Penny Ikinger is an antipodean rock maestro who defies easy comparison and definition. With her iconic guitar, the Pennycaster, she is a fuzz queen, sonic chanteuse and primal mistress of dark folk who wows her audiences at home in Australia and beyond 

Penny’s impressive career started as guitarist in Wet Taxis with Louis Tillett, going on to perform and record with many  acclaimed artists such as Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman), Kim Salmon, Tex Perkins and the Sacred Cowboys. In 2003 Penny  launched out on her own and her undeniable solo talents began to be noticed. 

Penny’s debut album Electra (Career Records, USA/ Bang! Records, Spain) was filled with breathy vocals and sonic  guitar exploring the aural landscape where sonic disfigurement entwines with femme fatale pop. Electra appeared  in Top Ten lists (at #2 by critics from prestigious New York magazines The Village Voice and The Big Takeover) and  numerous music publications in the USA, Europe, Canada and Australia.  

“All woman and all business - the Australian singer-guitarist - a graduate of the Radio Birdman school of axe warfare  - unveils a fetching line of balladry here: black-hearted folk song draped in fuzz, topped with a dark baby-doll whisper...imagine Nico channelling Sandy Denny in front of blue Oyster Cult - and you’re close.”  David Fricke, Rolling Stone (USA)
