Here is the video premiere of ‘Just One’, featuring the infectious sound of Elaine Palmer, who delivers a fabulous vocal performance, once again. During the song’s gentle beginning and verses, Palmer’s voice is delicate and smooth. However, when she hits the choruses and, later, as the song builds, she delivers an evocative vocal full of bluesy character and the contrast is truly effective. Palmer’s sense of melody is impeccable and she is capable of crafting songs that swell, rise up and take you by surprise. Rob Irish’s video takes full advantage of the dramatic, sweeping scenery to enhance the song.
This powerful single is taken from the Yorkshire singer’s forthcoming album ‘The Land In Between’, which is due for release on 3rd September. The nine songs explore themes of freedom and our connection with the land on which we live. Palmer has delivered a string of acclaimed albums during her career though this is the first full-length album since the 2019 EP ‘Desert Songs’, which received plenty of airplay in the USA, reaching the top ten in the Indie Charts over there as well as being playlisted by British Airways on all their flights worldwide.
On extensive tours of the UK and USA, Palmer has shared stages with the likes of Patty Griffin and
Paolo Nutini and she has been championed by Bob Harris, Mojo and Uncut. Her songs evoke a real sense of place, reflecting the wild Yorkshire Moors where she grew up and the Arizona desert where she spends much of her time with family. This is powerful stuff. Enjoy.
