Penny is a UK Singer/Songwriter originally from West Sussex, but now living in Reading near London. Her love of music came from her dad who was in the Navy, instead of reading her children stories at night, he would sing and play her country songs on his guitar. As a result she would lay awake at night making up her own songs and dreaming of a future as a singer.

 

As she grew up, she continued to write songs whilst living in London. 

 

Her biggest influence came from a six-week adventure to California, where she immersed herself in Country Music whilst travelling from L.A to San Francisco and further up the Northern Coastline.

With this experience and her love of leading female singers ranging from the 80s & 90s era to the present day, she has gone on to develop her own unique style.

 

She started performing around the South of England, building up a following, then in 2015 went to Nashville to record six of her songs, returning in April 2016 to complete her 11 Track self-titled album.
