Kevin Parker Career

Parker is a part of the large and diverse Perth music scene, where he plays in various different bands in addition to his main project, Tame Impala. Commenting on this, Parker said “it’s a really close-knit scene, quiet, separated from the rest of Australia” and “Tame Impala is just one sliver of the giant amount of noise-making that we do as a circle of friends. I don’t feel bad doing the recording by myself because I don’t expect that input in their bands…to us Tame Impala is just Kevin Parker’s project and everyone has a project.”

As a younger teenager, Parker had periods where he felt lost and alone, saying: “I didn’t have the most solid family life. I didn’t have a solid base to fall back on there, so I was tackling a lot of things on my own. And I was just lost. I remember thinking, ‘I’ve got no-one’. I remember once, when I was 15 or something, I was brushing my teeth, and I just broke down crying. I just felt so alone.”[14] Parker also felt that Tame Impala’s 2012 album Lonerism “validates” a lot of the feelings he had as a teenager. He said: “It’s got this weird hopefulness to it. Maybe that’s the charm of it. Maybe that’s why it’s done so well.”

Parker later had a job as a legal clerk, delivering court documents in Perth. While working there, he wrote songs in his head amidst the boredom. He later quit the job.

In addition to his work for Tame Impala, Parker was the drummer of Pond from 2009 until 2011. He produced the band’s studio albums Beard, Wives, Denim (2012), Hobo Rocket (2013), Man, It Feels Like Space Again (2015), The Weather (2017), and Tasmania (2019). As a producer, Parker has collaborated with artists such as Mark Ronson, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Travis Scott, Melody’s Echo Chamber, and the Flaming Lips.

Personal life

Parker was previously in a relationship with Melody Prochet of Melody’s Echo Chamber, having produced the band’s 2012 self-titled debut album. On 9 February 2019, Parker married his girlfriend Sophie Lawrence at a vineyard in Western Australia. Their first child, a daughter named Peach, was born in 2021. He currently divides his time between Perth and Los Angeles, where he owns a home in the Hollywood Hills.

Parker is a supporter of the Fremantle Dockers in the Australian Football League (AFL) and was named the club’s number-one ticket holder on 22 May 2021. To show his appreciation for the honour, Parker recorded an original “pump-up” song for the team that is meant to be played at its matches.
