who we are

In today’s musical world, the words “original,” “indie,” “progressive” and “fusion” are thrown around freely but with Abigail Palmer & Eric Selby, these descriptions are, indeed, fitting. Abigail Palmer (electric harp & vocals), a music conservatory graduate, comes with a background in Celtic and Classical music, while Eric Selby (drums & percussion) has a history deeply rooted in jazz, Americana, blues and rock. Together, their backgrounds provide a multitude of soundscapes and genres that reflects the multi-cultural, ever changing, millennial melting pot we live in today.

"Abigail's approach to playing the harp is sensitive, heartfelt and exciting. Eric paints a snare drum like he was Rembrandt."

​“The drumming has taken me all over the place. I’ve heard a lot of different influences in the drumming and then you add the harp to that with your voice, it creates this tapestry of almost a larger group of being in front of you.”
