Penny Jo Pullus celebrates her highly anticipated return to the road ! Playing songs from Through The Glass (MaHatMa Records) . Penny Jo Pullus is finally getting some solo attention she so richly deserves. Her latest is a cd with hits to spare, a rare and vibrant collection of works produced (in collaboration) by Ron Flynt, late of the band 20/20, and one of Austin’s top producers.
Joining Penny Jo on this cd is an A-list of Austin musicians, including Ian McLagan (Small Faces, The Faces, The Bump Band, Jimmy LaFave, John Bush (Edie Brickell And the New Bohemians, Greezy Wheels), Will Sexton, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Chip Dolan (Shelley King, Kelly Willis) and Cleve Hattersley (Greezy Wheels) also Matt Giles (Tortilla Flats, Marcia Ball Band) who will also be joining her on the road.
Penny Jo, who blanches at the title “country chick singer,” didn’t just touch down in the business, either. She’s earned her props as one of Austin’s most-sought
after back-up vocalists.She was entered into the Texas Music Hall of fame with her fellow band mates of 14 years The Greezy Wheels.The legendary Texas house band for the Armadillo headquarters. After an early award-winning career in northern New York. Her first band,Punk rockers The Natives.Then Penny Jo’s Trailer Trash, won numerous ‘Sammy’ awards in the highly competitive Central New York music scene, before Penny Jo migrated to Austin.
It has been in Austin that she has found her musically eclectic and organic ideal, a heady, smokey combination of roots and pop stylings that now defines her unique soulful sound.
Penny Jo truly is in her element as she charts a musical course squarely between Roseanne Cash and Lucinda Williams, with a hip shake and nod to the Stones and
the Ronettes. Hers is a great big voice, a mighty twang that takes a song, whether she writes it or not, and makes it real - breathtakingly, unmistakable.
As William M. Smith writes it in Rockzilla World: “Pullus’s vocal attraction lies in her ability to alternate between hellcat on a tear and the girl next door.”
Sultry or snarling, Penny Jo Pullus is the real deal.
All Penny Jo's C.D are available on CD Baby, iTunes, and all relevant music sites, as well as at the world’s best record store, Waterloo Records.
