The folk-pop duo PepperDreams was born in 2017 in a remote valley in the South of Switzerland.
The duo Mattia Beffa and Susanna Lepori share a common love for roots music. Their sound is the result of folk roots combined with melodies of modern pop.
The band name PepperDreams means that dreams have healing effects on the soul of the individual, just as pepper was once used by ancient civilizations for its healing effects on the human body. Mattia Beffa and Susanna Lepori write all their songs themselves and tell stories full of emotion. Together with their production team Jonas Macullo, they create folk-pop songs with a touching intimacy and great attitude.
At the Emergenza Festival Switzerland 2018 they were awarded for their simple but clever songwriting. In the same year PepperDreams played as support act for the award-winning prog rock ensemble PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi) and the famous singer-songwriter Eugenio Finardi at the Beatles Days Festival in Bellinzona.
October 22, 2021 they release their debut ep “Suitcase full of dreams” in the midst of the worldwide pandemic, giving us hope and encouraging us to follow our dreams even in the hardest of times.
