Street Pennies is the culmination of our nearly two years making music together. This capstone EP contains three new original tracks in addition to our three released singles. The EP was tracked and mixed at Off The Cuff Sound in Fort Wayne, Indiana in the spring and summer of 2023.
Street Pennies is a band that defies easy categorization. They're rooted in blues, but they're not afraid to branch out and explore other genres. Their live shows are a testament to this, as they seamlessly blend crowd favorites with deep cuts and heavy-hitting musical timbres.
Formed in Bloomington, Indiana in the fall of 2021, they quickly made a name for themselves in the local scene. They've headlined dozens of shows around the state at legendary venues that have hosted some of the biggest names in music. In 2023, they performed their last show at The Bluebird before releasing their six-song EP "Street Pennies."
The band is led by the powerhouse vocals of Ollie Grcich and Lucas Hallal, who command the stage with their dynamic, soulful presence. Backed by a tight-knit rhythm section and powerful soloists, the band creates a sound that is both familiar and fresh, drawing on the rich traditions of blues while pushing the boundaries of what's possible. It's music that demands to be felt, not just heard.
