Few people have as big of a passion to give back to the world as Dave Palmer does. For most of his life, music has been a driving force pushing him to do more for the people around him. He has been in multiple bands and worked hard to ensure that anyone who wants to play or produce music has the same opportunity. He started what was originally called Spread the Music Foundation, which would eventually morph into what we know today as Walk The Beat.
Although he has since retired from Walk The Beat, Palmer started to think about ways to stay involved in the local music scene with kids. With the inspiration of his grandson Avery, the idea of Five Strand Fusion was born.
