This is the debut album by Canadian Idol Josh Palmer! With the release of his new self titled album, summer 2006, we're offering a chance to own this portrait of a growing artist for one last time! We have only a very limited number of album's making this a very very rare record! Here is Josh's bio from 2002 giving you a glimpse of where he began!
Palmer; for the 2002 Saskatchewan Star Search winners, its about time that this brother, sister combination band got off the ground. They've played together and in various bands, with many other musicians since their early teens, but 2 years ago focused and embraced the inevitable and have seen that there's no stronger bond between musicians then family. It just feels right, and the music feels even stronger. The band has been cutting through the Western Canada's bar scene and is carving out their own sound with their first Full Length CD "Fall In June" just about to released. There's a Universal sound to their music that catches you and won't let go. From blues to roots rock, to jazz, to funk and pop, their musical roots run deep.
Josh Palmer ( 19), lead guitar and vocals. Playing professionally since he was 14, Josh showed a breathe taking poise and maturity far beyond his years, and is continuing to grow into a complete artist and songwriter. He's learned from some of the best, taking everything in. His influences ranging from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Hendrix, BB king, Albert King, Colin James, Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder and Doyle Bramhall II, have deeply been rooted in his style of playing and singing. He has been as a guest artist on stage many times with Big Dave Mclean, David Gogo, Jordan Cook Band, The Franky Lee Band, The Paul Tobin Band, The Russel Jackson band, Nigel Mack and the Blues Attack, Lou Pride, Texas Flood and Suzzie Vinnick. Josh has hosted many jams since he was in his early teens, including Buds on Broadways, and has played with many talented musicians all over Saskatchewan.
Tanya Palmer ( 17), Bass and vocals. Taking to the bass at an early age, her playing and influences grew just as quickly as she was becoming a teen and has grown into a solid funky bassist and aspiring songwriter. Her first band Bluesway Express, gave her many opportunities like opening for the 2000 world junior volleyball championship at SaskPlace. Moving on she became the bassist for Bridge city blues band another very young blues rock original band, ( later known as T Vaughan ). That gave her the chance to travel all over Saskatchewan and Alberta opening for such acts as the Mockin' Shadows ( the Shadows, now on tour with BB king ) . She sites her influences as Stevie Wonder, Parliament, Marvin Gaye, Wide mouth mason, Lisa Lobe.
Dave Berry, ( 20) drums, and vocals. Long time friend of the family. He's one great multi instrumentalist, playing drums and bass just as well. Add guitarist and budding songwriter to that list, the man has talent running through his veins. He 'cut his chops' playing drums and bass for bands out of Calgary like the famed Jimmy Pain and the House of Pain. And in 2001 became the new bassist for the Jordan Cook Band. He's one amazing musician.
Over the past year Palmer, has been extremely busy. Playing McNally Robinson, Buds on Broadway, Lydia's as the Feature act for the Ness Creek open stage and the Centenial Auditorium as the Opening act for the Cameco 2001 Dare to Dance, the Saskatchewan jazz festival, the Fringe festival and playing Saskatchewan Place, finishing First in the 2002 Saskatchewan Star Search showcase. They've just finished recording their first full length CD entitled "Fall In June" scheduled to be in released late Febuary 2003. The bands new direction is a new sound all their own, with deeply talented roots. Full of musicality and a powerful force to heard, felt and experienced, live and on CD.
