Organic Software: Penny Hanna's Pop Tunes from the 1980's

Over a three year period beginning in 1985, Ms. Hanna penned and recorded three albums worth of pop tunes under the "Organic Software" banner. These recordings were done in our home project studio using what was in the 1980s the latest computer-controlled synthesizer technology along with semi-pro multi-track tape machines. Penny would write the tunes and author the basic MIDI tracks and then hand them over to Slim for further enhancement before laying down the vocals and other instruments. Back then we got as far as the album cover but unfortunately none of these albums ever made it to vinyl -- so we just sold cassette versions at our gigs. There's some terrific (if somewhat dated) material here, so please give a listen...

We're currently in the process of remastering and re-releasing all of these recordings. We're starting with Organic Software Volume 3 "Often Running", originally released in 1988. You can listen to or download it from this page as well as stream it from any of the popular streaming services.
