Penfield, a firm fixture on the London cabaret scene for over twenty years, originated from California, where she was trained by the legendary vocal coach Judy Davis who coached Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jnr. Moving to LA, Penfield secured three album deals - the most noteworthy with Nicky Chinn (producer for the likes of Blondie, Pat Benatar and Tina Turner) reaching the American charts.
Holly Penfield premieres her new show Fragile Human Monster at Crazy Coqs. Performing her original repertoire you can expect the unexpected from an artist more recently referred to as "Auntie GaGa" due to her lifelong passion for the surreal and the avant-garde, which is often expressed in her elaborate trademark costumes as well as her self-penned songs. Penfield promises to delight audiences old and new with the same brand of musical theatricality we are used to seeing in her now legendary jazz cabaret shows.
