Some great audio goodness for you #Growns to get your weekend started right. This song is perfect for the ride to anywhere and we’re glad that someone was cool enough to put us on to the music of Rissi Palmer. Rissi is getting ready to drop a 5-song EP, The Back Porch Sessions on Tuesday, May 26, 2015, with pre-sales available now on iTunes here. We’re looking forward to hearing more from this artist who is blending all her musical influences — from country to soul and R&B in a very real and musically exciting way.
