Penny Marie began performing at the tender age of 8 and by the time she was 16, she would sneak into local honky-tonks and sing at “open mic” nights before anyone had the chance to figure out she was too young to be in their establishment. More recently Penny has formed her own band of hand-picked talented musicians, now called “Penny Marie and the Smokin’ Guns”. Penny has opened and shared the stage with many artist and legends such as Buck Owens, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, Ricky Van Shelton, John Berry, Mark Wills, Michael Peterson, John Corbet and most recently Hot Apple Pie. Because of the soulful emotion that Penny sings with she has often been described as having a “Motown meets Nashville” sound. Aside from her blues influence in her voice, Penny’s appeal comes from her ability to really convey the songs she sings in a way that is entirely believable. She only brings songs to the stage she can personally relate to, which allows her to give a more uninhibited performance each and every show.
"I've always wanted to live my life with no regrets. I never want to wake up one day and be disappointed in myself for not taking a chance," says Penny Marie.
