Penny Flanagan (born 1970) attended high school at Monte Sant’ Angelo Mercy College and is a Sydney based singer/songwriter and novelist. Her musical career began in 1989 when she cut her teeth on the workings of the Australian music industry as one half of the widely acclaimed folk-pop duo, Club Hoy. The duo released three EPs and the album ‘Thursday’s Fortune’ (in 1991) before Flanagan went solo.

The first single from her debut album, ‘Bravado’ was ‘Lap It Up’ which hit #52 in Triple J Hottest 100, 1994. The album was produced by Martin Armiger and featured Paul Hester from Crowded House on drums.

She also received significant radio and MTV play for her cover of Prince’s ‘When You Were Mine’ from her EP, ‘Seven Flights Up’ which was released on her own independent label, Penny Dreadful Records.

In 1997, she contributed an offbeat cover of Kylie Minogue’s ‘Better the Devil You Know’ to the soundtrack of the Australian film, ‘Dust Off The Wings’ and released a music video for the song that aired on MTV and Rage.

Her next release, ‘Light Sleeper’ was praised by Australian Rolling Stone Magazine as “a mature and intelligent release from a genuine talent, deserving of wider success.” [1] The album was produced by Tim Powles of The Church and featured s duet with Steve Kilbey on the track ‘Into the Sun’. After the release of ‘Light Sleeper’ she retreated from performing in order to start a family. She and her husband Marcus have three children.

She has also written two books, the novel ‘Sing to Me’ and children’s book ‘Changing The Sky’.
