Once upon a time when Norman Palm was finishing his artschool degree in Paris he had the idea to produce his first album Songs along with 200 printed pages of his own art. Back in Berlin and with the tailwind of a hyped single featuring ironic slowed-down versions of Boys Don’t Cry and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (nearly 300.000 views on YouTube) Norman founded his own label, sold out the book and started to play audiovisual shows all over Europe. Making the jump from DIY to the real world Norman recently signed a deal with City Slang. He is now back with his second album Shore to Shore written around his cosmopolitain love-life between Berlin and Mexico City. Featuring members of the Whitest Boy Alive and LCMDF Norman crosses genres as easily as oceans. His quirky voice tops layers of choirs, ukuleles, minimal beats and acoustic guitars presenting a hip yet touching apporach to singer-songwriterism. It’s like listening to a great indie-pop radio station! For his live shows Norman teams up with a new band. Together with his producer and muli-instrumentalist Janne Lounatvouri from Helsinki and more recently also hobo-tech guru Obi Blanche they create something most likely to be called singer-songwriter-rave-pop.
