Rissi Palmer in Rolling Stone!!! 

"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.

Soultracks.com gives "Sweet Sweet Lovin'" a First Listen! 



"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.

  • Little known Rissi fact of the day: Before receiving my first publishing deal in Nashville and starting my music career, I attended college at DePaul University in Chicago when I was 17. Even though @depaulu has a fantastic music department, I was terrified of the entrance audition so I wouldn't do it, opting instead to be a Communications and Marketing major. I left during my second trimester to pursue music full time and the rest is history. I loved Chicago for the short time I was there and am excited to return this Thursday, August 6 to play a show with the very talented @amyandrewsmusic at @elboroomlive 9pm. Tickets are $5 online and at the door. If you're in town, I hope you'll join us!!!

  • In honor of the exciting new life "Best Day Ever" (a song from my children's album Best Day Ever) is about to have, I decided to dedicate this week's #tbt to the making of this project, which occurred exactly 3 years ago this month.  The exciting news? I just approved the album cover for a compilation for a MAJOR greeting card company (hint hint) that "Best Day Ever" will appear alongside some Grammy award winning, popular children's artists. I'm excited!!! If you've never heard it, check it out here: http://msclvr.co/
