Southern soul-pop artist Parson James has released his powerfully uplifting and insightful new single, -Temple' through RCA Records and Sony music Entertainment Australia.
Noisey.com calls the single, 'A rousing gospel-tinged pop number".
With heavy religious undertones and tales from the deep-south, Parson draws inspiration from his life growing up amongst the Bible belt as an openly gay teen in a bi-racial family. Subject to criticism and isolation in his hometown, Parson sought solace in his songwriting, and -Temple' explores such experiences and reflections.
Last week, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter performed -Stole The Show' with Norwegian DJ wunderkind Kygo on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The single, co-written by James, has already garnered an impressive 274 million streams on Spotify alone and continues to top the charts worldwide. Watch the stellar live performance by Kygo and Parson James here. The original version by Parson James is also available now on iTunes and Spotify.
Currently, Parson James is working on his debut album.
