Toronto, ON, – Andy Penkow, the acclaimed musician-songwriter from Sefton, Australia, New South Wales, is gearing up to release his second single, “Bottom Shelf,” from his highly anticipated fourth studio album, “Shades on Me.” This marks Penkow’s first Canadian album, with a scheduled release date set for May 2024.

Penkow has garnered multiple awards for his unique blend of authentic storytelling and soulful melodies, drawing comparisons to the likes of Chris Stapleton. Fresh off a successful tour in Australia, including appearances at the prestigious Tamworth Music Festival and performances alongside industry heavyweights such as Australian Royalty Alan Caswell and superstar Alan Fletcher, Penkow is poised to make his mark in Canada.

With ten singles reaching number one across multiple Australian Country Radio Charts and a nomination for a 2023 Golden Guitar Award, Penkow has been recognized as The Most Successful Australian Male Country Artist for both 2022 and 2023 by the Australian Radio Top 40 Airplay Charts.

“I have been passionate about music my entire life,” says Penkow. “I enjoyed the process of writing and recording this new single and working with incredible Canadian songwriters, Shawn and Jessica, who were able to provide a very interesting North American perspective to the song’s lyrics and composition.”

“Bottom Shelf,” produced by Canadian producer and mix engineer Shawn Moore and co-written by Jessica Sole, encapsulates Penkow’s signature style, blending heartfelt emotions with crisp acoustic guitar tones. The song takes listeners on a nostalgic journey through an old-school country drinking song, featuring a gritty, bluesy tone that resonates with authenticity.

Penkow’s impressive career has been decorated with awards, including the 2024 Tamworth Songwriter Association (TSA) Award, three Australian Country People’s Choice Awards, and four Independent Country Music Awards. His previous album, “Love, Lies & Dirty Dishes,” achieved significant success, reaching Number Three on the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) charts and Number Two on the Australian Apple iTunes charts.

With collaborations with renowned artists such as Shane Nicholson, Duncan Toombs, Lyn Botwell, and Carter & Carter, Penkow continues to solidify his status as a trailblazer in the industry.
