Steve Palmer's 3rd and most recent CD Morning Road
“A gently timbered voice with heartfelt lyrics backed by some very stellar acoustic players. I detect a bit of Merle Travis in Steve's guitar playing.”
- Gary Fjellgaard
“Nice Playin'.”- Valdy
"Always a treat to hear Steve play. Our audience was surprised and delighted."-Peter Picquet, Full Moon Folk Club
"The Islands Folk Festival was the perfect venue to showcase the music of this dedicated Vancouver Island singer/songwriter/guitarist. Honest, unvarnished and inspiring, served up in a wood smoked tenor accompanied by deft emotive picking, this is classic coffeehouse folk which takes us back to an earlier era when singers didn't need to plug into an amp to make their point, artists like Tom Paxton, Eric Anderson and Ian and Sylvia regularly made the charts and music was less about image and all about integrity. Let it shine, Steve!"
- Brent Hutchinson, Music Director, Islands Folk Festival
"Refreshing, relaxed, Steve's performance brought back so many great memories. I heard someone in the audience say-'Boy can this guy pick!' Amen to that." -Larry Sandberg, South Country Fair
“Steve is true to the roots of music nurtured by and bathed in blues, folk, and gospel. He engages the audience easily and takes them with him on his musical journey. An inspiring talent and a terrific picker too, Steve mines the musical veins that are the principal of roots music and reinvests his own heart and soul. The results are beautiful.”- L.W.Kossey, The Dancing Bean
“Steve Palmer is an amazing performer. His lyrics and at times his vocals conjure up Hoyt Axton, Jim Croce, or Leon Redbone. Steve is also a superb guitar player - the cut "The Water is Wide" is one of the most beautiful instrumental arrangements I have ever heard - and has me in tears each time I listen to it."
