If you only had one day left, would you know what to do with it? Singer songwriter Christian Parker asks the listener this very question in his new single, ‘Dream Catcher’. The track comes with a lush lyric video that serves for the listener as a means by which to adopt it as a mantra.
Christian Parker has been writing and releasing music for nearly 30 years, and over that time he has continued to bring a fresh perspective into his sound, in order to appeal to each audience of the day. There is an integral beauty to Parker’s music, and his lyrics travel the entire spectrum of human emotions, allowing every listener a chance to hook into the song and relate to what he’s saying. He describes himself as the “watchman on the wall”, and it’s clear why from his discography, with his wry observations and experiences shaping his music and taking him from uplifting folk to glorious pop hits.
With ‘Dream Catcher’ Parker contemplates where our minds go when we sleep, and in fact, his lyrics feel like a late-night epiphany, a revelation. With delicate acoustic instrumentals and his soft vocals, the song could easily double for a lullaby, and the accompanying lyric video shows us a glimpse into the artist’s own mind, with sweeping visuals taking us from the deepest oceans to the highest mountains. Mystical, mysterious, and sensual, ‘Dream Catcher’ will not just catch your dreams, but catch your imagination.
