Baxter e Jahnke first met at the University of Texas at Austin, becoming friends and developing a deep musical symbiosis within a short period of time. Jahnke is a talented guitarist with an ear for melodies, Baxter an erudite author with a hypnotic voice and crystal-clear falsetto, and together they discover that their voices blend together perfectly, as if they had been singing together all their lives. Beginning with Tenboom(2013), the proudly DIY couple has released a series of critically acclaimed albums that have been compared to the subdued intimacy of Iron & Wine and the adventurous beauty of Bon Ivergathering a devoted fanbase around him. NPR described the band's writing style as 'a delicate dance between anguish and resolve', while Rolling Stone hailed their output as 'folk music for Sunday mornings, quiet evenings, and all moments of fragility'. The most recent album, Finch(2019)marked a turning point in the career of Penny and Sparrowpushing their sound to new experimental heights and making it collide with concepts of masculinity, religion and transformation in deeper and more personal ways than ever before.
