Discovery: Pepper

Pepper is a contemporary R&B artist from the south east who caught my ear with moody and layered new track Sweet Nights.

By Graeme Smith

The track opens with a synth and sax combo that evokes a balmy summer night in the city. I was instantly transported into Pepper’s world and I felt as if I was in a car in some urban sprawl, windows down, letting in the air, still warm at midnight, while travelling from club to club.

Born and raised in Kent, Pepper is now resident in London. Like many artists, she uses music as a form of therapy – a way of just getting the feelings out there. I definitely felt a connection with those feelings in Sweet Nights.
