Pepa Knight Album Launch
Jinja Safari co-frontman and East Coast musician, Pepa Knight, has been developing an impressive amount of buzz since launching his own solo venture in early 2014. After accumulating a notable degree of praise for his debut single release - the emphatic 'Rahh!' - Knight has now announced the release of follow-up track 'Clams' for late-June.
To celebrate his sophomore single release, Pepa Knight will be performing two highly anticipated debut live shows in Sydney and Melbourne in August, at Goodgod Small Club and Northcote Social Club respectively.
'Rahh!' was embraced by worldwide tastemakers and music lovers alike after its release in April, with rave reviews arriving from the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and even India - via an in-depth interview between Pepa and Rolling Stone India about the writing and recording process behind his debut collection of songs titled Hypnotized (due late-2014).
Pepa's debut performances in August will be an opportunity for listeners to experience his uniquely soulful and affecting music in-person for the first time. Paired with a brand new single - the anthemic and stirring 'Clams' - Knight's future as a uniquely Australian artist is looking faultless.
Pepa Knight's forthcoming single 'Clams' will be officially released on Wednesday 25 June.
FRI AUGUST 1 ' GOODGOD SMALL CLUB, SYDNEY NSW
THU AUGUST 7 ' NORTHCOTE SOCIAL CLUB, MELBOURNE VIC
