Hailing from the Swedish countryside, Elin Palmer began playing the violin and nyckelharpa when she was barely six.
After emigrating to America and becoming an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist – having performed and/or recorded with The Fray, DeVotchKa,
16 Horsepower, Munly and the Lee Lewis Harlots, Wovenhand, the Czars, M. Ward, and Crooked Fingers – long-time hipster crush, Elin Palmer is moving out from the shadows with her own first-rate fresh.
Her debut solo release ‘Postcard’ heralds her heavenly sound with ethereal pop vocals,
Swedish-inspired compositions and showcases her dexterous skills on the nyckelharpa, violin, guitar, cello and accordion, which come together to create a divine mix that melts hearts, hearing, and the whole music scene.
“She is one of the most accomplished, storied accompanists in Colorado rock history.”
—Ricardo Baca, the Denver Post
“Elin Palmer is finally taking her place at center stage”
– The Voice of Energy
“Wherever the unique instrumentation dominates, sheer brilliance ensues.” —Fensepost.com
“The complete package is alive and original...Every track is golden.”
“Something akin to an out-of-body experience.”
– Josh Ruffin, Metro Spirit
