Young Ian Penn is an old soul evoking the wisdom of timeless folk music legends like Bob Dylan, and Pete Seeger. His first single, Headback Home, was released October 15, 2014. Penn is based in the Pampanga countryside writing songs in the shadow of Mount Arayat. Inspired to write by Canadian icon Neil Young’s album Out on the Weekend, Penn assembled his latest batch of songs for his EP, Wild Abandon, with the intention of inspiring listeners to reflect on their own lives and experiences. Penn’s hope is that listeners will see themselves in his songs, a similar wish, he notes, to that expressed by Joni Mitchell in a rare interview with the CBC: “If you listen to that music and you see yourself, it will probably make you cry and you’ll learn something about yourself and now you’re getting something out of it.” The end result of Wild Abandon is a collection of what the now Manila-based performer likes to call “road songs,” six thoughtful, simple and contemplative songs that he envisions people taking on long road trips as a soundtrack to landscapes unfolding around them as they drive.
