Noe Palma

It sure doesn’t hurt having a name like Noe Palma. That’s why his debut single was titled “Get My Name Right.” It is very
different, unique, and memorable. That’s exactly what fans have been saying about Noe’s music for the past 15 years!

Growing up the Kansas City Metro Area, Noe started singing when he first heard Elvis Presley sing “All Shook Up.” Raised
in a very musically passionate family, he was engulfed by different rhythms and sounds. Both his parents were talented
singers and his father played guitar. Like many of his friends he was a member of his high school choir, but quickly
realized that type of music didn’t fit into his country soul.

Working with song writers such as Patrick Jason Matthews, Dallas Davidson, Ashley Gorley, and Bobby Pinson. Noe has
created a great mix of Country and Southern Rock. Palma released “I’ll Be Your Whiskey” and has continued to tour the
mid-west extensively, and has teamed up with hit songwriters including Bobby Pinson, Ashley Gorley and Dallas
Davidson, to craft his songwriting ability. He has opened for a host of today’s hot artists such as Eric Church, Justin
Moore, Lee Brice, Randy Houser, Travis Tritt, Old Dominion, etc.

Palma, who is a current CMA (Country Music Association) member, wrapped up a successful trip in Nashville this past
summer by participating in the CMA Music Festival. During this week, he was meeting fans and signing autographs and
also had the opportunity to perform at a few venues downtown including a full band set at the world famous Wildhorse
Saloon. For the remainder of the summer, Palma can be found on the road playing shows and visiting stations in support
of the brand new single hitting radio July 2017 “Swerve.”
