Check out the official video for "Summerville" 


Today I am proud and excited to present to you all the video for my song "Summerville" from my EP The Back Porch Sessions. This video is special because it was filmed in Summerville, GA, birthplace of my mother, Poopoo, and my great grandmother, during my show there on June 25. Several members of my family make cameos in this beautiful piece. A huge thank you to the city of Summerville, my family, and to Caleb Childers at Malachi Films for capturing the magic of this place and its people. If you like it, share it.

Bring your kids and we will have a ball together!!! More details can be found at http://family.lincolncenter.org/events/artists-at-the-atrium-rissi-palmer

Happy Anniversary!!! 

It's hard to believe that a year ago this week The Back Porch Sessions was released...thanks to all of you!!!  It's been an incredible ride since then. I got to work with some of the best in the business and life. I found my voice and place in this industry as an executive producer, artist, singer, and a woman. I overcame the fear of releasing independently. The project has been featured in such publications as Rolling StonePeople Magazine, and Rolling Out Magazine. I was interviewed by Tavis Smiley and even Perez Hilton sang its praises!!!  Not too shabby for Team Little Engine that Could aka God is my Agent!!!   

I can't say thank you enough for making this all possible for me. Your contributions and faith sustained me then and keep me going today. I will be shooting a video for "Summerville" in the next couple weeks and I am excited to say that I am in the process of creating two new projects, a follow up to The Back Porch Sessions called Revival and a children's lullaby project called Seeds. I'll keep you posted on their progress and eventual release.  

Thank you all again, so very much!!!  Happy Anniversary!!!

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.
