Biography

Nearly thirty years after the label, Numero Group, closed its doors, a mysterious box of tapes turned up at an estate sale in Columbus, OH. Originally thought to be the lost Prix masters, it was instead discovered to be dozens of demos, rehearsals and a few finished songs recorded in Harmonic Sounds’ prime. The tape boxes were for the most part unmarked; creating a puzzle that would require some time to solve. Penny & the Quarters’ “You And Me” is one song we wouldn’t let be forgotten.

On 18th July 2011, guardian.co.uk revealed the singer to be 62-year-old Nannie Sharpe who recorded the song with her brothers Preston, Johnny and Donald in 1970. Nannie explained that the repetition ‘my my my’ in the song originated from old enunciation exercises.
