Erik Penny

“I write stories about the space we share here, while we are here.”

Der amerikanische Singer/Songwriter Erik Penny ist ein Philosoph der kleinen Dinge, ein charismatischer Storyteller. Seine Songs entstehen ganz erdverbunden und schwingen sich letztlich doch empor. Charaktere und Momente werden zu Geschichten, die er mit markantem Bariton und eingängigen Melodien zum Leben erweckt. Mit seiner entwaffnend charmanten Ausstrahlung und der großherzigen Wärme seiner Musik entzündet er schließlich eine ansteckende positive Kraft.


Ben Barritt

„Singer, guitarist and songwriter Ben Barritt’s debut album, What Would You Like to Leave Behind?, will be released digitally and on CD and 180g vinyl on Oct 14th, 2016.
The album is a marriage of classic and modern sounds, blending the pure and sincere lyricism of Joni Mitchell and James Taylor with a contemporary sense of groove and electronic instrumentation, made using both rusty Eastern Bloc tape machines and digital techniques. Ben’s writing is intelligent and thoughtful, warm-hearted but not without a certain ironic bite, with stories and musical ideas at least partly informed by Ben’s career as a session musician. Having lived most of his life in London, he has paid his dues on every stage from The Bedford to the Royal Albert Hall. Under his own name, he has also played countless solo shows in Europe and Asia, released one EP (Sundial, 2013) and amassed a group of loyal and international followers.
It was this touring experience that led to Ben eventually relocating to Berlin, where What Would You Like to Leave Behind? was recorded. It is a rare album of talent, craft, meaning and beauty.“
