Steeped in Swedish Folk music since her birth in Värmland, Sweden, Elin Palmer has been incorporating the Scandinavian sounds into her own music, made modern with her ethereal pop vocals and indie rock twists, providing an aural landscape at once lush and mythical as rune stones covered in moss.
Typically hired for her skills and talent on the violin and nyckelharpa, Elin has been oft-described as a multi-instrumentalist–even keen to the recorder, on which she enjoys playing the Jurassic Park theme song.
Once heralded by Denver’s top music critic Ricardo Baco, as “one of the most accomplished, storied accompanists in Colorado rock history,” she has a long list of credits, performing and/or recording with such bands as: 16 Horsepower, Crooked Fingers, The Czars, Wovenhand, The Fray, Munley & the Lee Lewis Harlots, and Jeff Zentner. And that’s just a start. Her first band, a punk rock band started way back in the day (’97-’01) was recorded by Joe Queer, of the The Queers. She has also toured and performed live with Devotchka, including an appearance on Late Night with Conan O’ Brien.
She has released a solo album titled, Postcard, in 2010, and a new release is expected in 2014.
