Triston Palmer aka Triston or Tristan Palma (born 1962, Waltham Park, Kingston, Jamaica) is a reggae singer/deejay. He has been active since the mid-1970s.*** Palmer was born in 1962 and grew up in the Waltham Park area of Kingston, and decided from an early age that he wanted to be a singer. He began by singing to the accompaniment of Soul Syndicate guitarist Tony Chin. His first recording was “Love Is A Message” for producer Bunny Lee when he was eight years old, which was followed by “A-Class Girl” for the Black Solidarity label, which was co-run by Palmer and Ossie Thomas. He came to the attention of producer/deejay Jah Thomas, who began a substantial association with Palmer with the track “Entertainment”, when Palmer was aged around 14. He made a major breakthrough with his performance in 1979 at the General Penitentiary Memorial Concert for Claudie Massop, which also featured Bob Marley. Palmer became a popular artist in the “singjay” style in the early 1980s. “Entertainment” was a Jamaican hit and he enjoyed further successes with “Water Bubbling”, “Spliff Tail”, “Raving”, and “Run Around Woman”. Palmer also worked with Linval Thompson, who produced his Joker Lover and Settle Down Girl albums, and later George Phang, Tony Robinson, Sugar Minott, Bunny Gemini, and Castro Brown. At one point in the early 1980s, Palmer had nine songs in Jamaica’s Top 40.
