PALMR  Writer/Producer/Programmer/MD

Studio Acton, West London

PALMR (aka Robin Pearkes) is a fresh talent and a new addition to the Z Management roster. PALMR is a writer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and programmer. He also has experience in the live side of the industry as a musical director. Robin first got into writing and production through performing extensively on bass guitar, keys and upright bass. Robin has also gigged extensively, both on tours and at festivals as a musical director. Sonically, Robin enjoys working across pop, alternative pop, alternative R&B, electronica, drum and bass and EDM.

Robin starts a session getting to know the person, finding out what drives them and who they're inspired by. He then reflects this back to them starting with keys, guitar or samples and distilling this into their original sound, making space for them to craft their story. His breadth of experience allows him to craft a sound that sits with in a specific genre or fuse and play with different genres to create a new sound.

Robin's most fruitful collaboration so far has been with the artist Sonia Stein, signed to Marathon Artists. He has worked extensively on her catalogue (both co-writing and production), from her biggest track so far, "Philosophical" to her latest track "Sweet Spot". Robin has also had cuts with the artists Nathan Hartono and EDIS (Warner), SHELLS (BMG, including producing her stunning version "What A Difference A Day Makes", which featured in the NHS vaccine advert), PLANT (Sound Collective), LUME (Hand 5), Ben Kidson (Wolves Records/Warner), Tiggi Hawke & Joel Adams (Tileyard/Ultra) and Sevdaliza. Robin has also been in the studio with the likes of HEIDI (3Beat/Universal), Louis III (Sound Collective), Jack Hawitt, Lily Denning, Flintz & Taylor and more.

In terms of live work, Robin became the musical director for Island Records/Universal Music artist Kid Brunswick. He has subsequently worked with the artists RED, SHELLS, VÖS, Sophie Amato, Jax0n (Jackson Mathod) and Sonia Stein on the live side.

As a new Z client, Robin is now looking to expand his horizons and is open to new creative opportunities that come his way.

Robin is based out of his studio in Acton, West London.
