Meet the Palomas

Palomas is an American indie/alternative rock band from Phoenix Arizona, who have been creating music together since primary school. Their music is known for its high-energy, high tempo grooves and their live performances are a favorite at ASU sorority and fraternity parties. 


The group won recording time as a finalist prize in the 2019 Alice Coopers Proof’s competition. Their EP was forwarded to Glen Crimson (director of AZ Music Hall of Fame) who flipped over one of their singles and started forwarding it to local and national DJ’s.  Glen also sent it to Grammy winning, multi-platinum producer Mikal Blue (producer of One Republic, the 1975, Colbie Caillat, Toad the wet Sprocket, etc.,) who had the band travel to Los Angeles 10 days later where her recorded and produced the single!


Palomas will be slowly releasing each of the 5 EP songs through singles over the course of 2021. A preview of a single to be released later in the year can be seen on “” which is an Amazon Prime show hosted by Grammy winning producer Otto D’Angelo and is scheduled to air in March of 2021 on episode #5. Otto has several recognized audio projects including: 2 Super Bowl half-time shows (Diana Ross and the Beach Boys), Randy Jackson, Lou Rawls,  DMX, Billy Preston, Kenny Rogers and other widely recognized names in the music industry.
