Roine Stolt comments on how the project came together: “I think all it started as a suggestion from the record company - putting together a new band, starting fresh, seeing if collective writing could spawn a unique style. Call it a supergroup if you want - I think we can handle that.”

Originally envisioned as a band idea, PENNA's music is written, performed and produced entirely by Penna. His influences range from current-day bands like King's X and The Life And Times to lifelong idols Stevie Wonder and The Beatles. The music winds through shades of prog, metal, shoegaze and fusion, with lyrical themes touching on death, addiction and spirituality.
Penna is best known for his drumming work with Kronin, Planet Hate, Spastic Ink, Ad Astra and Ronnie Spector. He has also released EDM music, had compositions featured in tv & movies, and authored content for several Korg electronic instruments.
