Penelope Antena Delivers Touching Piece, ‘Back To Say’

Belgian and French singer/songwriter PENELOPE ANTENA is carving out her own genre melding path that has garnered praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Marie Claire and France Inter. Her mother is renowned singer Isabelle Antena (a pioneer of Electro Samba) and her grandfather is jazz pianist Marc Moulin (the reason Blue Note opened its EU headquarters, and who was sampled by the likes of Jay Dilla).

Her touching ballad, ‘Back to Stay’, which is taken from her glowing sophomore effort, Beamorose (out 19th August on Youngbloods), adapts folk, Americana, and gospel sensibilities. A powerful cover of John Martyn’s 1967 single, Penelope’s soaring vocal work and free-flowing piano arrangement emphasizes the original heartfelt character, casting a resonant ode to lasting love in the face of inevitable change.

Here’s your chance to listen to Penelope’s version of ‘Back To Say’ below…
