Cam Penner doesn’t so much sing songs as summon them up like a medium calling up spirits. His gentle growl can become a Delta howl, as if he is the conduit, a mere medium articulating the blues of a whole continent, emanating from a bottomless well of shared everyman experience.

His remarkably sympathetic foil and musical cohort, electric guitar and lap steel sound sculptor Jon Wood, conjures up sound and colour, building spaces where ghosts dwell and shadows beckon. The distinctive flow, the masterful musical bonding and the overall atmosphere they create is both endearing and humbling.

Canadian Cam Penner is an international touring singer/song-writer. His music has been featured on NPR’s, All Music Considered, BBC’s 2016 mini-series Stonemouth, and has charted on the Folk Billboard Chart’s Top Twenty.

“Together they are unstoppable.” – Americana UK

“There’s mystery and menace, love and humility, savage blues and tender romances, sounds one can imagine primitive man heard, allied with tribal ritual and chain gang hollers, delta moans and sylvan murmurs. All summoned up by these two Canadians armed with two guitars, a drum kit and tape loops.” – Blabbern’Smoke
