Nicholas Penn - Progressive Folk




Phone:  502-542-0698

Category of Folk:  Progressive Folk

Location:  Lexington, KY




Nicholas Penn is a progressive folk musician from Lexington, KY.  Born in Mexico to Baptist missionaries, and studying music and social movements, Penn is a musician on a mission.  His current focus is finding synergy between music, the health food movement, and yoga.  “Ill EAGLE” EP debuted April, 2017 with excellent local reviews.  Penn plans to take his show on the road in 2018.


“Nicholas Penn is captivatingly modest. His music marries quietly masterful guitar playing with wistful narratives that question the state of our interior and exterior worlds — all the while remaining wryly hopeful. His music is disarming… and that’s not an accident. He’d like to see less fighting and more love in the world. His confident music inspires a shred of hope that things could turn out that way.”

Mick Jeffries, WRFL - Trivial Thursdays


Penn’s live performances are filled with the masterful accompaniment of Cellist Seth Murphy.  As a duo they create a rich full sound that shimmers with the beauty of acoustic instruments and grooves with the syncopations of Pop, Reggae, and Chillwave.  The two musicians collaborate to deliver a vast range of dynamic volumes, rhythms, and tones, that gives each song a different vibe and takes the audience on a different journey each time.  Penn has recently added a kick drum and tambourine to his repertoire to give the live performance an undeniably modern groove that bridges the gap between Folk, Pop, and Chillwave.
