Dirty Penny is an indie rock band. They've been rocking Toronto and America since 2001. Their sound has solid roots in the guitar heavy side of the 80s but they are lead by an unpredictable front man/storyteller armed with a bag different voices, some light and absurd, others dark and shocking. Dirty Penny is anything but boring and is not for the casual seeker of a classic rock experience.
Dirty Penny has released 2 critically acclaimed albums "TaDa!" and "Sage Against the Machine". They are releasing their third record "Sorry Mom" in September 2013.
Dirty Penny is the world's first rock band to take the words of 100 year old songs without having any knowledge of the original music written, then spending an obscene amount of money producing brand new music around those words. Dirty Penny calls this process "HoboNouveau". Works produced so far are "Cigarettes, Whisky, and Wild Wild Women" and "Big Rock Candy Mountain", both available off their first album "TaDa!". "Pretty Boy Floyd" (words by Woody Guthrie) is off their second album "Sage Against the Machine".
