First Listen: Reggie Parker is playing just before "Midnight"

Share this article

    Gospel music lovers know bassist Reggie Parker from his years of touring and recording with such notables as the Reverend Hezekiah Walker and James Hall.  R&B and hip-hop fans have heard his distinctive bass lines accompanying Will Smith and Coolio, among others. Reggie has proven himself as an in-demand sideman many times over – now he’s finally stepping into the spotlight on his own.

    His new album SnapShots showcases Reggie honest, well-crafted lyric sense and gift for flowing melodies. “My songwriting basically comes from just living life,” he says. “I shied away from writing for a long time. Then one day I just gave it a shot and the music and words started to flow.  It all felt very natural.”

    Reggie shows his talent on the new single, "9 Minutes 2 Midnight," a jazzy soul number featuring vocalists Elizabeth Pegues and Yolanda Renee. It's a nice intro to the solo work of Reggie Parker and it is our newest SoulTracks First Listen. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
