About Jorge Palma

Portuguese singer/songwriter Jorge Palma's career has taken him from child prodigy, to youthful folk-rock icon, to iconic musical pillar. Born in Lisbon, Palma spent his early years studying piano, but by 15 his interests changed significantly, and he began embracing the rock music of the day. He performed with the rock band Sindikato for some years before electing to go solo. By the time his third record was released, he was sharing stages with fellow singer/songwriters Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Leonard Cohen, among others. Palma's recording career flourished during the '70s and '80s, but he remained active throughout the '90s and into the 2000s. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez
