Penny & Sparrow
Penny & Sparrow
Let A Lover Drown You, the stunning new album from Penny & Sparrow is set for a March 11 release on Single Lock Records/Thirty Tigers. Let A Lover Drown You features 11 beautifully crafted songs overflowing with gorgeous melodies, soaring harmonies and thought provoking lyrics that cut right to the core.
With influences that range from The Swell Season to Iron & Wine to Stephen Sondheim, Penny & Sparrow create music that is equally as intimate and poignant as it is powerful and earnest. The songs on Let A Lover Drown You touch on the idea that living, loving and even dying are all part of the journey we experience and how they connect us. Our choices, sacrifices and pain are vital elements of this experience and help define our character. While this all may seem quite heavy, Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke (aka Penny & Sparrow) masterfully articulate these notions by humanizing them, making everything easily relatable.
Baxter and Jahnke began making music together in 2010 while roommates at the University of Texas in Austin. The duo built a reputation for creating strikingly honest, bare boned acoustic music that resonated deeply with those who heard their songs and saw their captivating performances, which rendered audiences silent. True to their DIY ethos, Penny & Sparrow independently released two celebrated albums, one EP and toured the country extensively building a loyal and fervent following.
Produced by John Paul White (Civil Wars) and Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes), Let A Lover Drown You find Penny & Sparrow pushing forward while maintaining a firm footing in their signature sound, one that boasts affecting vocals and contemplative lyrics. The album introduces a denser sound than their previous work, infusing lush arrangements on tracks such as the aching opener “Finery” or the sweeping “Catalogue”. Their songs feel up close and personal and induce chills as they exude haunting beauty (“Gold”) and uplifting melodies with acoustic flourishes (“Makeshift”). The depth, dynamics and soul bearing on Let A Lover Drown You make it easy to understand why fans have such a strong connection to their music and why so many more are beginning to.
Lowland Hum
Lowland Hum
Lowland Hum is an art-folk band based in Charlottesville, Virginia, made up of husband/wife team Daniel and Lauren Goans. In a particularly cacophonous cultural moment, Lowland Hum is a breath of fresh air. The band’s songs have been described as poetic and evocative, and their arrangements minimal, hushed and dynamic. Lowland Hum’s performances are characterized by the vulnerable, intimate space the duo creates and welcomes the audience into. With a loyal fanbase that is steadily growing, Lowland Hum is a band to take note of, especially as they recently released Thin, their third full-length album and support the release with a nationwide headlining US tour in the spring (additional dates supporting Josh Ritter, Jesca Hoop and Penny and Sparrow) and a European tour in the fall. They have toured extensively since the band’s inception in 2012 to support their two full-length albums and one EP. Both their live show and studio releases have garnered critical acclaim from the likes of NPR, the Washington Post, American Songwriter and others.
