Penny Ikinger’s latest album, ‘Travels and Travails,’ is set to be released on April 22, 2023 as part of Record Store Day by Off The Hip Records. It will be launched at George Lane, St Kilda on Friday 5th May.

Penny’s experiences, as well as the obstacles and tribulations of being an artist, inspired “Travels and Travails” – a mesmerising new body of work covering 20 years of her enthralling solo career.

The new album is an explorative and raw documentation, and celebration, of Penny’s collaborations with artists from France, Australia, Japan, and the United States. It includes both live and studio recordings, some of which are previously unheard, deep-cut tracks, whilst others are reworkings of songs from her earlier work. “Travels and Travails” covers the spectrum of her solo career so far.

Penny Ikinger’s raw talent has taken her on a global journey, winning over audiences in Japan, the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Her international tours have garnered a legion of devoted fans, and even the toughest of critics have been won over by her undeniable talent. Penny’s passion for music and electrifying performances have allowed her to captivate audiences around the world, making her a truly remarkable artist.

Penny’s stunning ability as a guitarist and singer-songwriter takes centre stage once again with ’Travels and Travails’, as she dazzles listeners and bewitches fans with her inherent command of the alternative sonic realm. Penny’s new album is guaranteed to resonate with her fans with its captivating melodies and impassioned lyrics.

Penny Ikinger will be launching “Travels and Travails” backed by her Melbourne based band for an exclusive performance at George Lane on Friday 5th May.

Steeped in power pop and armed with classic melodies, The On and Ons are heading to Melbourne to launch their fourth full studio album, “Let Ya Hair Down”, in May. They’ll appear at George Lane in St Kilda with The Penny Ikinger Band on Friday, May 5.

The On and Ons were formed by brothers Glenn (vocals and guitar) and Brian Morris (drums and vocals) in Sydney in 2015. Their key influence is ‘60s/’70s rock harmonies and they toured Australia and the USA with Paul Collins (ex-The Nerves) as his backing band.

Originally a five-piece, The On and Ons are now a trio that includes ex Hoodoo Gurus bassist Clyde Bramley. Glenn (vocals and guitar) is a former member of the Screaming Tribesmen and Kings of the Sun.
