The story of Pepperwine began in the fall of 2010 when a guitar player in a punk band contacted a local music school in hopes of learning how to sing properly. He was told he would be given vocal lessons by a “bad ass” teacher. Now 11 years later, this bad ass music teacher and guitarist together have produced two 5-song EPs, one 11-song full length LP, various singles, a marriage, and the best band you just found out about – PEPPERWINE!
With just four members and eight hands, Pepperwine uses voice, piano, synthesizer, guitar, bass, and percussion to create hip shaking-rhythms and head-nodding tunes. Their catalog of music effortlessly blends elements of soul, pop, R&B, funk, and rock with Leading Lady Kellie offering a powerful yet sultry vocal.
The four-piece band has played 191 live shows at venues and festivals throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and Delaware. Although 2020 may have halted their ability to play out, Pepperwine has been busy throughout lockdown writing, practicing, and perfecting new music.
The repertoire continues to grow, the grooves are getting more infectious… stay tuned!
