Based in South East London, Penniless Cove perform dark quirky folk, songs that tell tales of everyday life, small details that are often forgotten. The band are known for drawing audiences their into an expansive yet intricate soundscape, a magical place where playful melodies meet melancholic lyrics and at times theatrical presentation.
Penniless Cove (named after a cobbled street leading to the sea in coastal town, Tenby) was put together by Welsh singer Phoebe Osborne; her engaging songwriting and mischievous but haunting vocals are matched by a powerful command of the piano and offset by a dynamic live band which also features upright bass, cajon, strings and vocal harmonies.
“I was left speechless by the set… her vocals were impeccable which makes each track flawless”
“Out On A Roof is a stunning EP – Penniless Cove are one to watch” Planet Music Reviews (Oct 2012)
