NH7 Weekender, India
Zervas & Pepper are a Wales based folk-rock duo whose harmonic, laid-back sound is currently making waves on UK Radio stations BBC Radio 2 & BBC 6 Music as well as a growing presence on the UK wide Live circuit.
The couple discovered one another while performing in their home town clubs in Cardiff as solo artists. Finding they had a shared love of Harmony Heavy Evocative Folk Rock, Zervas & Pepper began writing and recording together. Along with their band they promise elegantly crafted songs that transport their audience with escapist narrative and soaring melodies.
Under their own label ‘Zerodeo’ Records the band released 2 introductory EPs in2008/9 respectively and in Spring 2011 put out their début Album ‘Somewhere in the City’.
Z&P have just released their second LP ‘LIFEBRINGER’ released 22nd of July 2013 to much critical acclaim from press/ radio and a nomination for the prestigous Welsh Music Prize.
Zervas & Pepper have been tipped as a band to watch this year. As word continues to spread with a string of live dates ahead and an ever growing live set up Zervas & Pepper continue to bring strong live performance to the fore appearing at Festivals and theatres as a two or six piece outfit.
