Live Performance ASCAP
Interview with Peppina
We were so excited to be at ASCAP Music Cafe again this year at Sundance Film festival. We were in for a special treat when multi-instrumentalist, Finnish indie pop/rock artist, Peppina joined Motopony on stage for a few songs and then did a few of her own.
She was the queen of Sundance, performing at over 6 events over 5 days! Performances included:
Festival Base Camp; Arctic Blast Party; Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards Dinner; Sundance Art Lounge; Sundance ASCAP Music Café; Steven Beer Book Reception
We love her haunting voice and amazing music!
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. For years this appreciation for humility as a public standard held her back from stepping into the spotlight. But as her skill on vocals, piano, guitar, and classical flute grew in step with her wordsmithing abilities, she made a discovery that would help set her free.
The liberating force was hitRECord, the innovative open collaboration Website/production company founded by acclaimed actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“3rd Rock 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.”
We cannot believe she is 20 years old! Her new EP Follow Your Gravity is amazing!! We had the opportunity to talk to her about her career and her new ventures!
