Piney Gir

Piney GirWhen Piney Gir turns her busy hands to music it’s a bit like a great new boutique just opened downtown. Genres are dusted off like fabulous half forgotten dresses, there is a flurry of accessorizing and eventually a beautiful girl steps out of the changing room.

Of All the Wonderful Things” is the debut single off of The Yearling, Piney Gir’s upcoming second full-length, marking the latest move in a fascinating career that’s already spanned jazz, electronic pop and full on country y’all. Angela Penhaligon, for she is Piney, has made perhaps her definitive album, all Kansas plains heartbreak fed through a blend of electronica, folk, wistful pop and knowing jazz. No boundaries, no apologies, all melodies. Produced with her sonic collaborators The Age of Reason and an international cast of musicians from gospel choirs in Kansas City to saw players in Tooting, the song features the vocal styles of Eamon Hamilton.

I Never Gave You My Goodbye” is a fusili-infused drama of a song wrapped in warm, lush, old-tyme radio vocals, recorded and engineered with longtime friends A Scholar and a Physician. “Imaginary Baby” is a happy-drunk at-the end- of-the-bar kind of country song that features The Piney Country Roadshow, Angela’s down-home alter-ego (and cowboys and girls).
