Lillian Palmer is a seasoned entertainer with years of experience performing both as a singer and actress. She is best known for her powerful and classically-trained voice, which has graced audiences around the world and throughout San Diego and California

Lillian’s study of classical music began at the age of fifteen and inspired her to become involved in musical theater. From there she became fascinated and inspired by classic pieces. As a young adult, she honed her vocal talent while living in Italy and performing in nightclubs and cabaret venues. After four years living abroad, Lillian returned to the United States but continued to perform.

After returning to California, Lillian formed a vocal group, Party of 4, which is one of San Diego’s premier vocal performance quartets, specializing big band swing, 50’s, 60’s and contemporary jazz.

In 2008, Palmer released her debut CD, Like a Lover. The album was produced by Grammy winner Bill Cunliffe and features ten different pieces that showcase Lillian’s unique vocal talent. The album has garnered praise from critics, including Paul Hormick of the San Diego Troubadour, Kevin Taylor of KPOP Music, Marvin Dickie of The Urban Music Scene and many others.
