Peppina hails from Finland, a northern European country with great natural beauty but with a culture that, in her opinion, values modesty a bit too much. Words are a funny thing. There are a select few people who can do something much more than simply speak or sing with them -- they craft them to make magic. Peppina is that kind of artist. Give this gifted singer and multi-instrumentalist a phrase, and she'll turn it unexpectedly on its head. And that's just the beginning – this wise 19-year-old is as playful with music as she is with words. When Peppina puts them both together something special happens: an emotional alchemy that’s making people stand up and pay attention.
The liberating force was hitRECord, the innovative open collaboration Website/production company founded by acclaimed actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“3rdRock from the Sun,” The Dark Knight Rises, 50/50). “I was afraid to share my music with people for a long time," Peppina admits. “But I was fascinated with hitRECord. Their focus is on the art, not the artist, and that's what made me dare to put my music out there."
Self-funded via the revenue she earned from her success on hitRECord (the site splits all revenue earned 50/50 with its artists), Peppina called on her new stateside contacts to build a powerful songwriting and production team. Collaborating and recording with a hit-making group that included Jeff Franzel, Jimmy Landry and Michael Spivack, she was also joined in the studio by top session drummer Shawn Pelton (Sheryl Crow, “Saturday Night Live”).
