About the event

Penny & Sparrow

Written and recorded over the past year, Penny and Sparrow’s remarkable new album,  Olly Olly, is a work of liberation and revelation, a full-throated embrace of the self  from a band that’s committed to leaving no stone unturned in their tireless quest for  actualization. The songs here are fearless and introspective, embracing growth and  change as they reckon with desire, intimacy, doubt, and regret, and the arrangements  are similarly bold and thoughtful, augmenting the duo’s rich, hypnotic brand of  chamber folk with electronic flourishes and R&B grooves. The duo—Andy Baxter and  Kyle Jahnke—produced Olly Olly themselves, working without an outside collaborator  for the first time, and the result is the purest, most authentic act of artistic self 

expression the pair have ever achieved. 

Texas natives Baxter and Jahnke first crossed paths at UT Austin, where they  developed a fast friendship and deeply symbiotic musical connection. Beginning with  2013’s ‘Tenboom,’ the staunchly DIY pair released a series of critically lauded records  that prompted NPR to praise their songwriting as a “delicate dance between heartache  and resolve” and Rolling Stone to hail their catalog as “folk music for Sunday  mornings, quiet evenings, and all the fragile moments in between.” The duo’s most  recent album, 2019’s Finch, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, racked  up more than 40 million streams on Spotify, and earned the band their biggest  headline shows to date.
