copies sold)

2. “Open Arms” &”More than Just A Melody” for Yolanda Adams

3. “Ordinary Just Won’t Do” performed by Dave Hollister

4. “I Am Here, No More Loneliness”& “Victory” for Commissioned

Parkes  Stewart sings and writes a thrilling combination of spiritual soul and R&B music that seamlessly blends songs of longing, pain, love, and hope. Parkes explains that his objective to be the (“nexus” meaning connection) linking our humanity and spirituality. His intention is to look for the purity in the love relationship between husband and wife, man and brother, and man and God. Parkes music has something for everyone, for people who have experienced divorce, the young person with potential who just needs a helping hand, and for the burdened soul who needs God.

For Parkes, it has always been more than music. It is about keeping it real and dealing with issues that are usually swept under the carpet. The music then becomes not just an expression of what he does, but is something he truly is.
