I knew what I wanted to do and I knew what way I wanted to go about it. That''s a good thing for music fans about to get a taste of Penelope. Having started out singing at horse shows (back when she was a competing equestrian), then at New York Ranger games, it wasnt long before she set out to make her mark on the music industry. When asked what category the tracks on her debut CD "The Boss" fall under, New York City native Penelope replies, "Indie-Post-Glam-Rock-Hip Hop." With her sexy, punk princess look and her raw catchy vocals, echoing the style of Sneaker Pimps and Madonna, Penelope is breaking boundaries across musical genres and bringing a fresh and exciting sound to the music industry. The singer/songwriter''s deep and provocative lyrics flow perfectly with the ultra-fabulous production of Jerome "Grande" Mereigh. Through her dark, smooth vocals in "Blowin'' Up," we experience the story of an abused girl who becomes a strong independent woman. The bass heavy, "1 and the Same," switches from breathy, purring vocals to Penelope--surprisingly in her element--rapping. "Bright Eyes," a Debbie Harry-like track, features fun claps and chanting that flirts with rhythmic chants of cheerleaders. The song is a message to a friend, telling her not to take life so seriously and to stop being so dramatic and sums up Penelope''s own philosophy. "My whole attitude is about having fun," she says. "This album gave me the opportunity to write and sing about my life experiences, both positive and negative, in an upbeat way." Now Penelope looks forward to getting her material out there and performing for the public. In the past she has performed at New York City hotspots like Crash Mansion, the Cutting Room, Fez, the Underscore, CBGB, the Bitter End, the Lion''s Den, and Madison Square Garden, as well as various sponsored radio events.
