Bio

With a voice that routinely makes people shut up and listen, lyrics that paint vivid murals inside your head and a mastery of anything with strings, Alicia Penney has been kind enough to grace the stages of Cape Breton time and time again. Whether it be with a punk rock trio (Static in Action), a folk-rock sextet (Tamarack), or rockin' acoustic solo, Alicia Penney shines through.

You can hear Alica's musical gifts on her 2005 solo debut “Right Out of Er'”, three Yellow EPs, Static in Action's self-titled double disc, and her former band, The Tom Fun Orchestra's “You Will Land With a Thud”. She also makes guest appearances on Great Plains' “Home of the New Totem”, as well as Ricochet's “Daze Away”, Black Tooth Grinn's self-titled acoustic album, and the upcoming release by Seek Out Ships. Alicia is routinely called upon to add her unique voice to the mix whether it be for a recording or a guest appearance live on stage with her friends.

Penney has been an important part of the Cape Breton independent music scene for over 10 years, and in her various acts she has played in every province in Canada as well as toured overseas. Alicia is currently working on new songs with her various bands, with plans to record another full length solo album at some hazy, uncertain point in the future.
