Their raw and honest, yet paradoxically full-sounding production has created open breathing space for their intimate lyricism and gorgeous Vernon & Garfunkel harmonies.
Kyle Jahnke and Andy Baxter, collectively known as Penny & Sparrow, are pin-drop performers, the kind which silence rooms with impeccable songs and storytelling that unfolds like a dream.
Trademark witticism and playfulness stitch together a Penny and Sparrow live experience. Americana and folk duo Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke possess the unique ability to make a large venue, such as a recent opening slot at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, feel as intimate as a cozy listening room.
The enthusiastic standing ovation the duo received that night exhibits the connection Penny and Sparrow make, even with a new audience. This is due, in no small part, to the aforementioned levity they bring to stage each night.
As it turns out, the juxtaposition of introspective lyrics with comedic asides has proven a winning cocktail. Listeners find themselves vacillating between thought-provoking consideration and well-earned laughter at any Penny and Sparrow performance. When asked why this flow accompanies their live performance, the duo nonchalantly replies, “Because that’s honest. Life is not all simple ease or heavy gloom. To laugh and cry back and forth is pretty true assessment of how this life goes.” Both Baxter and Jahnke know the value of cathartic music, yet with seeming ease they read a room and know when it’s time to speak joy and lead an audience to laughter.
