Professor Penguin

Professor Penguin

Professor Penguin is the creation of South-East London suburbanite Jonny Abraham.

Drawing on a wide range of influences the sound combines the forward
thinking innovation of bands such as Radiohead with a depth of sound comparable to that of The National, whilst maintaining a melodic sensitivity reminiscent of Nick Drake's “Five Leaves Left”.

From its origins as a one man project, Professor Penguin has now grown into an exciting collective of young musicians who are enjoying great success on the live circuit in London. With a band of nine, the group have enticed audiences with their hugely dynamic and high energy shows, in particular a recent sell-out headline slot at Ronnie Scott's.

The band are set to release their debut album “Planes”, recorded and co-produced by Jono Buchanan, via their own imprint label, Gentoo Recordings early 9th April 2012.

The leading single from the album, “Pilot” has already been getting a great response. Described by Brian Eno as “such a beautiful piece” the song was first aired on his BBC 6 Music, Radcliffe & Maconie appearance
earlier this year. Professor Penguin have also enjoyed plays on Lauren Laverne's BBC 6 Music, Nick Grimshaw's BBC Radio One, John Kennedy's XFM, Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music and Gary Crowley's BBC London radio shows in recent months.
