I had an amazing time today at the Tavis Smiley show. Everyone was super nice and accommodating and Tavis was awesome of course. Thank you to my publicist extraordinaire Schatzi and Sasheen for making this happen. My episode will air on PBS this Friday (Oct. 9) night. Check the show website for how to watch in your area: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/tavissmiley/
"Palmer is living in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband and their daughter and making trips back to Nashville to develop her new music — with its neo-soul-to-throwback-southern-R&B sound and down-home, confessional point-of-view — when and how she wants to. "It's a different vibe," she explains, sitting at a picnic table on the porch behind the 5 Spot. "The country's still there, because that's still a part of me. But this project is definitely more intentionally soul." - Jewly Hight
Thank you so much Jewly and Rolling Stone Country for this awesome article. You can check it out HERE.
If you missed it live last week, I had a wonderful interview with Charlie Mattos on WSM Radio in Nashville. You can check out the podcast of the interview and my live performance of "Summerville" from my new EP, The Back Porch Sessions HERE!
I have been looking forward to this show for a while now and getting this rave review has amped me up even more!!! If you are in Nashville I hope to see you at the 5 Spot tonight (Sunday, June 14) at 6pm. The cover is $10 and it's sure to be a great time!!! In the meantime, check out the review HERE...
"Singer-songwriter Rissi Palmer may be seen by some as an anomaly, an artist whose music is an interesting mixture of soul and country. But as we’ve written about before, the two genres have much more in common than some folks think. Storytelling and a keen sense of melody spell the best of both genres, and Rissi has plenty of both in her music."
Thank you so much to SoulTracks.com for their review of "Sweet Sweet Lovin'". Check it out HERE.
Here's a throwback performance from the studio in August 2014, when Shannon Sanders, Drew Ramsey, and I were writing and recording songs for The Back Porch Sessions. We had just written "Anything But Yours" and decided to get it on tape. Hope you enjoy!!!

It's pretty awesome to be mentioned in this group of amazing women as a "trailblazer". I am proud of what WE (my team and I) were able to accomplish and I'm excited to share my new music with the world VERY soon. I'm also proud of Mickey Guyton...she's about to be HUGE.
