As promised, Pepper is returning to the rock! The spirit of aloha is alive and well and currently residing in sunny Southern California . Meet Pepper; Bret Bollinger, Kaleo Wassman, and Yesod Williams, three young innovative minds mixed with divine inspiration from the Hawaiian Islands. Pepper has been perched on the cusp of success since their relocation to Southern California in 1999, inspired by Volcom Entertainments excitement and interest in producing and distributing the bands endless eruption of original music. “Given It” recorded at Kailua-Kona studio Jags (actually a coffee shack), is the bands first official release combining dancehall, reggae, punk, hip-hop, and pop, sparked some initial interest in Warped Tour promoter Kevin Lyman. With Kevin’s interest and Volcom’s involvement Pepper graced the premiere side stage at Warped Tour 2001. As the early morning heat rises on the grounds of the annual punk rock “summer camp”, Volcom’s side stage is being built, however, not by someone from the higher budget stages and lighting companies hired by the “econo-core”, tour, but by the very hands that will later be handling skins and axe duties for this particular side stage’s freshest new talent…the sunny sounds of Hawaii ’s very own Pepper. Immediately following a whirlwind of shows, Pepper takes to the studio with Steve Kravac (Less Than Jake, MXPX) to create ground swell album ” Kona Town “. Released in March of 2002, with an overwhelming surge of signature sounds ” Kona Town ” paddles the band into uncharted territory, scanning over 45,000 copies to date. This sophomore release by Pepper not only charted for several weeks on the DMA chart in their hometown of Hawaii , but also yielded #1 hit “Give It Up” (aka Dirty Hot Sex) on Clear Channel affiliate Star 101.9 KUCD in June of 2003. KEDJ in Phoenix added the track in September of 2003 which instantly jumped into the TOP 10 “call-out” (or most requested), and still receives recurrent airplay. Concentrating on live performances and culminating rich sincere relationships with each and every fan, Pepper continued to tour throughout 2003 and into 2004 which included dates with 311 and Snoop Dogg (with Pepper as main support) appearances at the annual Bob Marley Birthday celebration, San Diego’s premiere Festival “Street Scene”, some scattered headline club dates and a complete US tour with Slightly Stoopid. The bands ambitious spirit and relentless positivity has made them one of the most successful, independent, nationally touring acts of today. This Dub/rock power trio’s fan base is not limited as one would assume to Southern California surf towns, with sold out shows in Phoenix, Orlando, Jacksonville, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Seattle, Eugene, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco Pepper proves that there are no limits. — source http://www.pepperlive.com/bio.htm
