Rodger King is a pro both on and off the stage. Originally from Humnoke, Arkansas, Rodger has a vast background in bluegrass and country music. A talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, he has played with The Grand Prairie Boys, Buffalo City Ramblers, the Troy Cook Band, and as a solo artist. In a Bluegrass Unlimited Review of Penn and King's 2016 album KingPenn, Bill Conger wrote fittingly of King, "If I were to imagine the voice of the Marlboro man, it would be Rodger King. His traditional sounds breathes gritty life into [his] songs."
Tiffany Turner grew up in Mountain View, Ark., where she learned to pick bluegrass at an early age. A multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, Tiffany is an integral part of the band’s sound, lending her immense banjo skills and some flat-pick guitar here and there as well. She has played along with many bands and artists including Little Roy Lewis, The Sullivan Family, Clancy Ferguson, and the list goes on.
Will Penn is a sound uniter as the bassist for the band. Pulling influences from many of his favorite players, he delivers critical solid timing, versatility of style, and a great ear for arranging new music.
Andy Novara is a multi-instrumentalist, music teacher, and session player residing in the St. Louis area of Missouri. Growing up in Illinois, he was exposed to bluegrass while working summers at Cypress Creek Wildlife Refuge and from there developed an interest in the music of Bill Monroe, Tony Rice, and Earl Scruggs. Highly educated in all types of music, Andy holds a Masters in Jazz Performance and has studied with master musicians such as Bobby Hicks, Mike Compton, and Rick Haydon.
Titus Turner is one hot picker on both mandolin and flat-pick guitar. He hails from Mountain View, is Tiffany’s younger brother (she says she taught him everything he knows), and fills in with the Casey Penn Band as a utility player.
