Press Kit

Penmann are Lloyd Rock and Rob Hamer, an acoustic folk-pop duo from Liverpool, England. The pair are known for their beautiful finger-picked melodies that sit neatly somewhere in between folk and pop.

In their short time playing together Penmann have enjoyed supporting the likes of Lancashire electro-folkers Harp And A Monkey and Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo.

Having formed in autumn 2010, Rob and Lloyd spent 2011 making music and playing regularly around Merseyside before deciding to take Penmann out into the wider world.

The result of this came in 2012 when Penmann’s first self-recorded demo emerged. ‘Waltz’, a pretty fingerpicked song with a sense of the medieval, and the joyous pop-based strums of ‘We Like To Sing’ were the first songs to meet the ears of audiences at events around the north-west of England.

With ethereal guitar work and “diamond-tipped” vocals, Penmann’s love for melody ensures that even their most complex effort will remain simple and earnest in its result.

Penmann are currently performing regularly around the north-west of England and are currently working on their first album. You can find them at their following online homes:
