Josh Palmer finds his muse in The Sunset Kids |The Star Phoenix

Whether it’s guitar player, music producer, songwriter or even former Canadian Idol contestant, Josh Palmer isn’t worried about how you know him. He just wants you to hear what he’s been up to lately.

“I’m flattered when people come up to me and say they enjoyed any performance of mine,” says Palmer. “I was a kid on Canadian Idol and I’ve grown musically in every way since that show.”

Palmer’s latest project is an electro-folk duo called The Sunset Kids. He met his musical partner Alliya Elena four years ago and it was a musical match from the start.

“From note one, Alliya sat down at the piano in my studio and started ripping a beautiful piece, we discovered a beautiful musical connection.” He jokes, “It was fate that a kid from Saskatoon and a girl from Russia met in the middle of Canada to form a band.”
