Palominos, a five piece band hailing from Richmond, Virginia, follows the lead of artists like The Kings of Leon, My Morning Jacket, and Ryan Adams. Their music could be described as a comfortable blend of vintage tube driven tones with a flair for modern influence.

A strong emphasis is placed on songwriting, which is then escalated into a barrage of energy on the live stage!

Recent accolades include selection to perform at the 6th Annual Langerado Music Festival at Big Cypress, a performance on the Emmy nominated PBS program THE MUSIC SEEN, a nomination to perform at the 2006 Atlantis Music Conference in Atlanta, GA, and reaching #9 on CMJ top 20 Adds Chart for issue #990.
