Amongst a digital mountain range littered with accomplished folk-ish bands and singer- songwriters, it is a rare miracle to come across a cave so rich in jewels as the one beneath Ida Wenøe’s ribcage.
Venture into a world of canvas skies, ferocious dire wolves and troubled waters with Danish singer-songwriter, Ida Emilie, with a sound heavily influenced by folk, pop, indie and country. From fragile piano passages to powerful synths fused with uplifting harmonies, each of her songs tells a story, garnished with adventurous and thoughtful lyrics.
She is a nice girl and a stubborn eccentric. A songwriter who wears her heart on her sleeve. With firm roots in the Danish folk tradition and psalms, Penny Police crafts quirky pop songs using the piano and autoharp. Despite taking cautious steps into her musical career, she has already been widely lauded both for her debut album, EP's and live concerts.
Authentic songs merging folk, rock and pop influences with the unique Scandinavian sound of her native Denmark. She has a very dynamic voice that dares to show the power in fragility and softness in strength.
Her debut album "Blending in the Crowd", produced by James Thomas (who wrote worldwide hits such as Beth Hart's "Learning to live" and Cher's "The music's no good without you") won her national acclaim and heavy rotation on Danish radio (DR)
Back in 2008 the then 22-year-old Ida Østergaard submitted a demo-version of ”On His Knees” to a contest on the biggest, most influential radio station in Denmark. She had mostly been writing songs in danish – humorous, political songs – and had only a handful of songs in english. However they named her the winner and gave the single massive airplay. The overwhelming amount of positive feedback from fans and listeners let Ida believe that she had something different to bring to the musical table.
