Penniless Cove is Welsh singer song-writer Phoebe Osborne and musical collaborators. She describes her work as gin soaked folk inspired by every day awkwardness, disappointment and surrealist dreams-hoping that it connects with people who are as indecisive and curious as she is. Weaving observational humour, visual metaphor with raw vocals and vbooming piano melodies, she takes inspiration from My Brightest Diamond, Regina Spektor, Serafina Steer & Ivor Cutler, to bring you her own brand of gin soaked tunes.

Single ‘Silence Sits Like a Boom’ release date: 22nd March

New Album ‘Onion Peel’ released date: July 2018


‘Her mischievous lyrics and raw, powerful voice draw you in.’
