This Sunday, 9 January, Ciaran’s guest ‘castaway’ is Stevie Palmer who is an award-winning singer songwriter based in Edinburgh. His debut album ‘Heartprint Shadow’ was released by the Greentrax Recordings label in December 2010.
Following an initial musical career as a drummer Stevie Palmer decided to turn his full attention to the art and craft of songwriting. This progression was always more than likely as Stevie grew up surrounded by his mother, folk singer/songwriter Eileen Penman’s music and musical loves as well as those of her partner and avid music collector Dougal Carnegie. These influences covered a wide and varied terrain from John Coltrane and Abdullah Ibrahim to Dick Gaughan, Michael Marra, Dougie Maclean,Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark as well as a few hundred others in between.
