Pallmer is a chamber-pop project born from late night improv sessions during a particularly snowy winter in Fredericton, New Brunswick.



Using a cello and viola, the band’s music melds their love of songwriting with their classical training, using loopers and effects to expand the possibilities of their wooden instruments.  Pallmer’s most recent release, “Quiet Clapping” won Recording of the Year at the 2021 Prix MNB Awards.  The collection of five songs were recorded in a large dance studio at the back of a church-converted-to-arts centre, taking advantage of its natural resonance, and embracing the occasional noises from old water heating.  Pallmer released a limited edition, double-header vinyl run of  “Quiet Clapping” & their 2019 release, “Grass Garden” on April 9th, 2022.

The band has taken a slow but steady approach to releasing music, and after two EPs and two years of writing, this past fall Pallmer returned to the studio to record their first LP “Swimming.” They worked with JUNO award-winning producer Joshua van Tassel, squirrelling away for five days at his secluded home studio to record the album.  Their collaboration produced a tender collection of 9 songs that interweaves layers of strings, bass, synthesizers, and marimba-like percussion.  The album is slated to be released January 12, 2024.
