“Palmer’s songwriting and guitar playing
are tasteful and bittersweet, his music
is crafted with feeling and poetic flair.
I’m reminded of another acoustic icon,
Gordon Lightfoot.”

Stephen Hardy Palmer - "road-survivor" 

 

Raised on gospel, country and the blues, the old time influences on a young prairie picker with a love of Doc Watson made him a good fit for psychedelic folk-rock bands touring and playing support for most of the big name suspects during the ‘60s UK invasion. And then more steady dues paid as guitarist-for-hire in country bands working the rural Alberta bar scene. He started using his voice only in the ‘80s, when he’d picked some west-coast time to study music a bit more formally. But it wasn’t ‘til he returned home to care for his mother that he found personal respite and freedom in becoming a solo performer, and now he travels a troubadour circuit around BC, Alberta, and the East.

 

Fifty years as a travelling musician is a lot of road, and Steve Palmer is still playing and still touring. Grown enough to sing about life and simple pleasures with all the unhurried authority of a quiet and simple folk-singing road-survivor.
