In the early days of quarantine, I was invited by Skylar Gudasz and Southern Cultures to record a song that brings me comfort. Comfort is a commodity these days...Anyway, I performed a song that has meant a lot to me and wanted to share it with you all.

We’re proud to present Rissi Palmer as a part of Music in Your Gardens, a free eight-week online concert series showcasing nationally renowned artists who call Durham and the surrounding area home. The series shifts Duke Performances’ longtime summer series, Music in the Gardens, normally held outdoors at Sarah P. Duke Gardens on Duke’s campus, to an online format in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Wednesday, August 19 at 7 PM ET, we’ll premiere a new, specially recorded performance by Rissi online, free of charge, on our website and on our YouTube page. The film, pre-recorded in a socially-distanced manner, will be accompanied by a live YouTube chat with Rissi, who will answer questions from viewers.
Duke Performances presents Music in Your Gardens in collaboration with Duke Arts, WXDU, Sarah P. Duke Gardens, Duke Continuing Studies, and Duke Summer Session. Hospitality partners include The Palace International and Locopops.
I am honored that Pierce Freelon asked me to be a part of this beautiful family album. Children’s music has been a love of mine since I became a mommy; the messages that our children get are SO important. Pierce and I collaborated on the song “My Body (Body Autonomy)” (along w/ my daughter Grace and Nico Ocaña Sonic Pie Productions), a song teaching kids about consent. Added bonus: you get to hear me rap for the first time ever 🤣 Everything I’ve heard on this album is wonderful and I hope that you’ll support when it’s released on July 31. The first single, "Daddy Daughter Day", arrives on Sunday, June 21...Father's Day!!! Click HERE to presave the single and album.
