"powerful debut track" bbc introducing
Boy/Girl songwriting duo from the north of England, Penny Whispers pair powerful and catchy hooks with emotive and striking harmonies. Blending styles from Pop, Rock & Folk, their music and lyrics hit hard with strong musical progressions and deep lyrical meaning.
They cut their teeth on the northern pub circuit and now endeavour to bring their songs to the rest of the world.
They used to live on a ship, sailing around the world, performing for thousands of people every night. After 4 years of touring, cabin fever cooked up a spicy punch of creative flair, that this harmonic partnership have doused over their original songs.
In the years running up to recording their latest single, the two have shared the stage with some big names, supporting Jessie J, Toploader, E17 & playing festivals alongside Ella Henderson & The Kaiser Chiefs.
Penny Whispers capture the essence of the complex and critical feelings felt in 2020’s life with melodic definition and powerful hooks. Applying the unusual choice of a male voice taking higher harmony lines and intertwining harmony & melody so the ear thinks they’re one & the same, each listen offers a different path to whomever stumbles across Penny Whispers.
The music is first and foremost “Pop Fusion” Traditional writing styles (& a strong beat) pair with contemporary sounds & unique voices to create a new sound very much needed in these dark times.
Joining together in 2015 for the sole purpose (like most musicians) of earning a living performing in a function band, an unlikely friendship blossomed from two very different songwriters, into a wonderfully colourful dynamic fusion of intense harmonic collaboration- now known as Penny Whispers.
Creativity sprung from traveling the world and spread. Before they knew it they had written over 50 new songs, inspired by the sights and lives they were experiencing.
They made the decision to give up touring on ships, performing other peoples songs and poured hours in to mining their creative souls, introducing new instruments and technology to beef up their sound
Their debut single ‘Stay a While’ is out everywhere now.
