“You never know what will happen if you dare to share your art,” she says. “For a long time I thought, ‘I can’t be an artist. That won’t happen.’ But denying myself made me really unhappy. I realized that I don’t choose to make music – I just do. It’s how I live. It’s what I am.” – Peppina
Peppina is a breath of fresh air in a market saturated with constant new music. Her EP is an imaginatively modern collection of songs that blend pop, acoustic, electronic, and cinematic components in one captivating place. Catchy single, “Time Standing Still,” is sure to lock the listener in from the first note. Peppina has a beautifully poetic understanding of the world around her and her EP is extremely relatable and calming.
Peppina caught the attention of acclaimed actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who founded the innovative open collaboration website/production company, hitRECord, and invited her to Los Angeles to perform her enchanting tune, “We Can Go Back Again” live for thoughts on “hitRECord On TV. This performance brought Peppina to the US again in 2014 to record thought provoking new EP, Follow Your Gravity, in New York City.
