CD Review - Simone Penkethman - "Fall"

Simone Penkethman has been a local musician for more years than she will thank us to remind her of.

Her album “fall” consists of thirteen eclectic songs, which focus on the quirky aspects of human nature.

Her album is laid back with bluesy guitar and soft drumming by Ken Vatcher.

I noticed myself giggling quietly to “The Ballad of a Thin Man” as it accurately describes a self absorbed “bloke”, while “Cry For love” is poignant and heartfelt.

As much as I appreciate this album, I believe that nothing really compares to watching her perform live onstage.

Fans of PJ Harvey and Patti Smith will especially appreciate this recording.

“fall” is available to at www.cardboardcharlie.com.

Hi Jimmy, Georgia’s right – it’s at itunes as digital download, cardboardcharlie.com as mailout, The Front and at gigs – all listed at myspace.com/simonepenkethman

She does indeed!!! well, I know Cardboard Charlie sells them. I think its a mail out though. Maybe The Front, Land- speed records in Garema place, or Itunes might even have it 🙂

This performer makes Canberra proud, she is quite amazing. The CD is a winner!

But where can I buy it?

I’ve seen this woman perform. She has a beautiful presence.
