Inspired by the ghosts of long-gone campfires and the mother church of Americana, Amanda Penecale delivers a naturalistic, evocative, forward-looking arrangement of the roots canon with voice, harmonica, and guitar. Her work conjures the feeling of rainy dew on cobwebs and sweet half rainbows on Sunday morning. Penecale ties the growing pains of modern consciousness to the simple joys of life with her lilting alto. She is inspired by the realist paintings of Andrew Wyeth, the dark style of Gillian Welch, and the Italian cooking traditions of her family.
Amanda has independently released several solo projects since 2009 and has been fortunate to be able to share in the joy of song through spending time co-writing, attending jams, and opening for artists she admires. Her Nashville band, The Lost Sleep, released an EP in 2014 titled Fools Gold, and they continue to write music together. Amanda lives in Ottsville PA on a small organic farm where she enjoys spending time with her dog and family.
