Music Series: Rissi Palmer

Attend a special performance by Saint Louis native, Performer, and Songwriter Rissi Palmer. Rissi's influences—including Patsy Cline, Chaka Khan, Phoebe Snow, and James Taylor—have inspired her to create her own sound called "Southern Soul," which is a blend of country, soul, and blues. Enjoy a high-energy, interactive performance that will shake and stir all of the emotions!

Rissi Palmer has received widespread media attention in national publications including Ebony, Billboard, People, Newsweek, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, and more. She has performed on the CBS Morning Show, CNN, Oprah & Friends, at the White House, Lincoln Center, and the Grand Ole Opry. Rissi made music history in 2007 with the release of her Top 40 debut single, "Country Girl," becoming the first African-American female to chart a country song since 1987. She is now the host of the Apple Music country show, Color Me Country Radio with Rissi Palmer and administers the Color Me Country Artist Grant Fund to provide grants for artists of color pursuing careers in Country and Americana Music.
