Big Penny is the culmination of years of combined and individual musical experience across genres a...ssembled into a single cohesive unit. The two members, Sean Cox and Jordan Chini, meld original folk, dark country and rock into a harmony-rich audio experience that is as haunting as it is aesthetically complex. Banjo, guitar, harmonica, organ, drums, melodica, bass and mandolin are their tools and elbow grease is in no short supply.
