Roger Palmer is the composer of all of the music on Lifetimes. His
compositions have been influenced by new age artists past and present
and by the wonderful sounds of Eastern music. However, he wanted to
take the music to a larger audience. He has done that by producing
driving emotive themes throughout the CD which move the music beyond
mere relaxation and contemplation allowing the listener to see and feel
as well as hear what is transpiring in a given piece.
Palmer has been influenced by spiritual teachers.
He owes a great deal
for his growth in spiritual understanding to Depak Chopra, Stuart
Wilde, Robert Bly, John Bradshaw, George Parks and David Driver.
Lifetimes is a result of a spiritual journey for which music was the
only expression. The CD represents the struggle of the human spirit to
find its place in this lifetime. The melodies and moods of this music
are Palmer's vehicles to express life's changes and experiences, and
help him move through the experiences with healing and joy.
Roger is a native of the Pacific Northwest. He won two scholarships in
Performance to the University of Puget Sound and went on to graduate
school in Music Education at Pacific Lutheran University. He has a
musically diverse performance background and is comfortable playing in
