"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.

Hey all! I just got home from shooting the promo and cover pics for my new project, The Back Porch Sessions, set for release on May 26!!! The pictures were shot by talented and respected photographer Jimmy Bruch, the man behind my first album cover, on location in Brooklyn, NYC! The fabulous Patricia Cameron beat my face (translation: did a good job on my makeup lol) and Jason Sky, as always, had me dressed like a rock star. Here are some behind the scene shots...more to come soon!!!
