Jeremiah “Miah” Palmer is a professional drummer originally from the San Francisco East Bay area. Having started his percussion instruction in elementary school at age 9, he proceeded through junior and high schools playing in the concert, symphonic, jazz, and marching bands.
At age 15 he joined his first rock band, which he played with through the rest of high school. At 19 he joined the US Army, and throughout his service, he continued to play professional gigs and record around central Texas while not deployed. After the Army he moved to Michigan to pursue music playing live gigs and recording drums for jingles for radio commercials.
He decided to move to Los Angeles in 2003 to study at the M.I. (Musicians Institute). Shortly after, he cofounded the metal band P.D.P. with Greg Harrison. In 2006, he accepted a position with The Van-Dells and had to move to Nashville, Tennessee. After returning in 2007, having received his Journeyman and Professional certificates in percussion from M.I. he was hired on in 2007 as a classroom drummer and later an LPW (Live Playing Workshop) instructor, all the while playing gigs with local bands and working doing recording sessions. Since then, he has played with many local LA bands.
Currently he is gigging, teaching, and recording in the LA area.
