As part of our Go create project, we’ve partnered with some of the most exciting contemporary creators to get a close-up on the creative process in all its shapes and colors. To launch the project, we’re thrilled to announce our first creator in the series: the soulful British singer/songwriter/sensation, Arlo Parks.
After wowing a record label scout with poems recited to Garageband beats in 2017, Parks has quickly wowed the music industry and fans alike with her debut album, Collapsed in Sunbeams (2020). At just 20, Parks brings a fresh, ethereal sound to poignant topics with a breezy but poetic flair. The Brit award’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year has earned the praise of everyone from Elton John and Billie Eilish to Michelle Obama.
We followed Parks’ through her creative process as she captured inspiration with her Polaroid Go Camera and turned it into a poem. Then we sat down to get her taken on the creative process.
