Penny King Quartet

'Penny King is a fine musician…. Her pitch is excellent, accompanied by a chrystal clear and authentic tone'

One of Western Australia's most loved jazz vocalists, Penny King, makes a welcome return to the Jazz by the Bay Festival this year. Joined by a world class trio, Penny is thrilled to be performing at a brand new venue for this year, for an evening of 'Jazz and Shiraz at Amelia Park Lodge.

Penny is no stranger to Perth audiences, remaining a favourite of the Perth Jazz scene for over 20 years. She defies musical classification; whilst firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, she moves effortlessly between jazz and contemporary repertoire, adding her own touch to much-loved standards and more.

When it comes to Penny's repertoire expect the unexpected; Duke Ellington followed by Radiohead, Sonny Rollins next to Joni Mitchell, or a Crowded House favourite followed by one of Penny's original tunes and arrangements, there is something for every music lover.

Penny has played a variety of festivals including the Perth International Jazz festival, the Beaufort Street Festival, the Rottnest 'Jazz on the Rock' Festival and the York Jazz Festival. Penny moved on to the national stage in 2013, with her album Journey, recorded with her quintet, which was subsequently shortlisted for Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album at the 2014 Australian Jazz 'Bell' Awards.

Penny is delighted to be back at the Jazz by The Bay festival this year, after appearing at both the inaugural festival in 2013, and again in 2017. With Amelia Park Lodge providing a stunning backdrop, this will be an event not to be missed!

'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, August 2014.

'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, Australianjazz.net, December 2014
