SHANA PALMER (CHILDE BRIDE) (BALTIMORE) Shana Palmer arrived in Baltimore, MD last May from Boston, MA where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Painting at the Massachusetts College of Art. She is a multidisciplinary artist and self-taught musician. Her solo music project Childe Bride is going on its third year with releases in the US and UK. Her improvised music is described as mysterious tribal drone and sometimes noise folk. The consistency that exists is that the music is always narrative, taking the audience on a walk often through the world of shadows and forest at twilight. Since moving to Baltimore she has been involved in Baltimore’s High Zero Festival doing collaborations with Jenny Graf and film installation work in the 2010 Transmodern Festival. She is currently the other half of the debut band Secret Secrets where she juxtaposes her electronic music with Melissa Moore’s (a previous Los Solos performer) drumming styles. Secret Secrets is looking forward to an Ehse Records release in the future. http://www.myspace.com/thechildebride
