Music for A New World Age: My music is dedicated to healing of the heart through the discovery of music...in an evolving world seeking Peace and Joy!
Palmer's Music For A New World Age (Changing Our World One Song At A Time) is an evolution of work that is categorically New Age music, but it is fresh and new, beautifully written and beautifully produced. The melodies and moods fairly glisten from beginning to end. Phrase by phrase, not be note, Palmer's Music is a spherical reflection illuminating conflict within the human psyche which struggles to find a state of peace. As a whole, His CD's are a poignant reminder each lifetime is a miracle and a diving journey.
