Following an initial musical career as a drummer, Stevie Palmer decided to turn his full attention to the art and craft of songwriting.

The progression was always more than likely as Stevie grew up surrounded by his mother’s music (folk singer-songwriter Eileen Penman) and musical loves, as well as those of her partner and avid music collector Dougal Carnegie.

These influences covered a wide and varied terrain from Coleman Hawkins, John Coltrane and Abdullah Ibrahim to Dick Gaughan, Michael Marra, Dougie MacLean, Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark as well as a few hundred others in between.

Before fully embracing these Folk, Jazz and Americana roots, initially rebelling against them in the time honoured tradition, Stevie’s first musical love was black American music from the 1960s, largely via Motown and Stax record labels, with artists such as Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson never being far from earshot. From early on in his teens to the present day the music of Paul Weller has also figured largely.

Stevie’s songwriting story so far has been one of high achievement and steady progress. After finding initial success in various local songwriting competitions, he was selected as a National Burnsong Winner in 2007. A song written during his involvement in this adventure, Black Is The Sun, was soon picked up by Ian Green and included on the critically acclaimed Greentrax album Far, Far From Ypres.

Leading on from this success, Stevie was invited to record this first full album of original songs for Greentrax.

At times story-driven, and at times soothing and heartfelt, each song is tenderly crafted leaving melodies and lyrics that reach deep into the soul. The session musicians were carefully chosen for each song by Stevie. His diction is remarkable and his voice sits perfectly in front of the very sympathetic arrangements.

The album was recorded with great care and understanding by Ian McCalman at Kevock Digital, while the mixing and mastering by Stuart Hamilton at Castlesound Studios is also an excellent piece of work.
