Meet Lenina Crowne, Penn State’s Indie-Folk Rock Band

What started off as a hobby between Penn State freshmen and music enthusiasts Eric Faust and Mike Mulligan has turned into one of State College’s premiere bands. Lenina Crowne has been hitting the scene in recent months, made up of seven (and sometimes eight) Penn State students.

The band has a complex and unique sound that has landed them recent gigs at Cafe and the Phyrst. “I would describe our sound as indie, rock and roll groovy, with folk roots that we’re trying to hide,” Faust said.

The band let us invade its basement to get to know them and check out some of their latest music. Here is Lenina Crowne:

Band members:

Eric Faust – Lead vocalist
Mike D. Mulligan – pianist
Emma Ripp – cellist
Blake Gifford – singer-songwriter
Nick Rudenko – saxophone
Eric Seidle – bass guitar
Greg Ford – drums, guitar
