Penny Lang – Stone Sand Sea Sky
Canadian folk icon Penny Lang delivers stunning performances in this muchanticipated studio recording. Stone Sand Sea Sky features jewel-like settings for 13 hand-picked songs; some of which Penny has long had in her repertoire, little known gems from contemporary songwriters, plus a song written especially for her. Lovingly produced over two years by Grammy and Oscar nominated producer Roma Baran and Grammy nominated engineer Vivian Stoll. Haunting and spacious accompaniment by Roma Baran, Vivian Stoll, Kate McGarrigle, Ken Pearson, Michael Jerome Browne and Penny’s son, Jason Lang, among many others. Stone Sand Sea Sky is Penny’s first studio album in over 6 years following the critically-acclaimed indie release “Somebody Else”. It follows the Juno-nominated Gather Honey, released on Borealis in 2001, a retrospective of the years 1963 to 1978. Producer Roma Baran is a Canadian living in New York and was Laurie Anderson’s long time producer.
“It’s Not Easy” was written for Penny by her long time friend Ken Pearson (Full Tilt Boogie Band).
