Take Aim: Amy Sciarretto vs. Peppina
Wed, 08 Apr 2015 13:14:43
Finnish singer Peppina dared to Take Aim with us today. We're doing two Take Aims today, since twice is nice.
We're glad Peppina agreed to get in the Take Aim ring. She's on her way to becoming a music therapist, but right now, she has music to bring to the masses. Get to know her now, since she rules.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
Young singer/songwriter from Finland who dared to share, took risks, connected with the bed and amazing people and ended up making her first album in NYC.
If you were not doing music, you would be…
… Enjoying it with good company and great food! And meanwhile probably also studying to become a music therapist, which I'm planning to probably do one day anyway.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Listening. And occasionally drawing portraits and silly comics.
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
So many moments, but one that really surprised me was the vocal recording session for 'We Can Go Back Again,' especially singing the last loop in just two takes... All the other recording days were light and fun, but this one really hit somewhere deep, it was so intense that once we were done, I had a migraine and could barely speak, holding in tears. I guess it was because of the history of the song, and how many people I've been fortunate to connect with because of it.
That's so powerful! Finish this sentence: Peppina is the artist that…
… is not afraid to mean what she sings, to go on adventures when she needs to, or to enjoy learning from the unexpected.
