With hints of West Coast Psychedelia, Hip Hop, Folk and more, The Palms have effortlessly combined their love of ALL popular music to create a fresh, uplifting sound, resulting in the perfect soundtrack to a summer night in Los Angeles. The need to make music without barriers or inhibitions is what initially inspired Johnny Zambetti and Ben Rothbard to explore artistic ideas outside of their band Terraplane Sun. Before they knew it, The Palms were born.
From there, the band started to make their presence known. After reaching #1 on the HypeMachine Most Popular Track's list, being featured in publications such as Interview Mag, and charting on KCRW’s MBE and Spotify's Viral UK charts, the band knew that their music was connecting with listeners in a positive way. Millions of streams and Youtube views later, The Palms have made it clear that they're here to stay and the momentum is only intensifying.
The quick and Independent rise of The Palms is no fluke. Their unmistakeable sound, style, songwriting and DIY approach has helped create their distinct place in today's musical landscape. It is the message behind their songs however, that The Palms hope will make the greatest impact. Nina Simone said it best.."How can you be an artist and not reflect the times."
All songs written, performed, and produced by The Palms.
