Palter Ego is the brain child of vocalist Jesse Palter and keyboardist Sam Barsh, who combine forces to create their own blend of upbeat pop, jazz and soul.
Both established musicians, producers and dynamic performers in their own right, (Palter is a 5x Detroit Music Award Winner for her jazz work; Barsh has toured and written with the likes of Norah Jones, Cassandra Wilson, Avishai Cohen and The Brand New Heavies), Palter Ego has created a niche for themselves by combining catchy hooks, dynamic beats, and captivating lyrics.
They have released 3 albums to date: Above the Covers (2012), We Write Songs! (2011), and Limited Edition EP (2009); the latter two under their former name, Jesse Palter and the Alter Ego.
In addition to their recordings, Palter Ego's popular youtube channel has garnered attention from blogs including Perez Hilton, the Daily What, and Pollstar. ( see it here at http://www.youtube.com/thepalterego )
They have performed throughout the US both with a full band and as a duo, done a month-long stint in Macau, China, and headlined the 2011 Red Sea Jazz Festival in Israel.
Their music has been featured on a variety of television shows, including Keeping Up with The Kardashians, Around the World for Free, and The Real World, and commercials for Com Edison, Coca Cola, Allstate Insurance and the Webby Awards.
