Bill Palmer's TV Killers / Press

"That boy is the best guitar player I've seen in a long time"

Hubert Sumlin, late guitarist for Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters

“Bill Palmer’s reputation as a music producer and engineer at Frogville Studios in Santa Fe is as solid as his notoriety for telling it like it is. It has already proven to be a great production year for the singer-songwriter/guitarist, who also wields an ax in his wife’s band Stephanie Hatfield and Hot Mess. How Palmer managed to carve out enough free time to lay down some tracks with his own band is a mystery. But rather than waste precious moments trying to solve it, just go pick up this eight-song treasure trove of alt-rock and Americana. It's an absolute pleasure to listen to a collection of carefully crafted songs penned by someone who knows his way around a guitar and a studio and isn't afraid to wear his rage, disappointment, redemption and fear on his sleeve.”

““Bill is to Santa Fe what James McMurtry is to Austin, which is to say that he gets a lot of shit in town, particularly from club and bar owners for speaking his mind. In a way, he is Santa Fe’s music conscious, unafraid of exposing the shortsighted attitudes that undermine local music’s vitality and relevance to Santa Fe culture. The band’s name, TV Killers, stems from an incident at the Cowgirl Hall of Fame where a television, placed above the band area, was kept on during a Stephanie Hatfield and Hot Mess gig. Words ensued. The band was asked to leave mid-set and they haven’t been back since.””

““Bill Palmer’s TV Killers was on stage when I arrived, and I have to admit, it was hard not to have fun. My friend Karla said Bill, with his top hat and white face, looked like a combination of Jack White and Johnny Depp, but he played far better.”
