Holly Palmer "Holly Palmer" 1996

If there ever was a singer that you've heard everywhere, but most likely never heard of, it would  be Holly Palmer. You've heard her singing backup for everyone...David Bowie, Gnarls Barkley, Idina Menzel....many movies you've seen have had her songs in the soundtrack...Down With love, Party of Five, Into the Blue....I could keep running a list here for quite awhile...really. An amazing singer....she is instantly recognizable, and sings comfortably in almost any genre. Four albums released, dating back to 1996...none really ever had the airplay they should've received.....truly criminal, IMHO. Today, I'm posting Palmer's debut release from 1996. I think it's out-of-print, although it may be available through her website, or for download from Amazon. This is an album that is truly worth a listen...very original, different. Palmer's songwriting is nearly as impressive as her voice. At the time of it's release, I remember thinking how much it stood out from anything that was released that year. I still love it.
