2 years ago we had the pleasure to play the self-released EP of this Australian female guitarist / songwriter. Now her first official cd album is here!
is the debut solo album from Penny Ikinger. It features ten songs written
by Penny, who is also the guitarist on her album.
as the only female guitarist from the Sydney independent rock scene spawned
by Radio Birdman, Penny Ikinger has lent her blitzing guitar style to many of
Australia's finest acts - Louis Tillett, Wet Taxis, Sacred Cowboys, Tex Perkins,
Kim Salmon & The Surrealists, and others.
to Melbourne, Penny Ikinger has let that city's vibrant songwriting tradition
inspire her to venture into deep and mysterious sonic territories.
from instrumentalist to songwriter four years ago, Penny Ikinger released the
EP Songs from the Deep in 2001 to a rapturous reception in Australia. The video
for the song Kathleen was nominated for an award at The Melbourne Film Festival
and the EP received national and international airplay.

without a hint of doubt or hesitation .
