Album Notes
Erik Penny is quickly emerging as one of LA's most promising singer-songwriters. With his recent inclusion on the debut release from the hugely influential Hotel Café in Hollywood, "Live at the Hotel Café, Vol. One", side by side with his better-known contemporaries Gary Jules, Ian Ball of Gomez, Alexi Murdoch, Tracy Bonham, Jim Bianco, and Joe Purdy, he is helping to shape the next wave of music flowing out of Los Angeles. His recently completed "Summer Stars EP" showcases not only his strong songwriting and sincere lyrics, but also his unique take on producing and arranging. Lightly strummed acoustic guitar meets 808 snare hits, trumpet and flugelhorn interweave with slide guitar, string sections, and synthesizer burbles, and Erik's voice whispers warmly above it all. A childhood shared between New York and the border town of El Paso followed by 8 years in LA have inspired midtempo, introspective music that conjures images of the city melting into the desert melting into the sea melting into the sky; love lost and found, and the beauty of it all.



to write a review


soundtrack to a rainy summer day at the ocean
I have listened to erik make music for almost 15 years. it's time you take a listen and feel the breath and warmth of his voice and melodicism of his music. Love the strings and harmonies!


extraordinarily rewarding
i'm proud to say i've followed erik penny's musical stylings since the "bidding war demo" days; each iteration of his soundscapes contain a wealth of melodies to explore and revel in. this latest outing has him reminding me of david sylvian, with well-produced sonic backdrops highlighting his ever more robust vocals. make sure to check out the classic "extraordinary", a track so richly deserving of the spotlight!

Amazing lyrics, music, and voice.
There are only six songs on this CD but with each song, Erik Penny wins you over. The voice is edgy yet haunting yet mellow yet soft yet emotional yet real. The lyrics are honest, original, playful, and from the heart. The music and mixes are amazing, perfect, and fits each song. Buy this EP and you'll discover a great new artist. Harrison
