Join us for the much awaited Penniless Cove ‘Onion Peel’ album launch. With special guests and support from Ben Sommers, this night is going to be one to remember.
London-via-Pembrokeshire songwriter Penniless Cove (aka Phoebe) has always taken a left field approach to creating music. Performing a number of different instruments, her tracks lean on a number of various genres, bringing elements of Folk, Blues, Jazz and Pop together in a unique vision of her own work. Her brand of songwriting has led to tours across the UK and Europe in recent years including performances at Latitude Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival and was invited to perform on Radio 4’s influential ‘Loose Ends’ earlier this year.
Her new album “Onion Peel’ ebbs and flows between haunting pieces of dark folk such as “River Lea”, and satirical songwriting gems such as “Time to Get A Cleaner”. There’s a vibrant honesty throughout the record, that feels as raw, awkward and emotive as the stories she tells.
‘Her mischievous lyrics and raw, powerful voice draw you in’ – Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6 Music
‘Phoebe’s words are articulated so delicately by her husky, sophisticated voice that if taken out of the song would read more like a beautiful poem’ – Folk and Honey, 2016
‘A unique sound’ – Clive Anderson, BBC Radio 4 Music
‘Deliberately perplexing and rich with metaphor’ – XS Noize
