Peppina - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Peppina
Helsinki native Peppina made her live debut as a teenager, when the music she'd been recording and uploading to the collaborative multimedia website hitRECord earned her an invitation to Los Angeles to perform as part of a television special curated by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. While the story of her American debut might sound like something of a fairy tale, the young Finnish songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is as real as they come, and her debut album, 'Fire,' is proof that she's a musical force to be reckoned with. Recorded in New York City with producer Charles Newman (The Magnetic Fields), 'Fire' showcases Peppina's endearing mix of infectious hooks, intimate vocals, and inspirational lyrics. "When I write songs, I think about writing to myself when I was 13," she explains. "I want to inspire everyone, most especially young girls, to feel like they can be and do anything they want."

'Fire' follows the critical success of Peppina's 2015 EP 'Follow Your Gravity,' her first studio recording. Popdose hailed the music as "lush," "embracing," and "memorable," while Renowned For Sound praised her "cloud-like vocals and incredibly honest lyrics," and PopDust dubbed her an "eclectic siren" who "reconstructs the modern perspective with a penchant for realism and authenticity." Equally as indebted to classic artists like The Beatles and Stevie Wonder as modern favorites like Regina Spektor and Modest Mouse, Peppina's songwriting blends pop sensibilities and indie rock orchestration with a sonic sophistication that belies her young age.
