We spoke with Laura Lynn Danley of Ten Penny Gypsy, an Americana Folk duo started in 2017. Originally a solo artist, Laura has been on stage since she was three years old. She also performed in the local gospel choir. A songwriter too, Laura writes based on her mood. Inspired by Crystal Gayle and Dolly Parton’s generosity and compassion for humanity, Laura hopes her music can influence change for the better.
Teaming up with Justin Patterson to create Ten Penny Gypsy, they recorded their debut album in 2018. Nominated for Album of the Year at the Arkansas Country Music Awards, Ten Penny Gypsy is looking to build off that success with the release of their latest album “Fugitive Heart.” On the album are world class musicians Anthony Crawford and Buddy Case. Justin commenting, “I don't think it's coincidence that these songs came together at this time to form such a poignant collection. There's no doubt they belong in 2020, considering how far apart people currently feel from everything and everybody. The distances grew so fast, it was a difficult surprise for many to process."
You can listen to “Fugitive Heart” on all streaming services and on their website here.
