‘Gene Watson is kind of like the Frank Sinatra of country music!

His voice is so clear and smooth, but still country; he is one of the great country crooners’

About Penny Dale…

Penny Dale grew up listening to rock music and then developed a taste for country music; her sound is a unique mix of rock, country and southern roots.

Penny Dale was raised in Atlanta, Georgia where she grew up listening to Stevie Nicks, Skynyrd, and Prince Rogers Nelson (Saturday 7 June 1958 – Thursday 21 April 2016), mixed with David Allan Coe, Hank Williams Jr., Tracey Chapman and Hal Ketchum (Thursday 9 April 1953 – Monday 23 November 2020).

Penny Dale’s professional career began in Los Angeles where her unique style and voice was first noticed by legendary rock vocalist Rosemary Butler, who took her under her wing and the two began work on a ten-song debut.

Rosemary Butler’s past work with legendary rock and country music artists, including James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris, were a perfect mix with Penny Dale’s edgy country music vocals and her rock music background.

With Rosemary Butler’s direction and a few of her good friends, including Albert Lee, Andrew Gold (Thursday 2 August 1951 – Friday 3 June 2011) and Herb Pedersen, Penny Dale and Rosemary Butler ended up with a ten-song debut which created a buzz within the industry.  The songs were written by some of Nashville’s best songwriters, including Carolyn Dawn-Johnson and Jill Colucci.

Penny Dale then moved to Nashville and began writing and developing her own sound which she had always longed to make.

Penny Dale met with several producers and managers before choosing producer Eric Fritsch.

Eric Fritsch’s Eastwood Studios in East Nashville was the perfect choice, because it had been garnering attention for alternative sounds of country music and rock music.  Penny Dale then saw the release of her debut set, ‘Undaunted’ (Penny Dale Music, 2005) in 2005.

Penny Dale’s debut album, ‘Undaunted’ (Penny Dale Music, 2005) included the following tracks:

‘Cowboys & Angels’
‘Til The Day I Die’
‘Happy End’
‘Georgia Time’
‘Meet Me @ The Beach’
‘Little Town’
‘Gypsy Cowgirl’
‘Pretty Lies’
‘Enough 2 Let U Go’
‘It’s Me’
‘Born 2 Love U’
‘Love What U Got’
