With hints of West Coast psychedelia, hip-hop, folk, and more, the Palms have effortlessly combined their love of popular music to create a fresh, uplifting sound, resulting in the perfect soundtrack for Los Angeles summer nights. Inspired to make music without barriers or inhibitions, Johnny Zambetti and Ben Rothbard explored artistic ideas outside their band Terraplane Sun. Before they knew it, the Palms were born.

From there, the band started to make its presence known. After reaching no. 1 on Hype Machine’s most popular tracks list, being featured in publications such as Interview, and charting on Spotify’s Viral UK chart, the band knew its music was connecting with listeners. With an unmistakable sound, style, and songwriting, the Palms has created a distinct place in the musical landscape. More than 50 million streams and YouTube views later, the band has made it clear it’s here to stay.

After spending the second half of 2018 in the studio with Rob Schnapf (Beck, Kurt Vile, Elliott Smith), the Palms are poised to make 2019 their biggest year yet with the release of their upcoming EP, Televised Daydream, and a national headlining tour to follow.

Salem is an alt-pop artist from San Francisco, California, who pulls inspiration from artists such as Billie Eilish and Lorde. Since her start at Berklee College of Music, Salem won Berklee’s “Songs for Social Change” songwriting competition with her single “Awake” and has been featured on WBUR and KCRW radio. She has traveled to China’s Sony ATV Publishing for her songwriting and has partnered with companies such as AwesomenessTV and Hollister. In March, she released her latest single, “Impatient,” and is set to release her EP this summer.
