Penny Lane has a vast experience in show business and the music industry. She started her career at an early age and joined The Tony Evans Band singing live on weekly BBC radio shows. She has worked with Cliff Richard, Johnny Mathis and Tony Bennett amongst others and has appeared at major venues throughout the world.

Her TV credits include many guest slots with Terry Wogan, and over 50 appearances on various TV shows and BBC Specials. This established her as a well known TV personality and her tremendously popular stage show led to a very successful season at The London Palladium plus many Royal Gala appearances. 

Penny developed her career to combine her excellent singing voice with her talent as a songwriter and co-wrote with well known stars including Billy Ocean. Several of her songs have been recorded by major artists such as Gloria Gaynor and The Three Degrees. She signed a five year contract with CBS, and had the first recording of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables under the name Patricia Lane.

Penny has successfully established herself as a singing coach, and her students have had lead roles in West End musicals that includChitty Chitty Bang Bang, Les Miserables, Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music and Billy Elliot. Previous students have included Moss Kena and Daniel Briskin.

Penny is currently working on a new stage musical that’s incredibly close to her heart. Inspired by her battle with cancer, the musical is uplifting and life-affirming.

The same illness also drove Penny to create the Generations Choir. This is made up of performers from all walks of life including some from West End shows. Many have been Penny’s singing coaching pupils and have gone on to starring roles.

The Generations Choir was formed to raise money for the Lynda Jackson McMillan Centre and to raise awareness of breast cancer.
