Danimal Planet is the brainchild of front man Danimal Pinson, who started with a collection of lush, ethereal loop-based songs that he could perform by himself in a complex dance of coordinated foot pedal stomps and knob twists/turns.
In April 2014, longtime musical collaborator and drummer, Adam Brown, came on board, bringing an electronic drum kit and several other toys to the mix.
The two quickly recruited the captivating sounds of local Chattanooga sweethearts Josh Sable on guitar and Maria Jordania-Sable on keys/backup vocals.
With the full sound now completely rounded out, the band recorded their debut EP themselves in January 2015, only to release "Penny In The Well" in April 2015 to raving reviews from both fans and local critics alike.
"With influence from the likes of Sigur Ros, Alt-J, Flaming Lips, their sound was one of the most intriguing of the festival. Even the rain couldn’t tear the crowd away from their inspiring set that methodically built soundscapes layered together to form a rich and vibrant work of art unlike any other." - Katie Davis/Hype Music Festivals
"Penny in the Well is another entry in what is easily some of the most gorgeous music being made anywhere today." - Marc Michael/The Pulse
