Palmyre’s Music History
Featured Spotlight Artist Palmyre has a passion for gospel, soul and R&B, and her music is the culmination of a lot of passion, love and talent. Ever since she was a child, Palmyre had a true penchant for heartfelt melodies and gripping hooks, inspired by some of her favorite singers and musical ads. As a devoted Christian, Palmyre is dedicated to using her musical gift as a way to genuinely reach out to the audience and make a positive difference in the world with her singing skills.
While playing the violin she also took her first piano lessons with professor Fritz Hunter at Bird College, and professor Richardson Leopold at L’Ecole De Musique de Monette Leopold. As a kid, she started showing off her vocals by interpreting the songs of Withney Houston, one of her favorite singers.
In 1999, she moved to New York permanently and began to play the clarinet, joining the band of her new church, Gethsemane. After majoring in Legal Studies and receiving a Masters of Sciences in Education, she started teaching literature to high school students in New York City, and eventually met Haitian Gospel artist Wilkinson Theodore, who discovered her singing gift and invited her to attend a studio session. The two became friends and collaborators on many projects. Palmyre joined Wilkinson to perform at his church, the Brooklyn Tabernacle. This is when Palmyre says she begun to truly understand God, mature in her own faith, and believe in the power of prayer. In 2009 Palmyre recorded “Ou se Jehovah”, her first solo project. The album was inspired by the rich color of sacred harmonies, which once again, affirmed her God-given gift.
In 2014, she returned to Haiti for the first to perform a highly anticipated live concert. The same year, Radio Alleluia nominated her for the award Revelation of the year, which she went on to win. In 2015, she returned to the recording booth for another highly anticipated Gospel project in her native tongue. Her second solo album titled “2eme Chance” was released on March 25th, 2017. In November of that same year, the release was nominated under three categories: Best album, Best song (For single “Li Ka Fel”), Best Duo collaboration (For “Kotew Ye” with Haitian Christian rapper Fre Gabe).
“Despite all the adversities a female may encounter when ministering” Featured Spotlight Artist Palmyre says, she is determined to continue spreading the gospel through songs and hymns.
