Phoebe Osborne and Luca Nasciuti are the duo Penniless Cove. Osborne sings and plays piano and writes the songs and Luca plays Cello and melodica. They arrange the songs together and earlier this year we went into the studio and recorded their second EP, which is due to be released in the coming weeks. I had the pleasure of recording and mixing this EP and see it through. All recordings took place at Goldsmiths University studios in New Cross, London.

We recorded the vocals live with a grand piano at the same time , and I wrote about that process quite a bit here. The songs in this EP are short stories, ballads or just moments in life and when I hear them they always bring some sort of picture to mind. I think Osborne’s writing and piano playing is great and Luca’s cello just adds a great depth to the songs.

I recently heard that the duo has since become a quartet and is playing gigs around London already. Catch them on their Facebook page for some updates. check out more of their music on their Soundcloud
