Mostly influenced by the music scene of the 70’s, PEPPER MASHAY was originally planning on becoming a journalist. But everything changed once she started to get up on stage to perform her own songs.
After moving and becoming a session singer in LA, PEPPER has sung for such artists as Tina Turner, Cher, Mick Jagger, Keb’ Mo’, Celine Dion and many others.
But it didn’t take long for PEPPER MASHAY to step out of the shadows and into the limelight.
In 2000, PEPPER MASHAY exploded on the music scene with her hit “Dive In The Pool" (the unofficial song from Showtime’s “Queer As Folk”). In ‘05 PEPPER released “Send Me An Angel”; the classic 80’s Pop hit with a remix from Dave Audé, and “Beauty Shop” from the MGM movie DVD featuring Queen Latifah.
Her ‘06 release called “Lost Yo Mind” went #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Play Chart. Her next song “Does Your Mamma Know” was released on her own label "Freckle Bandit Records for ’08. The song won for best Dance/Electronica category for "The USA Songwriting Competition for ’08.
“Does Your Mamma Know” was also a featured song on the highly watched “Bravo’s A-List Awards Show” and the song is on “Promo Only’s Mainstream Club Compilation”." It’s an honor to be on that compilation".
“I’ve got more surprises up my sleeve, says Pepper”. I’ve got a number of releases coming out in Europe over the summer of ‘10. "I’m really excited over my music right now". My new song
“Freeway of Love” has a video and was released at the end of Feb.’10 and will make its way up the “National Video Charts”.
It just premiered on “NewNowNext” on MTV/LOGO on Mar. 30th to rave reviews".
All the Festivals will hear the song plus “Cosmic Love Juice” and “Love & Understanding” over the summer" added Pepper.
It’s been a long traveled road but for PEPPER it’s been a road well worth it.
“No matter how long it takes,” advises PEPPER, “never give up your dreams”.
