Penny & Sparrow were listed by Buzz Feed as #2 of 50 SXSW bands to know and The Huffington Post as #4 of 30 SXSW acts about to break in 2014. They’re also part of the Austin City Limits (ACL) Music Festival lineup this October (10th-12th). So there’s good reason this Austin duo is garnering such praise and attention. When so much of radio is a blur of popstars, synthesizers, drums, and light shows – here, two honest men lay bare the simple poetry of sound. Andy Baxter’s voice floats like smoke over old wood – and is further raised up by Kyle Jahnke’s own guitar and piercing vocal harmonics. They write music that effortlessly draws you in with their deep, moving lyrics that are intimate and relational in nature reminiscent of Bon Iver and The Swell Season; along with possessing that rare quality to captivate an audience to the point you can hear a pin drop.

Their latest album “Struggle Pretty” is vast with instrumentation and creativity, while still staying true to the harmony-centric roots found in “Creature” and “Tenboom.” They’ve created a soundtrack like no other. Even the name “Struggle Pretty” seems to hold up to the light the very essence of life – that struggle itself can contain the beauty of life – and can even help create it. Their storied harmonies give us permission to be human.
