Pepper Jane and her guitar, Maureen, present a cross-genre repertoire of favourites, surprises and originals that swing from lofty croonings to belted lashings of aural delights.
Growing up on a farm on the Darling Downs, Pepper was singing from a young age, in churches, choirs, musicals, showers, on pushbikes and a tree stump at the bus stop. Around age 14, the sporadic Miss Jane began a new woody, wiry misdemeanour, learning some guitar chords and penning a few tales of woe and misdirection. Some (undisclosed) years later she picked up a guitar, this time loitering with actual intent, to begin cultivating the charismatic performer that is Pepper Jane.
Finally, after 2.5 minutes onstage in an outlying tent at Woodford Folk Festival on January 1, 2014 and an unfortunately dry summer, the time had arrived to leave agronomy, pizza delivery, pouring beers and workaholism behind. To chase the dream. To live it.
Sometime after this is where you meet her.
