Millie Palmer was born and raised in Asheville, NC. Growing up in a musical household, she began singing and playing piano and guitar at a young age, and began playing professionally in her early teenage years. Since then, she has made a name for herself in Asheville and the surrounding areas as an expressive and distinctive vocalist, and an accomplished songwriter. In addition to obtaining a music degree in jazz studies from UNC-Asheville, Millie has studied songwriting with Darrell Scott, Mary Gautier, and the late Guy Clark. Palmer’s treatment of her music, as well as the music that she chooses to cover, is that of a sensitive and intuitive artist. There is a level of telepathy within her group that is indicative of seasoned jazz musicians who are willing to take risks, and share a deep trust musically and personally that makes the risks pay off many times over.
