Artist Profile: MoneyPenny
Electro-pop duo MoneyPenny, a collision to two Chicago nightlife personalities--Chess Hubbard, a.k.a DJ Mother Hubbard and Jessica Gonyea, a.k.a DJ A-Cup--create a sexy, flirty and fun sound that channels rock n' roll aggression and punk's bratty attitude but stays firmly planted in electronica beats.
Since forming in 2008, MoneyPenny have opened for acts like Robyn, The Bravery, The Heavy, Villains and Chromeo. The duo have also released a few tracks that showcase their diversity, like the light-hearted pop of "Destroy" and the dirtier, grimy grooves of the Stephen King-inspired "Christine" and "Say No." A short tour that includes stops in L.A. and Austin starts December 3rd. Take a listen to few tracks and download remixes of "Destroy" below:
