Stephen Hardy Palmer - singing guitarist, touring performer.
Based in Gatineau Quebec, Steve began his career in Edmonton, Alberta, during the 1960's Folk and Psychedelic Rock era.
His local bands routinely opened for many of the touring greats- Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Who etc and were local Light Show favourites.
These days his solo acoustic shows are inspired by the great songwriter's and performers of that era - Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen... 
In the new millenium he has released five albums and, recently, a new EP.

Raised on gospel, country and the blues, Stephen Hardy Palmer travels the  troubadour circuit from BC to the Maritimes.

In the 60’s his psychedelic folk-rock bands toured with and supported most of the big name suspects during the UK invasion. And then more steady dues paid as guitarist-for-hire in country bands working the western Canadian bar scene. He started using his voice in the ‘80s, when he studied music a bit more formally.

In the new millenium, Stephen Hardy Palmer has self-released 5 albums of ‘Original & Traditional’ music. 

Still playing and still touring, Stephen Palmer is “grown enough to sing about life and simple pleasures with all the unhurried authority of a quiet and simple folk-singing road-survivor.” (Root Cellar Records)
