Rissi Palmer LIVE...in YOUR house!!! 


Imagine: you, your friends, and fellow music lovers, eating good food (maybe a little wine), with me playing in the background, telling the stories behind the songs, and having a ball...all in the comfort of your own home! What's not to love?!?!? I've never done anything like this before, but feel it's the perfect way to bring together the two things I love about performing: singing and interactin
g with the listeners. 

In addition to festivals and clubs, I am now booking house/corporate shows for November (just in time for the release of my Christmas EP...hello holiday parties!!!) through the rest of the year and into 2016, so if you're interested in hosting a show or have more questions about pricing & requirements, please message me HERE.

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.

Live from the Back Porch...
