Here’s a shot from Q’s new calendar. Some morning eye candy………
Grammy and ASCAP award winning singer/songwriter Q Parker is probably best known as the soulful heartthrob member of the the multi-platinum quartet “112.” With a string of R&B and crossover hits to their credit, plus nearly 20 million albums, millions of singles and countless ringtones sold, 112′s place is cemented in music history.
The present finds Q Parker focusing on developing his individual brand for longterm benefit. This includes recording as a solo artist, writing songs for other established artists, vocal coaching, providing artist development guidance to young talent and acting.
Constantly touring around the US and overseas, less than 24 hours ago he headed to Australia, the UK and Germany for a 30 day live performance tour with bandmate, Michael Keith of 112. Before he left we were able to squeeze some EXCLUSIVE details out of him.
On deck for a release in 2011 is Q’s highly anticipated, sexy, solo album entitled “Q Parker: The Manual.” He shared that a few months ago he was presented with three different record deal opportunities with large labels without even seeking a deal. After carefully thinking things through Q decided it made sense for him to take his time to create records he was really passionate about. Good thing he did, because taking the additional time helped him land timeless R&B heat from hitmakers Chuck Harmony (producer for Chrisette Michele and Ne-Yo), Oak Felder (producer for Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj) and Carvin & Ivan (production team for Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, Jaheim).
