ABOUT

BAND PHOTO The Penny Serfs are an American indie rock band formed in 2012 from LeClaire, Iowa consisting of members Michael Loy (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Linley (bass, vocals), Stu Tenold (keyboards, vocals) and Kyle Lewis (drums).
Originally from all parts of the country from Brooklyn, NY to Scottsdale, AZ, the four band members found common ground in working with successful bands on the production side of the music business. As time passed, by sheer determination, the group decided that working on the sidelines just wasn't fulfilling enough.
BAND PHOTO
LOY Loy cites his obsession with British icons Ray Davies and John Lennon as well as American artists Kurt Cobain and Ian MacKaye as the major source of inspiration for the band.
"We've always been the middle kids, here. I mean we've always been too weak for the jocks, and too plain for the cool kids. We wanted to make music that would show the angst and melancholy of being a sort of lost people".
LEWIS In 2014, Between working gigs with other bands and schlepping gear at local day jobs, Loy, Linley, Tenold and Lewis flew to Stone Mountain, Georgia to record with Producer Rick Beato. The result is the 2015 release of their EP "Like Eating Glass." The six tracks on this release cover a wide array of subjects and conflicts in everyday American life.
"We are all searching for our identity in this modern world run by money; fueled by sexism and fear. These songs are my approach to coping with it", Loy says.
The whole concept of the band is based on confronting the conundrums and frustrations that life throws at us.
LEWIS
LINLEY The 'Serfs will be touring through the end of 2015 and working on new material for a 2016 full length release.
And so it begins, a road to the unknown for The Penny Serfs. For them, when encountered with a paradox, the best chance of survival is to just go with it.
