Folk Bands and Artists
Elaine Palmer hails from a sleepy village up on the North Yorkshire Moors, close to Whitby. Elaine surrounded herself by music growing up, singing and playing both the piano and guitar. Inspiral Carpets’ Clint Boon invited Elaine to record at his home studio after seeing her play live, resulting in her debut album, 2003’s “Into The Spotlight”. She continued to tour extensively, performing with a host of successful artists including Paolo Nutini, KT Tunstall, Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, David Gray and Ryan Adams. Elaine’s music has been played on BBC Radio 2 by the legendary DJ and presenter Bob Harris and received fantastic reviews from MOJO, Uncut Magazine, Maverick Magazine and R2 (Rock’n’Reel) Magazine for her second album, “Waves” (2006). Elaine released a live studio album in 2014, “Fire and Flames”, followed by 2016’s “Show Me The Way” (featuring Tom Fletcher from Hyde & Beast and Luke Evans from Young Rebel Set). “Still Life” is the latest of Elaine’s albums, released in 2017 on Mill House Records and seeing her playing electric guitar with a full band as well as featuring intimate solo pieces on piano and nylon guitar.
