Tame Impala is Kevin Parker. His last album Currents was released in 2015 earning him a second GRAMMY nomination, a BRIT award, RIAA Gold-certification and word–wide critical acclaim. The New York Times labeled it a “a tour de force” while Pitchfork said “every song on ‘Currents’ is a revelatory statement of Parker’s range and increasing expertise as a producer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist.” In a 5 star review the Guardian said “Australian musical polymath Kevin Parker’s luscious new album takes psychedelic music into unknown territory” while Q magazine called it “Parker’s finest achievement yet”.
Hailing from Perth, Australia, Tame Impala have gone from playing small clubs to headlining festivals and theatres around the world and released three full length albums – Innerspeaker, Lonerism and Currents. As a writer and producer Parker has collaborated with Travis Scott, SZA, Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Kanye West, Kali Uchis, Theophilus London, Miguel, A$AP Rocky and more.
