• Monday, January 25th, Peppina will perform solo during a publication party for attorney and author Steven Beer’s book Your Child’s Career in Music and Entertainment: The Prudent Parent’s Guide from Start to Stardom. The reception takes place from noon-2PM at the Utah Conservatory, located at 4593 Silver Springs Drive, Park City, UT 84098
• Later Monday, at 4:20pm, Peppina will be at the Sundance ASCAP Music Café, located at 751 Main Street, again performing along with frequent collaborators Motopony. Peppina has become a very in-demand artist and expects to move to the States this year and tour in celebration of her new self-titled LP.
Adept on guitar, piano, and ukulele, Peppina is performing songs from her upcoming self titled release on Morey Levovitz’s new Honey Rose Records. Peppina’s breakthrough came through hitRECord (www.hitrecord.org) the innovative open collaboration website and production company founded by acclaimed actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Two of her songs were featured on the show hitRECord on TV, which aired on Pivot Network and went on to win an Emmy® for Creative Achievement in Interactive Media. And at Sundance 2014, she performed duets with Joe at the hitRECord TV series reception.
Peppina released her debut EP Follow Your Gravity, recorded in New York, to critical acclaim. She returned to Park City in 2015 to perform at the New York Lounge on Main Street. Label owner Morey Levovitz recalls, “seeing Peppina in 2015 was an inspiration for me. So much so, I decided to found the label (Honey Rose Records) and honor Peppina by making her its debut artist.” Levovitz is a Park City resident.
Film director Danny Kaufman heard her perform “We Can Go Back Again” live at that show, he knew he had the closing song for his upcoming feature film MARRIED YOUNG starring Gary Cole of HBO’s Emmy award winning comedy Veep. Kaufman then asked her to write another song for the film and “Keep This Love Alive” was born; it’s the first video from her upcoming LP and will be featured on the upcoming MARRIED YOUNG soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf4mK2tA0_4
