The story of Pepperwine began in the fall of 2010. A guitar player in a punk band, Breece, yearned to sing properly. He contacted a local music school and was told he would be given vocal lessons by a "bad-ass" vocal teacher – one Kellie Shane. The rest is history.
Pepperwine existed initially as an acoustic trio. In the summer of 2014, Pepperwine added electricity with a rhythm section (Julian Michalski & Michael Campanile) and has since played shows up and down the state of NJ while also venturing into nearby Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and Delaware. Adding to two previously released 5-song EPs, Pepperwine released their first full length album in August 2018 called "Bright Ideas" - an 11 song, genre-blending record that fuses together elements of funk, rock, jazz, and soul.
Pepperwine continues pushing forward with a schedule full of shows, practices full of creative juices, faces full of smiles, and minds full of bright ideas. Stay tuned!
