Steve Palmer Band Raises Money for Charities and Brings a 'Timeless and Transcendent' Soulful Rock to Their Debut CD 'Apparition'

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) - STEVE PALMER BAND (SPB) gears up to release their knockout debut rock CD Apparition March 1, 2011. Simultaneously, Steve Palmer is raising money for children's charities, giving interviews and performing on tours with Blues Traveler, Sister Hazel and Bob Schneider.

SPB's label, Arythmia Records (AR), will raise and donate $0.05 to Save The Children and St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital for each of the first 200,000 fans who download the single "In Love." The promotion can be accessed by clicking "ShareThis" at and runs through January 31.

Steve Palmer describes the title track "Apparition" as "An edgy rock song about a woman who breaks away from a dark force that wants to control and destroy her." This storyline applies to obstacles Palmer has confronted in bringing his songs public -- songs that are "timeless and transcend genre" (Celebrity Café 2010). One break occurred at the Hollywood Music in Media Award (HMMA) performance and nomination for "Apparition" (Best AC/AAA Song).

Palmer recently interviewed with In The Now Magazine, Maximum Ink, Power Play and KJAG-FM DJ James Lowe who is a "big fan." This follows 2010 taped concerts in Nashville at Mercy Lounge, Sound Check and 3rd Avenue South. SPB recently recorded two records in Nashville... one two times and the other three times. "Well by our fifth effort, I hope we will get the thing tamper proof. After a lot of hocus pocus in studios throughout my career, we ended up at a basement studio called Downtown Battery Studios, which is my favorite room."

In running AR, Palmer applies business sense he learned working as a kid in restaurants and supermarkets, starting a student paper in England, bringing black and white student groups together to promote appearances by Dick Gregory, Chick Corea and Gil Scott Heron, interning with an Ald. Danny Davis on the West Side of Chicago, and working as a professional in New York, Philly and Washington D.C.

Palmer adds, "I will not be satisfied until my music gets out to the people and all the rough roads for artists are gone. People need great music to feel good and be inspired to hope and dream. And that's one thing I think I can give to everyone."
