The Cymbal Podcast, Episode 4 - Daisy Palmer
During a 3 year BA hons degree at Bristol University, Daisy started playing with well-known artists on the Bristol and U.K. music scene including Pee Wee Ellis, Andy Sheppard, Get The Blessing, Adrian Utley and Lillian Boutte. She also formed her own band Chairfight which led to the foundations of her project Mesadorm. In 2010, she joined Goldfrapp for the ‘Head First’ World Tour and moved back to London during 2012. There she was a founder member of the band Feverist which led to a collaboration with composer Martin Phipps writing the soundtrack to Series 1 of Peaky Blinders. Since then she has toured and/or recorded with Paloma Faith, Rae Morris, MIKA, Barry Adamson, Hannah Peel, Beth Gibbons, John Metcalfe, Beth Orton, Pepe Belmonte and Bellatrix.
As well as continuing to work with Paloma Faith in 2019, Daisy is also running a label ‘Babylegs Records’, a collective imprint founded by Mesadorm working with promising left-field artists within the industry. Daisy’s other focus for this year will be with Feverist, working on new music for the Peaky Blinders Video Game, and also with Mesadorm who are releasing an acoustic album via Babylegs Records on 19th April 2019 which they will be touring in the U.K. 24th April - 26th May.
Daisy’s drum clinics run from 15th - 19th April 2019.
Daisy used exclusively Gretsch drums on ‘The Architect’ tour with Paloma Faith 2017/2018. ‘The Architect’ charted at number 1 on release in November 2017 and has since gone platinum. Daisy particularly favours the BroadKaster as it offers enough vintage sensibilities and versatility for playing a wide range of musical styles within the Paloma Faith show.
