3 Penny Acre is a musical collaboration between three songwriters: Bayard Blain, Bernice Hembree, and Bryan Hembree. Fans and critics have identified their unique, Ozark-inspired sound as distinct, yet universally appealing. Listeners in all corners have come to appreciate their attention to lyrics, harmony, and carefully crafted acoustic arrangements steeped in roots music traditions but with a focus on fresh, new songwriting.
“3 Penny Acre’s music evokes the drastic landscape of middle America. Their songs carry both sadness and triumph in the portrayal of their homelands. This clarity is what separates them from other Americana/Folk artists.” - Laura Wortman of The Honey Dewdrops
