Biography

With the wheels well-oiled and on full steam The Pepper Pots train arrives with its fourth album “Train to your lover” , a new step forward in a career in constant evolution, yet continuing within the same parameters - those of finding that “Old School” sound of the best albums of the mid-60’s.

To find this sound The Pepper Pots have recorded the album in their own recording studio “Black Pepper Studio”, using an entirely analogical setup and using similar instruments to those used in the golden era of Soul. Each band member has collaborated in each of the tasks involved in the recording: the composition, arrangements, production, mixing... and the final mastering touch comes from the hands of the legendary Bob Ohlsson, Motown sound engineer during the classic period of the label -between 1965 and 1972, working with leading artists including Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Smokie Robinson & the Miracles, The Spinners or Gladys Knight & the Pips.

The result is 12 own tracks that stretch from the best of the Supremes to early Jackson 5, from deep soul ballads of Doris Duke to ground-breaking northern soul; classic sounds and influences The Pepper Pots have sprinkled with new life with some of their best songs to date.

With 300 appearances and counting, The Pepper Pots have moved audiences in concerts around the globe: Tokyo, Osaka, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, London, Moscow, Helsinki, Vienna, Verona, Prague, Bern, Barcelona, Madrid…
The Pepper Pots will showcase their new album in front of their local fans at the Sala la Mirona, Salt on April 29. That will be the starting point for a whistle-stop tour of the main concert halls and festivals on Spain followed by, a week later, a trip abroad to play in Belgium.
