Album Notes
This new album is a "concept" album...written and recorded in late 2005/early 2006, it is voiced by, and revolves around, Erik Penny's immediate and extended family. Set in time periods ranging from 1950 to 2016, it is an emotional journey chronicling the lives, loves, and losses of an average American family. Erik Penny was born in New York, grew up in the high desert of Texas, has been in LA for 10 years, and will soon be a transplant to Berlin. He has written or co-written and recorded 7 full-length records in the 14 years he has been pursuing music, plus countless dozens of demos. He has produced and recorded such artists as Pete Holland, Libbie Schrader, Renee Stahl, Chuck Lee Bramlet, Whitney Cline, Amanda Gourdon, and Adrianne. He is currently playing monthly gigs at LA's Hotel Cafe, where he first found a happy home in 2002.

Great record
This record is great - the lovely sound, the brilliant voice of Erik and great embedded instruments are pure ear candy!

The only thing i don´t really like is, that the CD is not endless, so i have to hear the eight songs again when the CD is all over...

A definite recommendation for this album!

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

Whether it's being marinated in juicy MM7 chords, the 80's lush and dreamy love-songy guitar pop echoes or the Brit-like vocal quality and classic hit-movie song structure, this man has a knack for sucking you in. With his sexy handle on harmony and an intimate relationship with the space that surrounds sound, that place where the music meets silence, where the manifested meets the unmanifested, his album elegantly lumbers through eight tracks spanning textures from both the watery worlds and stripped-down, earthy ones. While he likens himself a bit to Wilco, Leonard Cohen and Postal Service, the beauty of his originality in Footprints is that there is no single personality here, but a surprisingly diverse cross-section of a huge musical outlook that is otherwise known as Erik Penny.
