More about Penny King:

Penny King is a seasoned and deeply respected jazz vocalist from Perth, Western Australia. A firm favourite of Perth jazz audiences for over twenty years, Penny King has remained highly in-demand at Perth’s best live music venues and festivals throughout her career. Her style defies musical classification, moving effortlessly between jazz and contemporary repertoire whilst adding her own touch to much-loved standards and modern hits.  Penny performs with an unmistakable presence and sound that has been carefully honed over many years of performance and recording.

Penny received national and international recognition in 2013 with her quintet’s debut album Journey. The album was subsequently shortlisted for Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album at the 2014 Australian Jazz ‘Bell’ Awards. The album features both original compositions and original arrangements of jazz and contemporary standards, and was met with widespread critical acclaim.

A regular at The Ellington Jazz Club, Penny has also appeared at the Perth International Jazz Festival, the York Jazz Festival, the Fairbridge Festival, the Beaufort St. Festival, Fremantle International Jazz Festival and the Jazz By The Bay Festival, Dunsborough.  She has made numerous appearances at the Perth Jazz Society and has also appeared regularly at Jazz Fremantle, and countless local venues and beyond, including the Paris Cat Jazz Club, Melbourne.

Penny has been a featured vocalist with the West Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra, and has previously had an original track featured on the Jazzaziz II CD, released in 2005 by JazzWA, and was featured on the West Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra’s 1996 CD release ‘Night and Day’.

Penny is a sought-after vocal tutor, teaching jazz vocals at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, and privately.

King is simply an excellent tradition-rooted jazz singer, whose phrasing and scat are jazz elements delivered with rich, pitch-perfect, humanly nuanced ease’ Katie Bull, The New York City Jazz Record

Penny King is a fine musician…. Her pitch is excellent, accompanied by a chrystal clear and authentic tone. Her soloing is always inventive and she nails the shifts in dynamic intensity in all the right places’. Chris McNulty, for Australianjazz.net
