PepperDreams are a duo of the folk-pop genre, born in 2017 in an untouched valley in the Italian part of Switzerland.
The duo Mattia Beffa and Susanna Lepori share a passion for roots music.Their sound is the result of folk roots blended with the edgy melodies of modern pop.The band’s name is meant to evoke the feeling that dreams have healing effects on the individual’s soul, just as pepper was once used by ancient civilizations for its healing powers on the human body.PepperDreams write all their songs themselves and tell stories full of emotion. Together with their Production Team with Jonas Macullo they create folk-pop songs with moving intimacy and great attitude.
At Emergenza Festival Switzerland 2018 they were honored for their simple but brilliant songwriting. The same year PepperDreams played as a support band for the award-winning Prog-Rock group PFM (Awarded Forneria Marconi), and celebrated singer-songwriter Eugenio Finardi at the Beatles Days festival in Bellinzona.
The first EP “Suitcase full of dreams” was produced during the Pandemic in a small home studio inside a rustic Chalet nestled in the greenery of the picturesque village of Rossa, Calanca Valley. Songwriting sessions, lots of grilling, a dose of nature and carefreeness at an altitude of 1,000 meters strengthened a friendship and the team. After the release of “Suitcase full of dreams” PepperDreams brought their songs to the stage as a Trio with Jonas Macullo at the keys, who is now an official member of the group.
A new EP is scheduled for release in 2023.
